Bendrix: Benji Kirkpatrick’s Hendrix Project
Friday 11th September 2015 - Starts 8pm
A well-known performer on the UK folk scene and member of the mighty Bellowhead, Benji Kirkpatrick embarks on a new solo project, reinterpreting the songs of Jimi Hendrix; stripping back the layers of guitar, the psychedelia, and the era, revealing the songs in their pure form. Remembered for his pioneering, exceptional ability as a guitarist, on (and off) stage antics, Hendrix’s legacy extends to a wealth of great songs. Leaving behind the guitar altogether (Hendrix did that rather well…), Benji tackles his material on bouzouki, banjo and mandolin, and will perform the songs of Hendrix like you’ve never heard them before.
Benji Kirkpatrick is a musician and songwriter; a founding member of both folk big band Bellowhead, and acclaimed folk trio Faustus, and has toured extensively with Maddy Prior and Seth Lakeman.
