David Kilpatrick at String Jam Club

Chris Martin shot this video of Kelso’s David Kilpatrick singing another happy song at String Jam Club, end of May – Clive Carroll’s fantastic guitar skills being the real attraction, of course, with the usual support from several floor spots.

The small guitar is a Brook Bovey 21.5″ scale tuned to F#C#f#bc#f’# (DADGAD four frets up). The song is traditional with a strong influence on the guitar setting from Dáithí Sproule’s version as performed by Altan. See:

Le Jardin June 5th

Due to the noise from Le Jardin’s refrigerators, recordings of song performance were not so successful on Friday June 5th. Here, though, is an instrument which can mask the sound of a humming fridge with ease – Ian Croall on Deger electronic smallpipes!
