Kirk McElhinney Trio

Sun 10 July 2022

A very cool, mellow gig to close our weekend festival, Kirk calls his sound Urban Folk. Described by Nitin Sawney as ‘a melting pot of sonic bliss’, Kirk is joined by two artists in their own right to form this beautiful sound.

Andy Hay on drums recently released his second album after the acclaimed “Many Rivers” made its mark on the British music scene.

Long time collaborator John Ellis has worked with The Cinematic Orchestra, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lily Allen, Tom Jones and so many more

All three blend together vocally and musically with real fire and soul.
Kirk is a national treasure with a universal aim. To see him with the trio is to see him truly in his element.

His songs and his delivery have an uncanny ability to capture people’s hearts and move minds and bodies.
