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:

LC was on great form and positively skipped off the stage before returning for each of three encores, 73 years old or not!
