JOHN KIRKPATRICK ~ Mazurka Berserker FLED 3030

fled3030.jpgA stunning series of duets with some of John’s favourite musicians was the inspiration for this great new album. Recorded by Oliver Knight in Robin Hood’s Bay and then added to at studios as far apart as London, Los Angeles and Sydney! Collaborating musicians include Richard Thompson, Martin Carthy, Dave Swarbrick, Bob Johnson, Ray Fisher, Alistair Anderson, Kevin Dempsey, Ben Mandelson, James Fagan & Nancy Kerr. Mazurka Berserker contains some of the finest (and most complicated) music JK has ever recorded.
