The Sultans of Squeeze is a splendid new collaboration between two of England’s finest squeezebox maestros – masters of all that needs squeezing. JOHN KIRKPATRICK well known from his recordings with Brass Monkey, the Richard Thompson Band and solo has teamed up with the House Band’s acclaimed CHRIS PARKINSON to record a diverse collection of tunes and songs. The duo take on a powerful repertoire drawn from the English tradition, music hall, zydeco and some original compositions.
“Exceptionally fine playing from two of the best in the business. It’s interesting, lively and fun – what more could you possibly want?” The Living Tradition.
