“To make no bones” about something – to say or do something without delay or scruple, regardless of the consequences; to be honest and direct without any risk that the statement may be misunderstood; to come straight to the point.
Make no bones – two CDs of new recordings by John Kirkpatrick – each one representing one half of a typical evening’s performance. No frills, no additives, just how it comes.
Too come straight to the point – John Kirkpatrick is widely acknowledged as a master of the squeezebox. A world class musician who has been at the forefront of the British folk scene for nearly forty years. Fledg’ling Records are very proud to announce this splendid new double CD set capturing Mr K at the top of his game.
