John Kirkpatrick is one of the most prolific figures on the English folk scene, performing solo, in duos,
acoustic groups and electric bands, and has established an enviable reputation as an
instrumental virtuoso (melodeon, Anglo concertina and button accordion), as well as a
leading interpreter of English folk music. He has been a member of the Albion Country
Band, Magic Lantern, The Richard Thompson Band, Umps and Dumps, Steeleye Span, Brass
Monkey, Trans-Europe Diatonique, and Band of Hope, as well as numerous ceilidh bands.
As songwriter, composer, choreographer, and musical director, he has contributed to over
sixty plays in the theatre and on radio. And as featured artiste, band member, or session
player, his music can be heard on over 200 different commercial recordings.
John has lived in Shropshire since 1973, where he still dances with the Morris team
he founded in 1975, The Shropshire Bedlams.

Reviews of 2017 CD Coat-Tails Flying
This fine collection of songs and tunes is a joy to listen to. JK is still at the top of his
game and long may he continue! Barry Goodman in Shire Magazine
With his Coat-tails flying, Kirkpatrick being able to play just about any kind of music
on any kind of squeezebox (with buttons, that is) is happily enjoying himself; and
listeners will too. Songlines

There is something special about this one . . . a terrific sense of fun about it all.
Needless to say his command of all things squeezebox is as masterly as ever . . .it
captures a great musician with a new lease of life. The Living Tradition

Coat-tails Flying is nothing less than a definitively signature solo album from the good
Mr K, on which he is in splendid voice (robust and upfront) and both nimble and sparky
in his perennially expert squeezeboxery. Folk Radio UK

However enjoyable this and all his previous albums are, it must be pointed out that the
recorded John cannot compare with the sheer exhilaration and magic of seeing the man
Shirley Collins has called English musics mighty heart of oak perform live. There are
some of us who try to build regular attendance at his gigs into our well-being
programmes. fRoots
