The quality of Kirk McElhinney’s songwriting, his voice and guitar playing is recognised by any who come across his work.
His sound once described by Nitin Sawney as “a melting pot of sonic bliss”, Kirk himself calls urban folk, has an uncanny ability to capture people’s hearts and move minds and bodies. He is currently on the road promoting his new album “You Are Not Your Past” on Manchester WorldFolk Label Limefield. 
Kirk is a national treasure with a universal aim. He has appeared alongside such luminaries as folk legend Bert Jansch, Tommy Emmanuel and Nitin Sawhney. 

Exciting and engaging…full of surprises. – Daily Express
