ANTON’S ecnors i

Anton Kirkpatrick’s music harks back to ; the days oi the acoustic guitar heroes oi i the 70’s. With a prodigious technique and teeming with ideas, his style lies somewhere between John Renboume, John Fahey and John Williams. Ilot jazz guitar but too Imaginative and Improvised to be labelled easily, his ilrst album, on his own label, Isa ! beguiling mixture oi moods irom the l irantic bluegrass oi A Day in The Country to the rather baroque Rue d'Arrnistice. Joumai de Papa starts quietly and Is soon awash with pulsing percussion while The Person inside is a haunting Martynesque indulgence with delayed echo and pedals. The accompaniment oi bass and percussion is most tasteiuily deployed and the Glasgow produced album EXOTIC JOURNAL Is on Fretioose Records FRFF1.Anton Kirkpatrick Is appearing ln Plationn's guitar night in Edinburgh on the 9th.
