More information about BENJI KIRKPATRICK + Canute's Plastic Army tickets

Benji Kirkpatrick is an English folk singer, songwriter and master of multiple instruments. Son of folk musicians Sue Harris and Chippenham Folk Festival Patron John Kirkpatrick MBE, Benji brings his own well-crafted songs of social commentary, personal exploration and environmental concern to the west country.  Having released the debut album ‘Gold Has Worn Away’ with his new power trio – Benji Kirkpatrick & The Excess – in 2019, Benji strips it all back for a purely acoustic performance at Swindon Folk Club.  

Benji Kirkpatrick is a key member of the folk big band and BBC Folk Award winners Bellowhead, and one third of BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Group nominee Faustus. Benji has worked and toured extensively with Seth Lakeman, featuring on his Mercury Prize nominated 2004 release ’Kitty Jay' and ‘Freedom Fields’ (Relentless 2007) which recently celebrated its 15th Anniversary Tour.


In 2017, folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span head-hunted Benji for their new line up, 40 years after his Dad, John, was in the band. He has also worked with numerous other artists including Maddy Prior (Steeleye Span), Oysterband, John Jones, Thea Gilmore and Joan as Police Woman.



Canute's Plastic Army features the soaring, passionate vocals of Anish Harrison and dynamic, intricate acoustic guitar of Neil Mercer. Taking inspiration from Swindon's local history, the environment and Hammerman Poet Alfred Williams, they make a perfect acompaniment to Benji's style of Folk Rock.
