“….a memorable aggressive bouzouki style…. Powerful…” Mojo, June 2004
Benji Kirkpatrick
Benji is embarking on a new solo project, reinterpreting the songs of Jimi  Hendrix; stripping back the layers of guitar, the psychedelia and the era,  revealing the songs in their pure form. Remembered for his pioneering,  exceptional ability as a guitarist, on (and off) stage antics, Hendrix’s legacy  extends to a wealth of great songs.  Leaving behind the guitar altogether  (Hendrix did that rather well…), Benji tackles his material on bouzouki,  banjo and mandolin, and will perform the songs of Hendrix like you’ve never  heard them before. The live show will incorporate a first half of Benji’s own material, with the  second half entirely dedicated to the Hendrix material and set against a  specially commissioned visual backdrop, to be created by Shropshire based  artist, Esther Thorpe. The Hendrix songs will feature on a new album  ‘Hendrix Songs’ due for national release on 18 September 2015, marking 45  years since Hendrix’s death, and Benji will be touring the show throughout  that month.
