Pat Kilbride - Rock And More Roses
Guitarist, cittern player and singer Pat Kilbride comes from Co. Kildare in Ireland and has earned a reputation as one the most progressive, dynamic musicians currently performing in Irish music. Moving base over the years from Ireland, to England, Brittany, Belgium, the USA & Spain, Pat has travelled and played all over the world with many fantastic musicians, including two stints with Scotland's Battlefield Band.
Released in 1989, 'Rock and More Roses' is a compilation of Pat's recordings from the 80s & 90s, and tracks 1-10 were originally released on Temple Records as an album called 'Rock and Roses'.
" If you have ever marvelled how Celtic Fiddlers fingers fly over the strings - embellishing the main notes with extra little grace notes - youre going to enjoy the guitar playing of Pat Kilbride - a fine musician with wealth of material ranging from Child ballads to Sting"
"From start to finish this album is simply a joy to listen to. With a predominant flavour of strings (Kilbride is a master of acoustic guitar and modern cittern) its cadences spark and scatter into the scenes like light through leaves on a summer day"
