David Kilpatrick has been organiser of Kelso Folk Club – jointly or solo – since 1995. He is well known in guitar-playing and folk club circles, but not a ‘gigging musician’ – a handful of Edinburgh Fringe appearances, Borders Books gigs, folk club guest visits and that’s the story! The main reason for this is work, and a commitment to running a weekly Friday night session with guest artists in Kelso.

In 2020 David produced a second full-length high quality CD featuring 21 tracks by club members, available now through the club’s website:

David has a Soundclick archive with nearly 100 recordings of traditional and original tunes and songs, some carefully mastered and some quickly captured before they were forgotten. You can find this at
