Benji Kirkpatrick & The Excess

Alternative roots band

Prolific musician Benji has for many years been the guitar & bouzouki-playing powerhouse at the core of successful bands Bellowhead, Seth Lakeman Band and Faustus. Benji’s own writings are now vibrantly being brought to life in Benji Kirkpatrick & The Excess; a classic power trio with Bellowhead band-mate, Pete Flood, on drums and Pete Thomas on bass.
