Here are some recordings of Bob Dylan songs that I did a while back. This Sunday 24th May 2020 I will be doing a live session of Dylan songs on my Facebook Page. It is part of the “Bob Dylan’s Week” festival in Florence, Italy that I am unable to attend because of the dreaded virus! Check it out 14:00 in U.K. and 15:00 Italy.
Here’s an old song and recording from the late 90s that I have just re-released. Currently on Soundcloud but will be available on Spotify and all online stores soon. Song written by Kenny Wilson and played and recorded by Leicester Blues-Rock group “The Lizzards” featuring Kenny Wilson Guitar/Vocals, Jim Gamble Guitar, Jenny Carter Bass, Peter Houtman Keyboard, Graham Summers Drums.
I recently posted a piano arrangement of this. Well, I had a request to do a vocal version. So here it is, recorded in my home studio with me playing all the instruments. It is a wonderfully evocative song that I first learnt when I was at school.
While I am in lock down from the dreaded Corona Virus I have decided to compose pieces and arrangements for the piano. A new venture for me. Hope you like it!
Here are some more recent recordings by Kenny Wilson on Soundcloud. You can also find them on Spotify, YouTube Music and Apple Music as well. Give them a listen!
Here is a video I have just made of my trip to New York last November when I saw Bob Dylan live at the Beacon Theatre. It was a great gig and he was really on form and sang quite a few rarities.
This video is the first I have made using Photoshop Elements and I am pleased with the result. Expect more! The music is from 2017 by a Gypsy Jazz group called “La Reverie”, no longer active. I played accordion with them. The tune is a Django Reinhardt composition called “Swing Gitane”. Recorded by Rick Wilson at his Leicestershire studio.
Two new songs recently released by Kenny Wilson available on Spotify, Amazon and Apple Music. Listen to them in their entirety here. Produced and Recorded in his home studio in Leicester, U.K. February 2020.

Here are some studio recordings of my songs with me and Mick Pini recorded in Ichenhausen, Germany recently. Recorded at the lb-studio (Tonstudio) by ace engineer Tobias.
“Sugar Man” and “Ever Reaching Out For You” are songs I wrote in the mid 70s when I played in a duo with Mick. We haven’t played them together since then but it all came back to us. A real nostalgic moment. I think the songs still stand up and I am so glad I have returned them to my repertoire. Thanks to Mick and Tobias for all their help. Below is a video of our performance of “Sugar Man” at a gig in Birkenried.
