Here’s my version of Woody Guthrie’s song “Slipknot” all about the evils of capital punishment.
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 of photos that I took of the beautiful city of Ulm, Germany in January 2020. With the music of J.S.Bach.
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.
