"I enjoyed listening to Kirk's music and I hope that he will have great success… In these musically competitive times, it's difficult for artists to get the attention they deserve - I hope that wider acclaim will result for this project and I look forward to hearing more in the future."

Jeff Jarvis CEO, Kendor Music Publishers


"Kirk S. McWhorter's "Brambleshire Wood" is a powerful and remarkable recording. Whether or not you have Scottish and English ancestry, as I do, you'll love this terrific collection of time-tested songs. The skillful arrangements utilizing traditional and modern instruments will transport you from the serenity of the highland meadows to the chaos of a lowland battlefield. As I listened to the music, I began to feel as though I was born on the wrong continent and centuries too late."



"Brambleshire Wood" is Kirk's debut solo album.
