Benji Kirkpatrick

Although making his debut as a member of Steeleye Span on this current tour, bassist Roger Carey has had a long association with the band – having formed a duo with fiddle player Peter Knight in the 1980s and played alongside drummer Liam Genockey on numerous occasions. He is probably best known for touring throughout the UK, Europe, USA and Canada with multi award winning pianist Liane Carroll, to whom he is married. He was also part of the Three Friends project, playing the music of and featuring ex members of cult 70’s rock band Gentle Giant. With roots in progressive rock, jazz, blues, folk and a love of early Bob Dylan, Roger is perfectly placed to help steer Steeleye Span through the next chapter of their enduring career.
