Kentigern - Kentigern (1979 Scotland) @VBR192


Kentigern was a group formed in 1978 out of a regular session at the Victoria Bar, Glasgow. 
This was a band who realised the increased range of variation which could be achieved by having more members, at a time when larger groups were relatively uncommon. This put them at the forefront of a musical development which increasingly saw individual band members being given opportunities to lead sets or take solo numbers, thus helping to inspire many others.
