Exactly one year after the first episode of Kirby’s Gold, John Carroll Kirby returns with episode 2 of the series. In this episode, Kirby and musician SK Kakraba explore SK’s instrument, the Gyil, a xylophone-like instrument from his native country of Ghana.
Kirby’s next album Septet will be released summer 2021.
The pilot episode of Kirby’s Gold features artist Ariana Papademetropoulos.
“The inspiration was a beloved public access show by the name of California’s Gold with Huell Howser, but Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood and Bob Ross were in mind as well. We admired the relaxed pace of these shows. Anti-anxiety focused. A video Xanax if you will.” – Ross Harris
“Huell Howser was the inspiration for his unrelenting enthusiasm and oafish charm. I wanted to converse and jam with people that I find special in the vast landscape of LA. There’s a lot of superficiality here, but once you find the right people, it really is golden.” – John Carroll Kirby
