Welcome to Coffee with a Coastie. We were grateful to have been given the opportunity to chat with David Kirkpatrick. David is an Australian country music artist, born in Rockhampton, Queensland, and the son of Australian country music royalty Joy McKean and the late Slim Dusty. As a child, David spent his first six years on the road, living in a caravan with his family, before going to boarding school and onto a successful career as an emergency medicine doctor, but he has always followed in his family’s footsteps with his love of music. Having been part of a band throughout his medical career and made appearances, with his fine song writing and singing featured on the Slim Dusty Family Reunion album. Now after retiring from medicine in 2019 after nearly 30 years of service at Gosford Private Hospital, David formed the band Two Tone Pony, with their latest single ‘A Life Well Lived’. So it was with great pleasure that I got to sit down and chat with David about life and Two Tone Pony.
