Three of Scotland’s leading singer/songwriters on tour together, on stage together…
For this special performance, all three will be on-stage throughout, sharing and joining in on each other’s songs, having a laugh and a blether, performing two sets of 1hr and 1hr 15mins.
A popular figure in the contemporary music world and integral member of the much lauded and hugely influential Fence Collective (King Creosote, Pictish Trail, Beta Band etc), James’ style shows a mastery of folk traditions, often drawing on traditional songs, which has seen him collaborate with such heritage artists as the Waterson family, Martin Carthy and the late Bert Jansch, whilst producing his own albums alongside artists such as Four Tet, Rustin Man and Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip).
Drever’s voice and guitar is a part of the backbone of today’s contemporary roots and folk scene. Hugely admired as a solo artist, collaborator, and member of folk superstars Lau, he is a phenomenal and prolific artist.
Over the past few years Withered Hand – aka Edinburgh DIY folk-rock troubadour Dan Willson – has released two outstanding albums, seen several of his songs picked up on MTV and cult series ‘Skins’, and gained an unlikely legion of fans including Jarvis Cocker and Rolling Stone Magazine USA (who decreed him “Artist to Watch”).
Few in the field of explorative ambient music have remained as questing and unclassifiable as Canadian composer Tim Hecker. Across his 15-year career he has moved through shades of reflective electronic noise, experiential sound design, and modern composition with a deft and distinguished touch.
Forget folklore, and get ready for intense urban sounds straight from Athens Greece by a 7-piece band including the two brothers, a soaring female vocalist, a crowd engaging MC and three virtuosi on the bouzouki, saxophone and el. guitar, that have succeeded in getting audiences all around the world to their feet!
Portland, Oregon-based duo of Spencer Doran and Ryan Carlile are the open-source musical entity known as Visible Cloaks, whose debut album Reassemblage beams to the world via RVNG in February 2017.
