Sacred Paws

Secret Courtyard

Sacred Paws don’t take things too seriously. You can hear it all the way through a conversation with its two members, guitarist Rachel Aggs and drummer Eilidh Rodgers, punctuated by rolls of giggles and thoughtful pauses, and you can hear it in the light touch they bring to their music. The Glasgow-based band bring that fun and light touch to Summerhall, performing songs from SAY Award-winning album Strike a Match and acclaimed follow-up Run Around The Sun, which showcase their unique blend of shimmering guitar riffs, snappy beats and swooning melodies.

In Pashyanti [Sanskrit: the junction point between the ordinary waking state and pure consciousness] Simon explores every facet of the instrument, from ‘shimmering, fluttering delicacy’ (List) and ‘shifting rhythmic complexity’ (Songlines), to ‘primal, multi-layered sounds’ (Caleidoscope). ‘Punjabi folk song, flamenco and Sephardic music, Sanskrit alchemy and Gaelic folklore… they all seem grist to the mill for Simon Thacker’ (Scotsman).
