Experimental Batch #26 : James Yorkston + Jon Thorne + Suhail Yusaf Khan
In 2012, Dewar's hosted an experiment. Musicians from India and the UK were placed in a makeshift recording studio in Edinburgh for a week and asked to come up with an album of original songs. King Creosote, Suhail Yusuf Khan, The Pictish Trail, Slow Club, Found, James Yorkston, Raghu Dixit and others came and went, collaborating and creating with those they met. The results are rather special.
In the spirit of that album, three of those acts are on tour together for the first time, playing together as a trio and performing a mixture of Indian classical, Jazz and contemporary folk music, alongside their own compositions.

'A thousand times more haunting than anything the New Acoustic Movement ever dreamed of' said the NME. Indeed Scottish musician James Yorkston's music is haunting, but there is something else in his music which lifts him above the average acoustic singer/songwriter. At times he sounds like a rat-pack crooner, the next like a scottish balladeer, and just when he's got down to his quietest, most fragile moment he'll break into one of the loudest acoustic guitar intervals you're likely to hear. James Yorkston is diversity at it's best, with all the quality of tradition and excitement of the new.
