Never miss another 'Pictish Trail' show
Fence Records Presents: Pictish Trail + Eagleowl + Josie Long
Josie will do 2 stand up sets, introduce band sets from The Pictish Trail and Eagleowl and will also be programming all the music during the bits when you're waiting around.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Experimental folk-pop from one-man band Pictish Trail, aka Johnny Lynch. Fusing home-made electronica with DIY instrumentation, Pictish Trail's music is simple, sweet and instantly seductive. '… this is the sound of Scotland quietly floating far, far out to some deep enchanting waters. And never dreaming of floating back.' - Domino

Eagleowl are a lo-fi post folk ensemble from Edinburgh, Scotland. Eagleowl believe in doing things right, rather than doing things fast. They notorious for taking things at their own pace. Releasing only two gorgeous EPs and one 7” single in their six year career thus far, they’ve earned the title of Scotland’s premier slowcore quartet. "Delicious bit of lo-fi post folk what comes charmingly wrapped in hand-made loveliness." - Wendy Roby, Drowned In Sound
Eagleowl tour dates
Claiming her first BBC Comedy Award by the age of 17, Josie returned to performing after finishing University, notably at the Edinburgh Fringe, where she carried on winning awards for 'Kindness and Exuberance' (Best Newcomer) and later in 2007/8 for 'Trying Is Good'.
She regularly writes for The Guardian and has appeared on The Island (Channel 4), The Superhuman’s Show (Channel 4), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and Dara O’Briain’s Go 8 Bit.
The Telegraph have described her as 'one of the most exciting female comics around'. Josie's humour is warm, optimistic and endearing, filled with rambling daft tales and all the things she likes in the world and which cheer her up.
'An original and unflagging spirit, oozing enthusiasm and intellect… Long builds delightful comedy worlds' (The Times)
'An absolute delight' (Time Out)
'An original and unflagging spirit... A passion for ideas and creativity... this is a lovely show' (The Guardian).
