Tae Sup wi' a Fifer presents: JAMES YORKSTON, WITHERED HAND and KRIS DREVER
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
THIS IS A LIVESTREAMED SHOW
The highly acclaimed Tae Sup wi' a Fifer series of gigs is curated by James Yorkston.
Following the success of their October live streamed show, December 11th sees our favourite trio reunite once more for some seasonal cheer.
All in the same room, yet at a safe but social distance, the boys will be collaborating instrumentally throughout, swapping songs, lending harmonies and telling stories.
“With Tae Sup wi’ a Fifer, I just try and mix things up, keeping the line-ups interesting, not one particular genre or theme to a night… A lot of the people I ask to play are friends who I’ve known for years, or just people I’ve met on the road whose music has taken to me. It’s a’ braw though, and when programming Tae Sup, I just think Who would I like to see? and work from there…” – James Yorkston

Join us for a magical evening of music
'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.
