Some September news

Over the next couple of weeks I'll be working with long time collaborator Sara Kazmi (vocals) and new friends Rakae Jamil (sitar), Adam Stearns (keys, vocals) and Hardeep Deerhe (tabla) to create some new music rooted in Scottish and South Asian folk traditions. We'll be based at the Glad Cafe, delivering workshops in local schools and playing two gigs on 17th and 18th September. More information available soon!

24th September sees a rare live outing for my solo album, Woven. The mighty six piece band and I will be performing it in full at the Queen's Hall, Edinburgh, supporting The Shee at the launch of their new record, Continuum.

Very excitingly I've found myself in the house band for Running Up That Hill: A Celebration Of The Work Of Kate Bush (25th September, His Majesty's Theatre, Aberdeen). Curated by Emma Pollock, with a whole host of star guest singers: Kathryn Williams, Karine Polwart, Kathryn Joseph, Rachel Sermanni, James Graham, Peter Brewis, Roddy Hart and Emma herself.
