So here we are now, 10 years and three studio albums into the Wynntown Marshals’ career. The Edinburgh band that The Herald called “the best Americana band NOT from North America” couldn’t let their tenth anniversary slip past without some celebration, and they have chosen to mark a decade together with the release of a new album entitled “After All These Years” and another of their legendary headline shows at the Voodoo Rooms, of course!
Although primarily a retrospective look back at some of the recorded highlights of the past ten years, the 16-track collection, which is released on 1st September 2017, also includes 3 new, previously unreleased tracks to signpost the direction for the next chapters in the band’s history.
Join the Marshals in the beautiful Ballroom to participate in their celebrations as they mark a decade at the forefront of UK Americana and launch their career-spanning compilation album. This show also marks the hometown debut for their brand new line-up following the addition of new drummer Simon Walker and bassist David McKee.
Opening the show is a fantastic young singer-songwriter from Edinburgh, Roseanne Reid. Daughter of The Proclaimers’ Craig, Roseanne has proven that she hasn’t needed to lean on her father’s success for a ‘leg up’ in the music business. She was a finalist in 2016’s BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards — making it to the last four – and has been invited back on a scholarship to country legend Steve Earle’s Copperhead Camp songwriting workshops in the Catskills Mountains at the host’s special request this year after having impressed him so much on a previous visit.
This is shaping up to be a very special night of music which will make all Scots proud of the talent they have on their doorstep.
