1 Summerhall, EH9 1PL Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Three of Scotland’s leading singer/songwriters on tour together, on stage together…

For this special performance, all three will be on-stage throughout, sharing and joining in on each other’s songs, having a laugh and a blether, performing two sets of 1hr and 1hr 15mins.

A popular figure in the contemporary music world and integral member of the much lauded and hugely influential Fence Collective (King Creosote, Pictish Trail, Beta Band etc), James’ style shows a mastery of folk traditions, often drawing on traditional songs, which has seen him collaborate with such heritage artists as the Waterson family, Martin Carthy and the late Bert Jansch, whilst producing his own albums alongside artists such as Four Tet, Rustin Man and Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip).

Drever’s voice and guitar is a part of the backbone of today’s contemporary roots and folk scene. Hugely admired as a solo artist, collaborator, and member of folk superstars Lau, he is a phenomenal and prolific artist.

Over the past few years Withered Hand – aka Edinburgh DIY folk-rock troubadour Dan Willson – has released two outstanding albums, seen several of his songs picked up on MTV and cult series ‘Skins’, and gained an unlikely legion of fans including Jarvis Cocker and Rolling Stone Magazine USA (who decreed him “Artist to Watch”).
