The James Yorkston Christmas show returns to Union Chapel on 20 December, with special guests Pictish Trail and Withered Hand.
Earlier this year, although it seems years ago now, myself, Pictish Trail and Withered Hand underwent a tour of Scotland (mostly), playing as a trio. Thus:
Three original songwriters, one perfect venue and a (Christmas) spirit of good-humoured collaboration. Onstage as a trio throughout, swapping songs and stories, harmonies and dodgy nyckelharpa solos.
You know what? It was amazing. Great, great fun. We learned each other’s songs and played and sang along. As such, this line-up was the PERFECT choice for me how to end the year. I’ll open the Union Chapel evening with a short solo set and then we’ll have two further, longer, sets by us as a trio. There’s plenty of everyone’s music played plus a few well-dooked covers. - James Yorkston
