at The Queen's Hall
6.30pm Doors Open
7.30pm Jo Mango
9.40pm Randolph’s Leap
All timings are subject to change.
Randolph’s Leap are currently making pioneering moves into genres like pop-scotch, drip-hop and windy-rock, and write songs which usually feature more instruments than they do chords. February 2012 saw the release of an album of home recordings, Randolph’s Leap & The Curse of the Haunted Headphones, on limited edition neon cassette by Peenko Records.
“funny, poignant acoustic arias” (The List)
“emotional accessibility and sheer likeability” (Song By Toad).
Members of Snowgoose appearing tonight are Jim McCulloch on guitar, Anna Sheard on vocals, Dave McGowan on bass and Stu Kidd on drums. The band members all share a passion for 1960s British folk music and West Coast American sounds which shines on their debut album Harmony Springs. This album was one of novelist Ian Rankin's top 10 albums of 2012 as well as making the top 50 list in The Herald. www.snowgoose.me.uk
It’s safe to say Scottish multi-instrumentalist and singer Jo Mango has had an incredible few years. Since 2007 she has worked with the likes of Vashti Bunyan, David Byrne and Devendra Banhart in venues from New York's Carnegie Hall to a greenhouse in Glasgow and has just completed her second album Murmuration. www.jomango.bandcamp.com
