WHAT'S ON / James Yorkston plus special guest Kathryn Williams
at The Queen's Hall
Mercury Music Prize nominee Kathryn Williams opens the evening in a special guest appearance. "Without a doubt one of the most authentic folk voices in the country" (Q Magazine)
James Yorkston was the first member of the Fence Collective to emerge from the creative oddity that is the East Neuk of Fife. James’ first solo show was supporting Bert Jansch and his first tour was supporting John Martyn. John Peel, an early supporter, dubbed him: 'the finest songwriter of his generation'. Now 10 years on, James has released five albums, plus a collection of traditional music and published his first book It’s Lovely to be Here - The Touring Diaries of a Scottish Gent.
In August 2012, Domino Records release James' brand new album I Was a Cat from a Book, his first album of new material since 2008's When The Haar Rolls In.
