Tae Sup Wi’ A Fifer

Delighted to announce that this Autumn I’ll be curating and hosting a series of ‘Tae Sup Wi’ A Fifer’ concerts at the Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy. The idea behind Tae Sup is quite simple – we’re putting together well-kent faces, folk I’ve met on my musical travels, old friends – just making interesting, entertaining and unusual evenings. The first three line-ups are up and announced now – details below or go to  www.taesup.co.uk for the whole thing…

Yorkston Thorne Khan shows – May 2015

I am most looking forward to this. The last Yorkston Thorne Khan tour was great fun on and off-stage and getting us all back together again was long overdue. Immediately afterwards we’re in the studio – what could be better?

“Playing together as Yorkston / Thorne / Khan, we tackle a wide array of different sounds and songs. Alongside pieces of our own, there’s a fair chunk of improvisation, plus traditional songs from Scotland and India. Jon’s jazz back-ground definitely comes to the fore, as does Suhail’s devotional singing and outstanding sarangi playing. I just do my best to keep up…”
