13 Jul James Yorkston: Tae Sup wi’ a Fifer, with Rachel Sermanni, Martin Carr, Emma Pollock
September 9, 2018 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Tae Sup wi’ a Fifer, the eclectic live music showcase curated by Fife-based singer-songwriter James Yorkston, is delighted to announce it’s Dunfermline première.
Tae Sup wi’ a Fifer began in 2015, when James was invited to curate some live music and spoken word nights for the Adam Smith Theatre. Pretty soon the evening developed a reputation for its quality, diverse line-ups and laidback, welcoming nature. There have been sets from The Vaselines, Phillip Selway, Scott Hutchison, Alexis Taylor, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Steve Mason, Dick Gaughan, Karine Polwart, Richard Dawson, Malcolm Middleton, King Creosote, Roddy Woomble, Yorkston Thorne Khan and many more.
“With Tae Sup wi’ a Fifer, I just try and mix things up, keeping the line-ups interesting, not one particular genre or theme to a night… A lot of the people I ask to play are friends who I’ve known for years, or just people I’ve met on the road whose music has taken to me. It’s a’ braw though, and when programming Tae Sup, I just think Who would I like to see? and work from there…” – James YorkstonFeaturing
