For July's Tae Sup Wi A Fifer, a club night hosted and programmed by one of Fife's finest, joining James Yorkston at the Byre are [wait for it]… Gruff Rhys, Salena Godden and Brìghde Chaimbeul.
Now with live music back again at last, Tae Sup wi' A Fifer returns with its unique mix of folk, rock, indie and spoken word from some of the most interesting artists in Scotland today, all hosted by James.
Get to know the artists…
Gruff Rhys is a Welsh musician, composer, producer, filmmaker and author. His new solo album Seeking New Gods sees the Super Furry Animal mythologise his a compelling sonic mountain of his own making.
Salena Godden is one of Britain's best loved poets and performers. She is also an activist, broadcaster, memoirist and essayist and is widely anthologised. She has published several volumes of poetry, the latest of which was Pessimism is for Lightweights, and a literary childhood memoir, Springfield Road.
Winner of the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award, Brìghde Chaimbeul is making a mark on the global stage. A native Gaelic speaker, her style is rooted in her language and culture, but draws inspiration from a variety of global piping traditions such as those from Eastern Europe, Cape Breton and Ireland.
In September, James will be joined by Kathyrn Joseph, whose debut, Bones You Have Thrown Me and Blood I've Spilled, won the Scottish Album of the Year back in 2015; Josie Long, trailblazer of the UK comedy industry and the first woman to be nominated three times for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award; and Jeffrey Lewis, indie-rock songwriter and comix artist.
