THE PICTISH TRAIL with THE FENCE COLLECTIVE featuring King Creosote, James Yorkston and Richarrd Colburn from Belle & Sebastian

The Picts lived in north and east Scotland in the 3rd to 9th centuries AD. We know little of their history as very few records survive. Today, Johnny Lynch resides in the East Neuk of Fife and runs Fence Records with Kenny Anderson. His recorded output to date as The Pictish Trail is SOLD OUT.

Normally, The Pictish Trail has a penchant for madcap folky nonsense, soft melodic meandering, and custard creams. Here, he takes the weird and wonderful Fence Collective out with him on tour to carry his guitars and make him tea. Currently comprising of King Creosote, James Yorkston, OnTheFly, Uncle Beesly and Captain Geeko this band will blow your preconceptions of Fence being folk out of the water.

ZIGGY CAMPBELL

Ziggy Campbell was brought up in Hawick. His father wasnt a butcher and he never had the brow for rugby so he wrote songs instead. He formed hi-tech lo-fi pop experimentalists FOUND in 2005.

A label called FENCE RECORDS decided they liked FOUND and wanted to release their latest album. Johnny who runs FENCE said that Ziggy was a truly unique voice and a songwriter with fresh ideas.

These fresh ideas include developing a sideline solo project which is being unwrapped with staggering effect and never FOUND wanting...

JO FOSTER

Jo Foster, painter potter and piano player, writes melody-strong songs which she sings to piano or guitar or whatever is at hand. Her diy approach has been a fave of The Fence Collective where she made a kind of debut at their annual Homegame, finally taking her songs to the stage.

She has recently toured as support for The Aliens and is probably best known for writing 'Oh Catherine' which she recorded for Lone Pigeon's debut album Concubine Rice. Lately, shows have seen Jo on stage with additional musicians as her songs lend themselves to a harmony rich sound as well as the intimate experience her solo shows bring. Interesting Music regulars will remember her outstanding performance at the Ivor Cutler tribute in January.

It's all quite exciting really. A band getting somewhere that at least started their life in Aberdeen. About as good as we have had in recent history:up:

Very nice night. Enjoyed Jo Foster on the guitar tunes, a gorgeous voice. Ziggy was, well, super good and surely not long now till he gets the acclaim he deserves. It's just a joy to watch someone that talented constantly step out of his comfort zone and push his own ability. Pictish Trail were very good. Not really my cuppa but quite a few special moments. The biggest applause of the night should probably go to the audience for being there for the music. A rare treat at an IMP gig in The Tunnels.:up::up::up:

And as always big round of applause for Graeme, Mark, Mike and Jenny!:love:

Thanks for the good vibes Jim.

Really good night. Jo was super nervous beforehand, but managed to charm her way through the set. Such a sweet voice.

Ziggy pushed all my buttons once more. Great songwriting, great voice, great presence, great innovation.

PT said it was the best PT gig ever. That says it all really...I hope no one was expecting a folky fence gig!

Thanks to all who came out. Always much appreciated.
