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.http://www.myspace.com/pictishtrailhttp://www.fencerecords.comZIGGY CAMPBELLZiggy Campbell was brought up in Hawick.

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.http://www.myspace.com/jofostersongs Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
