[GIG] Triptych: Candi Staton + Giles Walker @ The Tunnels


Recommended Posts

Candi Staton

I love you all! Youre beautiful! cried Candi Staton at Triptych 05: it was her first-ever live appearance in Scotland, and a rapturous performance from one of popular musics brightest stars.

Statons divine alliance of raw sensuality, husky blues and heartbreaking ardour has reigned for over 40 years. A former gospel singer who toured with Aretha, before taking disco by storm with the irrepressible Young Hearts Run Free, Statons ecstatic soul catalogue was chronicled by Honest Jons in 2004; and her indie credentials recently soared thanks to His Hands (2006) a celestial collection of country, blues and R&B whose collaborators included Will Oldham, and Lambchops Mark Nevers. Her timeless union with the Source, meanwhile on the euphoric You Got The Love, remains a devastating dance-floor classic.

To celebrate our final fling, the much-loved Statons return sojourn will guarantee a roof-raising, breathtaking and very possibly tear-jerking farewell from Triptych.
