Aidan Moffat is to embark on a musical road trip around Scotland with some of the country’s top artists in tow.
Along with award-winning film-maker Paul Fegan, Moffat’s exploration of Scotland’s musical and storytelling traditions, ‘Where You’re Meant To Be’ will tour the country in April and May, and become the subject for a feature documentary to premiere after the close of the Commonwealth Games, in late August.
The all-star band will include The Twilight Sad’s James Graham on vocals, Bdy_Prts’ (and former Arab Strap collaborator) Jenny Reeve on violin, vocals,and long-standing musical cohort and Stevie Jones on double-bass and guitar.
The shows will be (loosely) based around traditional ceilidh gatherings, with poems, stories and songs forming evenings which will also feature “bothy balladeers” Geordie Murison and Joe Aitken, Wounded Knee, and folk scene legend Sheila Stewart, coming out of retirement to duet with Moffat.
The free shows are ‘selling out’ fast, details at www.aidanmoffat.co.uk/wymtb.
