James Yorkston has announced another series of his Tae Sup wi’ a Fifer series – the live music showcases which see the Fife-based singer-songwriter inviting guests each month to the Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy.

However, a couple of non-Fife shows are also in the calendar, including one on Monday August 27th as part of the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

This free event will feature music from Sheena Wellington, Richard Dawson and poetry readings from Jamaica’s poet laureate Lorna Goodison, poet and novelist Jeet Thayil, and also an appearance from ‘supergroup’ Yorkston Thorne Khan.

The supping then continues on Friday 7th September, back in Kirkcaldy, with Martin Carr out of the Boo Radleys, plus Emma Pollock and Rachel Sermanni. The same lineup also appears two days later – at Dunfermline’s Outwith Festival.

Further ‘regular’ Kirkcaldy shows include Justin Currie, Nell Ní Chróinín and Brigid Mae Power on October 20th, while on November 17th, it’s Roddy Woomble, Archie Fisher and Laura Moody.

The final Sup of 2018 is on December 15th, with guests Vashti Bunyan, Audiobooks, and Michael Pedersen.
