Acoustic Edinburgh – 6th Feb – Gary Stewart Headline
AE is back on our new bi-monthly schedule with a welcome return headline set from Gary Stewart.
Gary did a short set for us last year promoting his brand new album “Mr. Gary Stewart and the Tin Foil Collective” and we’re delighted to get him back for a full headline set.
Now based in Leeds, the Perthshire boy caught the attention and imagination of traditional and modern music lovers up and down the U.K with the release of his Debut Album, “Boy Cries Wolf” (featuring performances from Ellen Smith (Ellen and the Escapades) and Rosie Doonan (Radio 2 Folk Award nominee/Rosie Doonan + Ben Murray/Peter Gabriel). The album picked up support from R2 and Maverick as well as radio 2’s Steve Lamacq.
The Scottish songsmith is influenced by the singer/songwriters of the ’60s including James Taylor, Carole King, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and most predominantly, Paul Simon. Stewart also cites Scottish Nu-Folkies as an influence, including King Creosote, James Yorkston, Admiral Fallow and Rachel Sermanni to name a few.
“Sparking off British and American folk traditions alike, you’d be hard pressed to pin any of this breathtaking music to a specific time or place. Like all the greatest folk songs, they shoot for timelessness and split the arrow right through the bullseye…”Simon Moore-Live4Ever
