Adventfest at St James, Leith is proud to present
RORY BUTLER & BAND
Rory Butler is a singer with principals, standards, a fresh outlook on modern singer-songwriting and an unwavering vision of how he wants it portrayed. Stark and simple, comic and confrontational, raw and radiant. To whet your whistles, check out the videos on our website - but really, you need to be in the room to completely get it. It's like watching a young Jackson Browne pouring out his heart and humour in a thick Scottish lilt while John Martyn and Nick Drake scatter woody, earthy chords. Rory is the artist equivalent of 200 gram vinyl, Linn turntable, and Naim amp. High Res beauty in both voice and playing. His first single, Black and Blue has had 750,000 plays on Spotify and in recent times he has shared the stage with the likes of Richard Thompson, I’m With Her, John Paul White (Civil Wars) and Sarah Jarosz (at Celtic Connections 2018).
