John McCusker, Scotland’s foremost fiddle player, gathers a who’s who of singer songwriters and traditional musicians for one night only on The Queen’s Hall stage.
An impressive and carefully selected ‘house band’ of Celtic musicians will be joined by an exciting line-up of guests. They’ll perform their best known songs, classics and some traditional gems in a unique live collaboration.
John said when initially asked to curate this show in 2019, 'It was more than 27 years ago that I played my first gig with The Battlefield Band at The Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh as part of the Fringe Festival. It holds such a special place in my heart. So special that when I was asked to curate Southside Of The Tracks – a show to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the hall – I jumped at the chance.'
John McCusker, James Mackintosh, Ian Carr, Ewen Vernal, Michael McGoldrick, Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow), Phil Cunningham.
Guests confirmed so far:
Julie Fowlis, Kris Drever, Ye Vagabonds (Ireland), Drever McCusker Woomble, Kitty Macfarlane (Somerset) and Sofia Karlsson (Sweden).
More special guests to be announced. Don’t delay, tickets will fly out for this one.
Presented by The Queen’s Hall.
