Synopsis

Venue: Main Bar

Join Boo Hewerdine and Yvonne Lyon for a close and personal performance in the Main Bar.

Boo Hewerdine –

Boo is renowned for his ideas and innovation, for new ways of recording and bringing projects to completion. Formerly the lead singer and creative force behind The Bible, formed in the 1980s, and reformed in 1994, he has gone on to a successful solo career. Performing songs from his new album 'Before', hear a perfect contrast of mood and theme to the gloriously rich, full band pop sound of 2017's acclaimed 'Swimming in Mercury' album.

“Simple, poetic reflections on life and love” The Guardian

“One of the country's most consistently admired songwriters' Folk Radio UK

"If I could write books that sounded like this, I'd be...maybe not happy, but very, very fulfilled" Nick Hornby, author of Fever Pitch and High Fidelity

Yvonne Lyon –

Yvonne Lyon primarily plays an acoustic folk music sound with roots, rock and folk rock elements. She was part of the Glasgow-based band, Land, from 1997 until 2000 and has since enjoyed a long solo career. She has just had a 4th album in a row as Record of the week on BBC Scotland. She has also performed live on BBC radio with Bob Harris, Claire Balding Michael Ball and Janice Long; has toured with Eddi Reader, and supported Bela Fleck, Boo Hewerdine and Chris Difford.
