Aidan O'Rourke, Kit Downes & James Robertson

- (Doors: 7pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

Two of the UK’s leading folk and jazz musicians join forces with one of Scotland’s most celebrated authors for ‘365’: an evocative and bravely original collaboration combining words and music with the disarming drama of stripped-back storytelling.

This show is about old myths, folk legends, everyday lives, hard truths, tender tales, the alchemic power of words and music. Robertson’s short stories are tiny masterpieces told with heroic concision, and he reads them with gentle gravitas. O’Rourke’s fiddle – deeply rooted in the tradition and spun with off-kilter lyricism – taps into the atmosphere. Pianist/harmonium player Kit Downes adds bold and kaleidoscopic harmonies.
