A free show during the festival. That's not awful.
In association with Avalanche Records and Rough Cut Nation
Emily Scott will be launching her new album ABCDEFG...etc through Aufgerladen und Bereit Records. Boomkat sez this about it:"The DIY ethic is carried over into the music itself, which was recorded "at the fireside" of former Incredible String Band member Macolm Le Maistre, and is always coloured by a homespun intimacy. Scott's voice transcends Scot-folk conventions, incorporating hints at skiffle, music hall crooning and more than a small amount of Leslie Feist. There must be more than a dozen or so dulcet acoustic albums of this ilk released per week, but Scott's effervescent delivery and quietly magical arrangements (e.g. the combination of vocal harmonising, sparse piano and shimmering bells on opener 'Downriver') set this one apart."
Plus bandmate and collaborater Rob St.John playing lo-fi creaks and drones from 5pm.
The Scotsman gave it the gig of the week:
"We're always harping on about Rob St John's elegiac mastery here at UtR so this being our gig of the week shouldn't come as much surprise. But the added bonus of Emily Scott's sumptuous tones and the National Portrait Gallery's refined setting transcends this unique showing into a glorious can't be missed extravaganza."
