In amongst all the bands (Idlewild, Broken Records) and comedians, they have a date with the Kelso Tait Hall.

Here’s the press ad from the Sunday Mail – who this week, have managed to get the date and venue correct.

Originally hailing from Orkney, off the north coast of Scotland, Kris Drever cut his teeth on the Edinburgh traditional music scene in the late 1990s. The son of Ivan Drever, (of Celtic rockers, Wolfstone), Kris has picked up plenty of praise for his work with ‘Britfolk supergroup’, Lau, and his wonderful solo debut ‘Black Water’ made him a deserving winner of the BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award in 2007.

Here, on his single ‘Poor Man’s Son’ he is joined by Eddi Reader, Frank Reader and Roddie Woomble (Idlewild), who all provide harmony vocals.

Track down his album – you don’t have to be a folkie to enjoy it.
