James Yorkston Presents: Tae Sup Wi' A Fifer: Scott Hutchison (frightened Rabbit) / Serafina Steer / Alasdair Roberts
Tae Sup wi’ a Fifer – Hosted and programmed by East Neuk songwriter & author James Yorkston.
Scott Hutchison (Frightened Rabbit):
Scott Hutchison is the lead singer of Scottish indie-rock band Frightened Rabbit, though he occasionally steps out of the woods to perform as Owl John. He has been making music with Frightened Rabbit for over a decade and the band have released five albums during that time.
Frightened Rabbit initially began as a solo project in 2004, with Scott writing songs whilst living in his brother's cupboard, playing occasional shows around Glasgow. He now lives in a normal-sized flat and plays a lot more shows than he used to. We are delighted to have him perform a rare solo show at Tae Sup wi’ a Fifer.
“The sheer quality and array of styles found on Owl John's self-titled debut is testament to the prolific song writing skills of Scott Hutchison.” - ALLMUSIC
Serafina Steer is a fascinating and unique singer / songwriter. As a classically trained harpist, she works in contemporary, improvised, collaborative and pop projects, including Bas Jan, her all-female post-punk-esque trio.
“Steer is an astringent, droll, sometimes touching narrator; it's easy to hear why Jarvis Cocker was so bewitched.” – MOJO
“The Moths Are Real is a crisp and atmospheric set of idiosyncratic and finely crafted pop songs” – The Wire
Alasdair Roberts is a songwriter/composer, singer and acoustic fingerstyle guitarist as well as an interpreter/arranger of traditional songs and ballads from Scotland and beyond. Alasdair is one of a rare breed of musicians whose work has found favour with aficionados of both experimental/avant-garde music and traditional/folk music – as such, he has been the cover star of both Wire Magazine and fRoots Magazine.
'One of our most talented, important and relevant songwriters and song-adapters.' - Folk Radio UK
'Quietly escalating towards Scottish national treasure status' – Mojo
'An artist in consummate control of his art' - Uncut
