James Yorkston Presents: Tae Sup Wi' A Fifer: Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai) /Bell Lungs/Gwenifer Raymond
Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai)
Stuart is the guitarist and de facto frontman of Scottish post-rock legends Mogwai. This visit to Fife will see Stuart performing an incredibly rare solo guitar set.
Celestial drones, mesmerising vocals and glitchy electronics from experimental dream pop musician Bell Lungs. Fiercely DIY, this one-woman powerhouse from Scotland has been touring perpetually for the past few years across the UK, Europe and USA, her striking voice appearing on the airwaves of BBC Radio 3, 4 and 6.
Gwenifer began playing guitar at the age of 5 and after years of playing around the Welsh valleys in various punk outfits she began listening more to pre-war blues musicians as well as Appalachian folk players, eventually leading into the guitar players of the American Primitive genre.
