JAMES YORKSTON + ADAM ROSS (RANDOLPH'S LEAP) + ASHLEY JAMES - PLEASE NOTE THIS SHOW IS NOW AT THE FULFORD ARMS, FULFORD ROAD, YORK YO10 4EX

JAMES YORKSTON is pleased to announce details of new album, ‘The Cellardyke Recording And Wassailing Society’, produced by Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip) feat. KT Tunstall and The Pictish Trail, on 18th August 2014 through Domino.

This is James at his most personal and reflective since I Was A Cat From A Book (2012), with a brilliant set of musicians, and a connection with the intimacy of his home-town life and the camaraderie of good friends.  It is Yorkston’s fullest body of work so far.

A native of Fife, James Yorkston was an integral early member of the Fence Collective whose reach across contemporary music continues to lengthen: King Creosote, The Aliens, KT Tunstall, The Beta Band and The Pictish Trail.

Primarily a singer-songwriter, he also tackles a variety of traditional songs, learned from singers such as Anne Briggs, Dick Gaughan, Martin Carthy and Lal Waterson

Ten years ago there was only John Peel to test new material and, upon hearing debut Moving Up Country, he instantly invited James to session for him. As a result, the legendary Bert Jansch hosted James’ first ever solo show and John Martyn invited the then unsigned Yorkston to tour with him - a rare event indeed.

James Yorkston has an impressive back catalogue, processing an emotional acuity that gently dismantles all resistance. From the little, life-changing epiphanies detailed on Just Beyond The River (2004), the minimal, midsummer memoirs of The Year Of The Leopard (2006) to the stellar musical leap represented by When The Haar Rolls In (2008) and 2009's collaboration with The Big Eyes Family Players, Folk Songs, a conscious embracing of folk traditions.

"It's a peculiar thing, being a songwriter, but also being a reasonably private person,” says James, "There are certain songs that you write, and the only way that you even allow yourself to write them is by telling yourself that, once they're written, no-one else will ever hear them. You write them to get through a moment.”
