Drever, McCusker And Woomble

A collection of some of the best young Scottish musicians come together to bring an astonishing blend of traditional folk and pop music. Playing much from their album ‘Before the Ruin’ as well as pieces from their individual works, the contrast between the mellifluous songs often played with the support of a single guitar from Kris Drever and more upbeat numbers which got the crowd clapping and stomping their feet was stunning. Accompanying backing vocals from Heidi Talbot were terrific, contributing to a highly enjoyable gig from an ensemble similar in sound to Idlewild (probably due to Woomble’s influence) but with a folky edge that seems to be rather fashionable at the moment.
