Heidi Talbot and John McCusker

Thu 14 June


£16, £14, £6 under 15s

After 10 years of marriage, touring the world in each other’s bands, writing songs together and recording on each other’s solo albums, this year Heidi and John are celebrating recording their first collaborative EP by touring as a duo for the first time.

Between them they have shared the stage with among others – Paul Weller, Mark Knopfler, Alison Krauss, James Taylor, Teenage Fanclub, Graham Coxon, Eddi Reader, King Creosote, Tim O’Brien and Jerry Douglas.

John has long been renowned for his skill in transcending musical boundaries: striving to keep his music fresh and exciting though never leaving the past behind. He has won the coveted BBC Radio 2 Musician of the Year Award and also The Spirit of Scotland Award for Music (twice).  In 2016 he received the Good Tradition Award and performed with his band at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards at The Royal Albert Hall. Over the past ten years Heidi has performed all over the world as a solo artist and with the group Cherish The Ladies. She has been nominated for Folk Singer of the year and Best Traditional Song by BBC Radio 2, Best Live Act by the Scottish Traditional Music Awards and Best Female Vocalist at The Irish Music Awards.

“One of the UK’s most gifted and versatile musicians in any genre, John McCusker is equally in demand as a multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer”. The Guardian

 “Simply vocal heaven” The Sunday Times

“A voice that’s both awestruck and tender” The New York Times
