John McCusker is an outstanding Scottish multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer long renowned for his skill at transcending musical boundaries, sharing stages with Bonnie Raitt, Steve Earle, Paolo Nutini, Eddi Reader and Jools Holland, and featuring on recordings by Mark Knopfler, Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene and Teenage Fanclub.

Subtlety is Heidi Talbot’s magic ingredient. From her gossamer voice to the delicate re-working of traditional and contemporary material that have earned her rave reviews for her recordings and live performances. . The girl from Co. Kildare, who spent several years in New York, slips effortlessly between musical worlds but retains a personal modesty rooted in traditional folk.

Innerleithen Music Festival runs 18-20 August – see www.innerleithenmusicfestival.com
