The Kris Drever band is Kris, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Louis Abbott, stellar double bassist Euan Burton and highly prized jazz singer Rachel Lightbody.
One of Scotland’s finest and most acclaimed songwriters Kris Drever is on the road with his own band – multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Louis Abbott, stellar double bassist and co-producer Euan Burton and highly prized jazz singer Rachel Lightbody.
He says: “nothing comes close to building those invisible cathedrals with my comrades. The excitement of real musical dialogue is overwhelming: the knowledge that something is happening in front of me that can’t ever be exactly replicated is fascinating and frankly, even after 30 years as a musician, miraculous.”
Since the release of his 2020 album “Where The World Is Thin” Kris has been busy collaborating in the studio and playing major shows with Julie Fowlis, Karine Polwart, Sekou Keita and Jackie Morris for their Lost Spell Songs project (Thirty Tigers, 2021), won another BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Original Song, won Album of The Year at the Scots Trad Music Award 2021, duetted with Aoife O’Donovan and toured with Lau and Rachel Baiman
