James Yorkston and Nina Persson

13 October 2023

James Yorkston and Nina Persson will be performing songs from their collaboration with the Second Hand Orchestra, The Great White Sea Eagle, released earlier this year.

Scottish folk artist James Yorkston and Sweden’s The Second Hand Orchestra had no real plans to do a follow up to ‘The Wide, Wide River’ (2021), but as James visited his studio in Cellardyke, Fife every day in early 2021, he began to start writing songs on the piano as opposed to his usual guitar as he gazed upon the sea outside his window. 

After sending the first five or six songs to Karl-Jonas Winqvist (the leader/conductor of TSHO), they began to discuss working on the music together. With Yorkston’s shift from guitar to piano, they thought about what other changes they could make to their process which led to the involvement of a guest singer and the legendary Nina Persson (The Cardigans) was brought into the fold.

Start time: 6.30pm
