Drever McCusker Woomble are a folk supergroup who are reuniting in 2018 to mark the tenth anniversary of their album Before the Ruin. For what is one of their only non-festival shows of the year, the band – featuring Kris Drever, singer and guitarist with LAU, Idlewild frontman Roddy Woomble and one of Scotland’s foremost fiddlers, John McCusker – will be joined on percussion by Admiral Fallow frontman Louis Abbott as they play the 2008 LP in full, as well as delving into each other’s back catalogues.
They are teaming up with one of Shetland’s Americana favourites, Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards, for a double bill. Laura and her band previously wooed audiences at Shetland Folk Festival and then at Mareel last summer, and are back in support of their brilliant new album California Calling hot on the heels of some acclaimed shows at this year’s Celtic Connections.
Both artists will perform a full set.
