Tae Sup Wi’ A Fifer is a club night hosted and programmed by Domino Records' recording artist James Yorkston, based at the Adam Smith Theatre, Kirkcaldy in Fife, Scotland. During the pandemic it transformed into a series of online shows. Now, with live music back again at last, Tae Sup returns – and takes to the road, as a series of tours of intimate venues around Scotland starring three varied and complementary talents from different global avenues of folk, rock, indie and spoken word, all hosted by James.

and James Yorkston

Growing up in the village of Kingsbarns in Fife, James has been releasing a series of much acclaimed albums on Domino Records since 2002 – His debut album ‘Moving Up Country’ was ‘Rough Trade Album of the Year’. James is an integral original member of the much lauded and hugely influential Fence Collective (King Creosote, Pictish Trail, Beta Band etc) and his style shows a mastery of folk traditions, often drawing on traditional songs, which has seen him collaborate with such heritage artists as the Waterson family, Martin Carthy and the late Bert Jansch, whilst producing his own albums alongside contemporary artists such as Four Tet, Rustin Man, David Wrench, KT Tunstall and Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip). He has toured his music all over Europe & North America.
