Yesterday, I posted a cracking video from Ross Ainslie, Jarlath Henderson and Ali Hutton performing at the Tolbooth in Stirling as part of The Visit 2016, a Showcase Scotland Expo that hopefully results in more bookings for those artists abroad. Another favourite that showcased their music was Yorkston Thorne Khan, here they are performing Sufi Song:
I’ve no idea if the Sallent de Gállego tour date was a result of the Expo, but if it was then that’s an early win. Yorkston Thorne Khan are also touring Ireland in August with support from Seamus Fogarty for all those dates. You can also catch them at this year’s Edinburgh International Festival with support from Irish singer Lisa O’Neill.
