Yorkston/Thorne/Khan

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan is a new collaborative experimental group: Scottish folk singer-songwriter James Yorkston; award-winning New Delhi sarangi player and Indian classical singer Suhail Yusuf Khan; and jazz bassist Jon Thorne, best known for his work with electro band Lamb.

The trio bring together mournful northern lyricism, Indian classicism and jazzy basslines in an indie-folk world music for the 21st century. Their debut album Everything Sacred, released earlier this year, was praised for its brave originality and contemplative spirituality.

Playing guitar, nyckelharpa, Indian sarangi and bass, the trio tackle a wide range of different sounds and songs, from covers of Ivor Cutler and Lal Waterson, through traditional tunes from Scotland and India, through to jazz and devotional singing.

For this performance they are joined by distinctive young Irish singer Lisa O’Neill.
