The Pictish Train in Concert

The Hothouse, Morecambe LA3 1QT

The Pictish Trail returns with eloquent songs which are as wildly varied as his selection of brightly coloured bobble hats and have seen him get mentioned in the same breath as his heroes Beck,The Beta Band and Hot Chip. His extraordinary vocals reveal hidden depths and have been accompanied by everything from acoustic guitar to a full-on four piece metal band to throbbing dance beats and samples, and often during the course of the same gig.

A self-styled "intimate yuletide Eigg-nog of Hebridean Casio folk, with stripped back, twisted and blissed out regurgitations of ol’ Pictish Trail favourites” the gig will feature Johnny performing as a three-piece together with multi-instrumentalists Suse Bear (Tuff Love) and John B. McKenna from Monoganon, who is also the supporting act.

Pictish Trail's third album Future Echoes earned ★★★★ reviews from MOJO, Uncut, Clash, The Arts Desk and The Scotsman among others. Their bonkers epic video for the track ‘After Life’ was hailed by The Guardian as "a warped myriad of apocalyptic symbolism... brilliant”.
