PAUL VICKERS AND THE LEG

Headlining the night will be 6 piece supergroup Paul Vickers and the Leg playing a set featuring tracks from the upcoming enchanting new opus “Winter at Butterfly Lake”. The group features Scottish indie royalty, In the ranks are cellist Pete Harvey whose moonlighting has included radio favourites King Creosote, Modern Studies and more recently Kristin Hersh of Throwing Muses fame. Leg drummer Alun Scurlock was Withered Hand’s drummer on their first two classic albums and Paul Vickers cut his teeth as front man with Galashiels finest, Dawn of the Replicants. The eccentric band leader is banjo picking demon Dan Mutch who is helped by his long term wingman bass wizard John Mackie and guitar soundscape mop top James Metcalfe of The Chunks. Between them Paul Vickers and the Leg have half a dozen John Peel sessions to their names and are an unforgettable watch always providing an imaginative tour de force.

Supported by a preview of the new fringe show by Paul Vickers aka Twonks : Twonkey’s Basket Weaving in Peru: I am the spirit of the mountains, elf of the sea air, a basket maker. The Award winning fringe legend returns with a mysterious melodic new adventure. Twonkey is starting to think a simple life in Peru might be the way forward. Follow him with his donkey, puppets and songs to spiritual enlightenment or death.
