Hailing from Leith, and one of the most potent artists to emerge from the Scottish folk-music revival, Dick Gaughan tells it like it is. His explosive and dexterous guitar-playing and tremendous voice express his passionate, often affectionate, and always truthful songs perfectly.
Whether reaffirming his own Scottish working-class identity, or contemplating a wider world vision, Gaughan has a remarkable gift for drawing his audiences into his personal and poignant commentaries on life, the world and an alternative future.
This show promises an intimate night in the company of a great singer-songwriter whose live shows are lauded wherever he goes.
Watch Dick Gaughan perform Both Sides the Tweed with Emmylou Harris for the Transatlantic Sessions.
