Aber­feldy Fes­ti­val Novem­ber 2 and 3, Town Hall, Aber­feldy

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - Front Page -

Tak­ing place on Novem­ber 2 and Novem­ber 3 is Aber­feldy Fes­ti­val, a mod­est but well-cho­sen get-to­gether of bands and artists who’ve made an im­pact on the Scot­tish live scene over the past year, as well as a few no­table tour­ing artists who are well worth catch­ing.

Based in the Perth and Kin­ross burgh’s town hall, it will fea­ture, on the first day, acts in­clud­ing alt coun­try lo­cals Star Wheel Press, fuzzy jan­gle-pop­sters The Spook School and Bryde, the sub­lime al­ter-ego of Welsh singer­song­writer Sarah How­ells, a cap­ti­vat­ing per­former whose work just gets bet­ter with ev­ery re­lease. Fans of the likes of PJ Har­vey and Sharon Van Et­ten will find much to ad­mire here. Also per­form­ing on Fri­day will be Lau­rie Cameron, a singer-song­writer whose re­cent Hon­est Man is a beau­ti­ful, heart­break­ing trib­ute to the late Fright­ened Rab­bit singer Scott Hutchi­son.

On Satur­day one-man soul train Ray Har­ris (pic­tured, right) will bring the party with his ex­u­ber­ant, high-en­ergy disco, while Mu­tual Ben­e­fit aka Brook­lyn’s Jor­dan Lee jour­neys east af­ter play­ing Glas­gow’s Blue Ar­row Jazz Club last week.

Life Model, Bro­ken Records front­man Jamie Sutherland and Carla J Eas­ton com­plete the line-up.
