Celtic Connections: Stuart Murdoch to sing Nick Drake

'Tonight, Matthew, I'm going to be..... "

Is Nick Drake still trendy? Mind a few years back when Brad Pitt and the like started declaring their love for the cult folk song writer, that's all passed by now right? Hopefully as there is nothing worse than having to listen to celebrities banging on about a musician they've 'discovered', it can really kill the music for me, it's like finding the moment when the muppets in your work suddenly know all about that wee band you were banging on about 6 months earlier.
Fuck, I am rambling, it's still early, that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it.
The point of this post was to point out that Stuart Murdoch, he of B&S fame will be taking part in the special Nick Drake night at the Royal Concert Hall as part of this years Celtic Connections festival on Wednesday the 20th of January.
Other artists adding their vocal talents to the evening include Vashti Bunyan, Green Gartside, Teddy Thompson, Robyn Hitchcock, Lisa Hannigan and Krystle Warren.
Sounds like it could be a really good night, if it tickles your fancy then tickets are on sale now for about £20, to buy tickets and for more relevant information just go here.
