Roddy Woomble returns to the Lemon Tree.
Doors open 7.30pm
Familiar to many thousands of music fans as the front man in the Scottish rock band Idlewild, Roddy Woomble is also a celebrated solo songwriter & performer. He followed up the release of his acclaimed 2006 solo debut My Secret is My Silence with The Impossible Song and Other Songs to an equally fantastic reception.
A native of Irvine - Roddy Woomble co-founded Idlewild in 1995, naming the band for the quiet haven featured in his then favourite book, Anne of Green Gables. Extending a softer lyrical vein of Roddy's songwriting, 2006 saw his first solo release, My Secret Is My Silence, winning rave reviews across both the rock and folk press. Roddy went on to record and release the album Before the Ruin with Kris Drever and John McCusker in 2008, which they toured extensively around the UK to much praise.
The new album will be recorded on the isle of Mull. It is due for release in March 2013.
“One of Britain's most distinct and talented voices”
