His Majesty's Theatre & Festival Pass show
Aberdeen Performing Arts presents True North – Aberdeen’s festival of music and song – will take place in venues around the city from Thursday 22 - Sunday 25 September. The festival is inspired by the fantastic heritage of singer-songwriters in the North-east, and features a line-up of iconic musicians and emerging talent.
Richard Hawley acoustic set
Richard Hawley performs an intimate acoustic set with his guitarist Shez Sheridan. Born into a musical family, it seemed inevitable Richard Hawley would become a musician. The former Pulp guitarist and Longpigs member began his solo career in 2001. Since then he has released eight studio albums, the most recent of which is titled Hollow Meadows. The Sheffield-born musician has twice been nominated for a Mercury prize and once for a Brit Award. During his solo career he has collaborated with Jarvis Cocker, Lisa Marie Presley, Arctic Monkeys and Paul Weller.
Plus support from Best Girl Athlete
Local duo Best Girl Athlete is talented Katie Buchan and her musician father Charley Buchan. Blessed with a voice which sounds wise beyond its years, Katie has an earthy, ethereal tone which sets her apart from the crowd. Katie released her debut album Carve Every Word last year via Aberdeen-based Fitlike Records in the UK and through Minty Fresh Records in the North America. The young star played the Edinburgh Fringe this year and has performed many times at The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen.
