BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer Of The Year Karine Polwart reimagines a clutch of beloved songs that cut across fifty years of Scottish pop. Eighties classics from Deacon Blue, The Waterboys and Big Country sit alongside the stadium balladry of Biffy Clyro, while maverick legend Ivor Cutler rubs shoulders with the electro-pop of Chvrches and the immaculate song craft of John Martyn. 

Karine says, “To me, these are songs of resilience and resistance, cries of despair and dreams of something better. They’re pop songs, but also love songs to people and places we all recognise. They totally fill my heart up”.  

Karine is joined on stage by regular band mates Steven Polwart and Inge Thomson, with Graeme Smillie (bass and keys), Calum McIntyre (kit and percussion) and Louis Abbott of Admiral Fallow (vocals, guitar & percussion) for a joyful evening of Scottish music gems. 

A triumphant, sell-out hit at 2018’s Edinburgh International Festival and Celtic Connections 2019, Karine Polwart’s Scottish Songbook reveals yet another dimension to the singer-songwriter’s multi-award-winning artistry.

A mighty celebration which bounced between giddy veneration and daring reinvention
