Golden Hum presents Brigid Mae Power + Gareth Dickson + Constant Follower.

A new intimate night of spectral live music from the fringes of folk, indie and experimental music.

In collaboration with local musician Constant Follower, the regular showcase Golden Hum pairs Scottish songwriters with international touring artists from the cutting edge of contemporary music.

Brigid Mae Power has found her voice on her new self-titled album for Tompkins Square, expanding the lo-fi, DIY nature of her early recordings into something more spacious and substantial. Her sound shares that blend of alternative and dreamy folk synonymous with label-mates Ryley Walker and Tim Buckley

Recorded in collaboration with musician/producer Peter Broderick (Efterklang, Sun Kil Moon, A Winged Victory For The Sullen) at his studio in Oregon, the songs are expansive and compelling, built around Power’s transcendent vocal, sparse guitar and piano, and enveloped in Broderick’s shimmering string arrangements.

Gareth Dickson, whose fingerpicked guitar and analogue ambient soundscapes have seen him collaborate with an array of artists spanning Devendra Banhart, David Byrne and Juana Molina, and grace stages worldwide through his work with Vashti Bunyan.

Occasionally entirely instrumental, often with sparing vocals, Dickson is always exploring and finding new possibilities for an age old instrument.

Local artist Constant Follower completes the lineup, pairing a tentative, vulnerable vocal alongside delicate acoustic guitar, his background in electronic music manifesting itself in subtle field recordings and analogue effects.

Golden Hum launches on August 14 at the Tolbooth, tickets £10 in advance, £12 on the door.
