This month’s Society of Sound release is the first of an occasional series of live recordings from London’s Kings Place. Roddy Woomble (Idlewild) and his band make the most of the bespoke acoustics playing a beautifully balanced set of songs mixing folk, Americana and Scottish influenced tunes. Roddy’s intimate vocals are backed by Hannah Fisher - fiddle & vocals, Sorren Maclean - ccoustic guitar & vocals, Luciano Rossi - Piano and Craig Ainslie - electric bass.
Recorded live at King’s Place by Dave Wells and mixed by Patrick Phillips at Real World Studios.
Since 2010 and the Idlewild hiatus, Roddy Woomble and his solo band have toured consistently playing hundreds of concerts in theatres, folk clubs, village halls and arts centres the length and breadth of the UK. Together they have released three albums ‘The Impossible song & other songs’ (2011). 'Listen to Keep’ (2013) and 'Live in the Inner Hebrides’ (2014). The show at Kings Place comes at the end of his solo band touring for a while as Idlewild gear up to release a new album and tour in 2015.
