    UNITY WORKS, WAKEFIELD - MON 26th JAN 2015

    Hee Haw Sessions & On The Ride co-promote.
    Please Note: This event will be a standard King Creosote show with no film screening.

    King Creosote is the stage name of Kenny Anderson, an independent singer-songwriter from Fife, Scotland. To date, Anderson has released over forty albums. Critics described his most recent offering, ‘From Scotland With Love’, as ‘a lovingly crafted thing’ (Independent on Sunday), ‘consistently superb’ (Loud & Quiet – 9/10) and ‘a beautiful thing, flitting between affecting, inspiring, amusing and enchanting’ (Time Out – 4* lead review). The Daily Mirror claiming ‘…this is the most expansive and finely detailed release of Kenny Anderson’s career’

    ‘From Scotland With Love’ is essentially the soundtrack for a film about Scotland created for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The film which explores the history of the country is compiled entirely from archive footage with no commentary or narration. Anderson’s powerful cinematic album is the perfect partner for the poetic film.

    Anderson’s previous record ‘Diamond Mine’ (released in 2011) is a collaboration with electronica composer Jon Hopkins featuring songs written earlier in King Creosote’s career. The album was nominated for the Mercury Prize and the subsequent tour in support of the album saw Anderson and Jon Hopkins play a number of sold out shows across the country.

    Anderson is also a member of Scottish-Canadian ‘supergroup’ The Burns Unit and the founder of the prestigious independent label Fence Records.

    “King Creosote’s voice – a light, reedy tenor with departures – is a thing of extraordinary beauty” – The Independent
