Red-hot originals and ice-cool classics as Scotland’s native guitar/vocal legend ('Electrifying' **** (ThreeWeeks)) presents unique acoustic arrangements from the 20th-century songbook and some 21st-century future hits of his own. Echoes of Django Reinhardt and Richard Thompson in an intimate and wide-ranging set celebrating 100 years of great swing-jazz-acoustic music in all its guises – from Tin Pan Alley and the likes of Cole Porter and Henry Mancini to Hank Williams, Billie Holiday, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello and beyond. 'A superb set of eclectic sonics' **** (Skinny). 'Electrifying' **** (ThreeWeeks). 'Captivating' **** (TheWeeReview).
