Celebrating the 10th anniversary since the release of Before The Ruin, John McCusker and Roddy Woomble perform the contemporary Scottish folk classic live.
Before The Ruin is the result of three of Scotland's best writers and performers getting together with limited time and composing a beautiful poetic album. Regardless of you enjoy folk music or not, Before The Ruin is perfect for those who admire the well-written song.
As the BBC said at the time; ’Taking traditional folk as a starting point, they add in splashes of CSNY, pastoral Zeppelin and Radiohead, to make something that, in this world of transient pop daisies, is resolutely made of long lasting oak. Before The Ruin is an important work, crammed with deft, sweet touches’.
Sit back and witness the contemporary Scottish folk classic be brought to life on stage. Joining them is their friend Louise Abbott from Scottish music group, Admiral Fallow. Plus Scottish songwriter Sorren Maclean.
