Heidi Talbot & John McCusker
Two of folk music's most highly regarded and celebrated musicians, John McCusker and Heidi Talbot, are joining forces for the first time as a duo to celebrate their tenth year as musical partners.
John has produced Heidi's last three albums and they have both toured all over the globe in each others live bands, but this will be the first time the pair collaborate exclusively as a duo. Between them they have shared the stage with Paul Weller, Mark Knopfler, Alison Krauss, James Taylor, Teenage Fanclub, Graham Coxon, Eddi Reader, King Creosote, Tim O'Brien and Jerry Douglas.
Over the past ten years Heidi has performed, both as a solo artist and with the Cherish The Ladies, all over North and South America, the UK and Europe, Australia and New Zealand in the finest concert halls and international festivals. Heidi has been nominated for Folk Singer of the year and Best Traditional Song by BBC Radio 2, Best Live Act by the Scottish Traditional Music Awards and Best Female Vocalist at The Irish Music Awards.
Her fifth solo LP plays to the tune of quiet skips and giant leaps. It crosses the ages, jumps into the unknown, traverses oceans and musical styles – from folk, through Americana, to classic pop, and back again.
John has long been renowned for his skill at transcending musical boundaries: striving to keep his music fresh and exciting, never leaving the past behind but always embracing new sonic adventures.
Since 2008, he has been a member of Mark Knopfler's band, playing arenas around the world including a double bill with Bob Dylan at The Hollywood Bowl and 20 nights at the Royal Albert Hall. John was awarded the coveted BBC Radio 2 Musician of the Year, The Spirit of Scotland Award, and most recently the Good Tradition Award.
