On today's episode I talk to musician James Yorkston. Originally
from the village of Kingsbarns, Fife in Scotland, James has been
playing music since he was young, and was an integral early member
of the Fence Collective, a collaborative group of musicians that
included groups like The Beta Band. James spent years honing his
craft was eventually championed by John Peel and John Martyn after
he sent them tapes of his music. This led to him being signed by
Domino who have subsequently released most of his albums including
2019's critically acclaimed The Route to the Harmonium and his
latest album with the Second Hand Orchestra The Wide, Wide River,
which is already one of the best albums of the year.
