About Drever, McCusker and Woomble

‘Before The Ruin’ 10th anniversary concerts

It’s been a decade since the release of ‘Before The Ruin’ – the collaborative album between three of Scotland’s best current writers and performers – award winning folk musicians John McCusker, Kris Drever (LAU) and Idlewild frontman Roddy Woomble. Since its release the album has gone on to become one of those rare things – a word of mouth success, admired and loved by those who know it, and a slow burning contemporary Scottish folk classic. 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 somethingthat, 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’ The trio played over forty shows around the UK after the records release, but have spent the last ten years within their various own projects. This will be the first time onstage together since 2008. Three talented and unique musicians performing a collection of melancholic, poignant & much loved songs.
