Over the past few years Withered Hand – aka Edinburgh DIY folk-rock troubadour Dan Willson – has released an outstanding debut album, Good News, become a much-loved member of King Creosote’s Fence Collective, seen his songs picked up on MTV and cult series Skins, and gained an unlikely legion of fans including Jarvis Cocker and the US Rolling Stone Magazine (who decreed him ‘Artist to Watch’).

He also struck up a friendship with indie statesman Darren Hayman (of Hefner), which led to a recording session in Hayman’s London studio late 2011. Some of the fruits of their labour were released in the UK by Fence Records on the raucous Heart Heart EP and the remainder unveiled on the more reflective Inbetweens EP, available outside the UK on European label Kimi Records from the end of 2012.

More recent Withered Hand shows have included collaborations with Pam Berry of seminal 90s US noisepop band Black Tambourine and a rotating cast of musical friends embellishing Dan’s exuberant and original songwriting alongside fragile and uplifting solo performances.

A long-awaited second full album is scheduled to be released in UK and USA in early 2014 and was recorded this summer featuring guest appearances from Pam Berry, King Creosote, Eugene Kelly of The Vaselines and members of Belle & Sebastian and Frightened Rabbit.

Dan and his new-look WH band are delighted to be returning to the road in October 2013 for a number of intimate shows playing new songs alongside material from the back catalogue.

‘He records like Billy Childish and mixes like the Blue Nile’ – Darren Hayman, Hefner

‘The UK’s best lyricist’ – King Creosote

Main support comes from Hebden Bridge's Johnny Powell - 'for fans of Mount Eerie, The Mountain Goats and melancholic instability'.

Opening the show is Fully Mared, formerly known as Julian Donkey-Boy.

Price: £7.50 adv
