Withered Hand is the nom de plume of Edinburgh-based singer-songwriter Dan Willson. A well-travelled solo musician with a cult following, Dan has been celebrated in his adopted country and further afield as a songwriter and lyricist of rare wit and honesty.
Building on his acclaimed debut Good News, the release of a strident second album New Gods almost ten years ago propelled Withered Hand into the charts, featuring appearances by friends, luminaries and supporters from the Scottish music scene, from Belle and Sebastian to Frightened Rabbit, The Vaselines and beyond.
Dan and his band recently recorded a third album with Tony Doogan (Teenage Fanclub, Belle and Sebastian, The Mountain Goats) at the helm, and will be performing stripped-back solo versions of songs from the long-awaited new record (scheduled for release in 2023) alongside old favourites at this intimate performance.
Kitty Perrin is a singer-songwriter based in Norwich. Through melancholy indiepop, she shares intimate and personal stories with her listeners, coloured by sharp and sometimes caustic lyrics. Her penmanship is reminiscent of Elliott Smith Nick Drake, Conor Oberst and modern contemporaries such as Lucy Dacus, Waxahatchee and Julien Baker. She recently released her new EP Stick It Out receiving support from BBC Music Introducing and BBC 6 Music.
