Mike Vass presents ‘Save His Calm’

One of Scotland’s foremost musicians brings his remarkable new song cycle on the road the first time.

Mike Vass, previously a nominee in the Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) award and winner in the Scots Trad music awards composer of the year category, is a creative force of nature on the Scottish music scene.

His critically acclaimed ‘In the wake of Neil Gunn’ was described as ‘a terrific album……an adept weaver of electronic and acoustic textures’. (The Guardian) Vass’ music transcends genre boundaries, drawing influence from the neo-classical, indie-folk and electronic worlds; his songs run the gamut from darkly comic to heart-wrenching narrative and all with an unmatched melodic sensibility. ‘These songs are all, piece for piece, immaculate and time and again they hold testimony of the excellent songwriter-ship and artistry of Mike Vass’ (arctic drones)

Much in demand as a producer and collaborator over the past several years, Mike has worked with the likes of Kathleen MacInnes, Fiona Hunter, Malinky, Runrig, Battlefield Band, Siobhan Miller and Findlay Napier – to name but a few. 2019 sees him back touring his own music for the first time in four years. Not to be missed!
