Since 1995 and over the course of twelve albums (8 with his band Idlewild, 4 as a solo performer) Roddy Woomble has established himself as one of Scotland’s finest modern songwriters. For the first time, those lyrics, rich with vivid imagery, wordplay and wisdom, are presented on paper in his book, Instrumentals. Alongside an archive of rare photographs and documents of Roddy’s notebooks, paintings and artefacts, the result is an almanac of ideas, a stunning narrative of a past and present. Roddy will discuss the book, before being joined in a short acoustic performance by Scottish musician and multi-instrumentalist, Andrew Wasylyk.
