About this event

The Magic Lantern

The Magic Lantern is the musical moniker of singer-songwriter and composer Jamie Doe, an artist blurring the boundaries between folk, jazz and contemporary music. Born in Australia before moving to the UK at 12, his songs examine the limitless depth of human experience with devastating, joyous results.

His upcoming fourth album 'A Reckoning Bell' written and recorded while helping to care for his father with Alzheimers disease, sees Jamie turn to the piano to explore what loss can teach us about love and how love’s many small acts give a life meaning. The result is a study in masculine vulnerability that sits with and acknowledges the inevitability of a loss witnessed in slow motion and the unexpected moments of joy that sustain us.

The Magic Lantern’s live show is a rich, cathartic and moving experience dedicated to addressing the fear and anxiety present in us all.

‘A Reckoning Bell’ is released on 5 November 2021 via Hectic Eclectic Records.

“Dreamy, beautiful. Something very, very special." Lauren Laverne, BBC6 Music

“Extraordinary. Beautiful poised singing, amazing lyrics. Hypnotic!" Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music

"Gorgeous, beautiful. This stopped me in my tracks. Slightly surreal, in all the right ways. He’s just one of those artists who sounds totally like himself “ Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2

Finn Anderson

Moving between the worlds of music and theatre, Finn Anderson is one of Scotland's most enchanting storytellers. Drawing on folk, jazz, pop and orchestral influences, Finn’s songs move freely from the soft and intimate to the bold and dramatic, strung together by intricately crafted and heartfelt lyrics.

Finn's upcoming second album 'Into the Arms of Ghosts' is an intimate and personal collection of songs exploring longing and belonging, growth and change, love and loss - set against the rivers, coasts and landscapes of his childhood in rural Fife and Perthshire.

This new album follows a string of recent adventures including composing award-winning hit folk musical 'Islander', a solo US tour with Sofar Sounds, and performances at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall alongside Rachel Sermanni, C Duncan and Man of the Minch for Celtic Connections festival as part of LGBTQ folk music collective Bogha-Frois.

“Finn's musicality and knack for poetic storytelling simply steal you away into a world of his own making" Fresh on the Net

"One of Scotland's best kept songwriting secrets" Moonstruck on Clydeside

"A great songwriting talent" Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

"Few artists can stir our souls as strongly as Finn Anderson does" Frostclick
