Description

This evening will mark the launch of Cupar Arts EDEN 2019, a chance to see our Celie Byrne Exhibition, art and chat from Phill Jupitus and music from The Pictish Trail.

Celie Byrne’s portrait paintings display a combination of compelling realism and storytelling, drawing you into an intriguing world of the surreal and the everyday in a striking juxtaposition of reality and imagination.

Throughout his career Pictish Trail – aka Johnny Lynch – has resolutely furrowed his own path, steadily creating a unique catalogue of recordings and performances through his own labels (Lost Map / Fence Records) while eschewing the blueprint of the predictable singer-songwriter in favour of something untidily intriguing. Born out of a compulsion to make infectious, melody-driven music from a treasure trove of secret sounds, Pictish Trail’s spectral songs are filtered through a sun-warped pop lens, where heart-pumping guitar shriek-outs collide with sampled gurgles and fractured lyrics figure-skate over sine-waves of glacial synth.

Something of a sonic hermit, Pictish Trail spent a good few years tucked away in his caravan on the Hebridean Isle of Eigg, feverishly working on the follow up to Secret Soundz Vol. 1 & 2, his critically-acclaimed double album of DIY electronic folk-tinged croft pop, released in 2014. A mesmerising psychedelic opus about death and the after-life, Future Echoes won the public vote for Scottish Album of the Year in 2017, and sent Pictish on an two-year tour cycle – including international tour dates supporting Belle and Sebastian, British Sea Power, Malcolm Middleton and KT Tunstall, as well as appearances at Glastonbury, Field Day, Green Man, Deer Shed, Skye Live, not to mention his own legendary Howlin’ Fling! weekender on Eigg.

Following the release of a deluxe edition of Future Echoes by esteemed London tastemakers, Fire Records, in 2018, Pictish is currently working on brand new material due in 2019…….

Phill Jupitus became a familiar face when he started as team captain on BBC Two’s pop quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks in 1996, which went on to run for 19 years. Aside from live poetry and stand up shows all over the UK, he also appears as a regular guest on QI (BBC Two) and Alan Davies As Yet Untitled (Dave), and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo (BBC One). His other TV credits include A Night At The Theatre (BBC Scotland), Friday Night Jukebox Live! (BBC Four), 8 Out of Ten Cats (C4), Would I Lie To You (BBC One), The Blame Game (BBC Northern Ireland), Pointless Celebrities (BBC One) and World's Most Dangerous Roads (Dave). Not to mention his appearances on BBC Radio 4 - News Quiz, I’m Sorry I Haven't A Clue, Just A Minute and The Unbelievable Truth.

Doors open at 7 pm.

Bar Available.
