Celtic Connections Presents: This Is The Kit with Aidan O'Rourke Trio

Essentially the alias of alt-folk songstress Kate Stables, This Is the Kit enlisted The National’s Aaron Dessner to produce 2015’s third album Bashed Out, widely hailed as her breakthrough release. Its title wryly belies the lovingly handcrafted character of Stables’s bluegrass-flecked, psychedelic-tinged compositions, woven through with softly soulful vocals.

Outside his work with Lau and Kan, fiddler Aidan O’Rourke’s compositions have featured on three audaciously inventive solo albums. Launching his second EP Imprint, he revisits that catalogue alongside the new material, with guitarist Graeme Stephen and drummer John Blease, plus special guests Rozi Plain (also a touring member of This Is the Kit) and Lamb bassist Jon Thorne.
