Kris Drever

Drever’s voice and guitar is a part of the backbone of today’s contemporary roots and folk scene. Hugely admired as a solo artist, collaborator, and member of folk superstars Lau, he is a phenomenal and prolific artist. Drever has already played alongside Jack Bruce, Bela Fleck, Tinariwen, Joan As Police Woman, Jerry Douglas, Danny Thompson, Tim O’Brien, Sarah Jarosz, Shawn Colvin, Phil Cunningham, Rosanne Cash, Roddy Woomble, Eddi Reader, Adem, Kate Rusby, Julie Fowlis, Karine Polwart and many more.

Alongside the new material from If Wishes Were Horses, Kris will revist old songs from across his back catalogue playing many outside of the recording studio for the first time. Fans can get involved by posting, on his Facebook page, old songs they would like to hear; Kris will then pick from those selections.
