Yorkston Thorne Khan – The Blues You Sang: Anatomy of a Song

News Team | 14 Aug 2015

Filmed as part of Summerhall's Nothing Ever Happens Here gig series, we present  'Anatomy of a Song'. 

Episode one focuses on the burgeoning collaboration between James Yorkston, Suhail Yusuf Khan and Jon Thorne, where they discuss and perform a new rendition of The Blues You Sang, a tribute to late friend and double bass player Doogie Paul originally recorded for Yorkston's 2014 release The Cellardyke Recording and Wassailing Society

"It's a song I wrote for Doogie, really," says Yorkston of the poignant piece's origin. "It fitted with this project because there was space and it gave Jon a lot of time to do some great bass playing, which works for me. When I'm playing and I'm hearing what he's up to, it brings back some good memories."

You can see Yorkston Thorne Khan play The Ruby Lounge, Manchester on 26 Aug and Unbound at The Spiegeltent, George Square, Edinburgh on 28 Aug. 

The trio's debut LP is expected towards the end of the year via Domino Records.
