Findlay Napier is one of the most highly-regarded performers and creative forces on the Scottish music scene thoroughly active and a truly energised with a heart-warming zing.
He made his name touring and recording with multi-award winning traditional Scottish folk band Back of the Moon. In his more recent projects ‘Queen Anne’s Revenge’ and ‘The Bar Room Mountaineers’ his song-writing took centre stage and was described by The Sunday Herald as ‘Genuine songcraft and wit following in the Difford & Tilbrook tradition’. Findlay is also well known as the host of Celtic Connections’ Late Night Sessions and for his Hazy Recollections concert series which showcases the very best in new roots music.
His new album, VIP: Very Interesting Persons, contains ten songs about real life characters that have led very interesting lives. The album was co-written and produced by Boo Hewerdine and features performances from Admiral Fallow’s Louis Abbott, Gillian Frame, Roy Dodds, Hamish Napier and incredible Danish multi instrumentalist Gustaf Ljunggren.
Findlay is releasing his single The Man Who Sold New York in March to tie in with his support slot on Eddi Reader’s March UK tour.
