South Street favourite James Yorkston returns to Reading to support the release of his new album The Route to the Harmonium on February 22nd 2019; produced by Yorkston and David Wrench, it is James’ first solo record since 2014’s Cellardyke Recording and Wassailing Society (CRAWS) and follows the two collaborative albums he made as one third of Yorkston/Thorne/Khan as well as the release of his debut novel Three Craws in 2016.

The album was almost entirely recorded by James himself, in the small Scottish fishing village of Cellardyke in Fife, by overlaying vocal and guitar tracks and then adding Dulcitones, harmoniums, autoharps and nyckelharpa, the distinctive Swedish stringed instrument given to him by a friend. It is an intensely personal song cycle; the sound of home and of undisturbed craftsmanship.

Support comes from Baltimore musician Viking Moses.
