The Tin Music and Arts are very excited to be teaming up with the fantastic team at Inspire to bring you an awesome night of live music in the shape of Lone Pigeon.

Lone Pigeon is a the working name of Gordon Anderson, a Scottish musician and co-founder of The Beta Band (which was formerly known as The Pigeons) and an integral part of the Fence Collective set up with his brother Kenny Anderson (King Creosote)

After The Beta Band came to an end Gordon rejoined his former band mates John Maclean and Robin Jones to create THE ALIENS and recorded two albums and played worldwide.

Lone Pigeon cuts an enigmatic figure, whilst his musical eccentricities funnily enough refuse to allow his style to be pigeonholed. Reviews name check familiar artists but in every essence they are wholly Pigeon. Beguiling, fragile and bereft of ego, vanity or spin Lone Pigeon crouches almost alone in a popular culture in which he has no interest and little understanding. Outside of his hometown the LP live is a very rare bird, but in full flight there really is nothing more spellbinding as anyone lucky to have witnessed can attest. An artist, poet, musician, traveler and believer, the LP is a complicated character but with his music he creates sublime melodies that can elicit the simplest emotions; tunes that will make you smile with joy or alternately weep in shared sorrow. You would have to be wooden not to care.

Fully seated gig only seventy tickets. Be quick.

Big thanks to Stewart Easton for the artwork.
