The enigmatic songwriter Mike Scott, "madman or genius, depending on your point of view" (Record Collector Magazine), has explored many sounds and styles through The Waterboys, his principle vehicle since 1983, but the burning intensity of Celtic folk rock remains at the center. The band will play songs from their latest project, An Appointment with Mr. Yeats, music set to the words of Ireland's greatest lyric poet. Opening the night is fellow Scotsman Alasdair Roberts, a sometime collaborator with Will Oldham, who infuses his songs "with the enduring melodies and lyrical twists of ancient folk music" (The Guardian UK).
