Pocklington Arts Centre has just announced another major booking for it’s ever expanding summer programme of acclaimed singer-songwriters.

Mercury Prize nominee King Creosote aka Kenny Anderson is the latest big name to be confirmed as coming to the venue on Saturday 1 September.

Janet Farmer, Venue Director, said;

“We are delighted to have secured a booking on Kenny’s busy summer festival schedule, we have been big admirers of his work for many years.”

“The show is a great addition to the venue’s fantastic summer season of singer-songwriters including Gretchen Peters, Beth Orton, The Lone Bellow and Irish Mythen.” 

If you build a fence then you have to treat it, as any DIY buff will tell you. You have to make it durable; to help it help us weather storms. Fife’s Kenny Anderson realised this when forming micro-label, Fence, in 1994 – and so he treated it, then treated us, with an alt-pop alter-ego: King Creosote.

Anderson has become of Scotland’s most acclaimed and prolific, singer-songwriters: a squeezebox Casanova with a cosmic wordplay fetish, whose voice leaves gentle devastation in its wake. He was short-listed for 2011’s Mercury Prize thanks to Diamond Mine, his sublime collaboration with Jon Hopkins.

Other key LPs in the KC canon include Kenny and Beth’s Musakal Boat Rides (2003), Rocket DIY (2005), KC Rules OK (2005) Bombshell (2007), Flick the Vs (2009) and his live-only album, My Nth Bit of Strange.

In 2014, Anderson completed his first-ever film soundtrack for From Scotland With Love. The film weaves Scottish archive film footage with KC compositions.

Creatively King Creosote continues to thrive and the Domino Recording Co will release Kenny’s highly anticipated new album – Astronaut Meets Appleman in September this year.

King Creosote (Full Band Show) will be at the Pocklington Arts Centre on Saturday 1 September from 8PM. Tickets are £17.00 and can be booked by caling the Box office on (01759) 301547 or online at
