Rising star to play intimate live sets

Rory Butler, who has been described by BBC Scotland's Roddy Hart as "the most exciting Scottish talent to emerge in recent times" will perform an intimate live set of acoustic music around Angus and Fife.

The rising star will be playing live in Carnoustie, Linrathen and Tayport this month with future gigs planned for London, Manchester and Edinburgh later in the year.

Every acoustic singer-songwriter will claim they were born with music in their blood, but few were born with music in their basement. Rory’s childhood home was built on music as his father ran a recording studio in the cellar. Unsurprisingly, music became Rory’s world.

After growing up in Edinburgh, Rory then spent his early twenties in east London, writing and performing new music.

His first single Black and Blue was included on the Apple Music ‘Best of the Week’ and Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlists. Subsequently, the track peaked at number six on the Spotify ‘viral’ chart and made it onto ‘new music’ lists in Brazil, Germany, Portugal and Sweden.

His total world-wide streaming figures now exceed 800,000.

In the build-up to recording his debut album ‘Window Shopping’, Rory opened for John Paul White (The Civil Wars) and folk legend Richard Thompson.

And, at the start of 2019, Rory was also invited to share a stage with Paul Weller, Lucy Rose, Eric Bibb and Ross Wilson (Blue Rose Code) in a sold out concert celebrating the life of the great John Martyn.

Don't miss Rory Butler performing live at the following venues this month:

Friday, June 10, Lodge at Lochside Wee Bear Café, Lintrathen

Saturday, June 11, Dibble Tree Theatre, Carnoustie

Sunday, June12, The Larick Centre, Tayport
