About the Event
James Yorkston and The Second Hand Orchestra released "The Wide, Wide River" in January 2021 via Domino Records. The album came to be after the blossoming of a long-term friendship between James Yorkston and Karl-Jonas Winqvist, the Swedish music producer, leader and conductor of The Second Hand Orchestra. Recorded and mixed in Sweden over the course of three days with a selection of musicians Winqvist had brought together, including Peter Morén (Peter, Bjorn & John), Cecilia Österholm ,Emma Nordenstam (piano and cello) and Ulrika Gyllenberg (violin). "The Wide, Wide River" is a soothing, warm and sublime listen, The record takes in past loves, advancing age and friends, now gone, while also containing some of the most sanguine songs Yorkston has ever made.
Yorkston furthers his connection with the Swedish collective by teaming up with singer and Cardigans vocalist Nina Persson, who joins the group for a select few dates on this UK summer festival tour.
