Kate Bush to be celebrated with Scottish festival

Aberdeen event stars The Twilight Sad and Field Music

Kate Bush is to be the subject of a tribute festival curated by former The Delgados singer Emma Pollock.

Running Up That Hill – A Celebration Of The Work Of Kate Bush is at Aberdeen’s His Majesty’s Theatre on September 25.

It stars Pollock, The Twilight Sad singer James Graham, Field Music singer Peter Brewis, Kathryn Joseph, Karine Polwart, Kathryn Williams, Admiral Fallow singer Sarah Hayes, Rachel Sermanni, Roddy Hart and Bdy_Prts. Tickets are £25, on sale now.

The concert is part of True North at various Aberdeen venues from September 22-25. Other gigs include Laura Mvula (September 22); Richard Hawley, C Duncan (23); King Creosote, Lone Lady (24) and Honeyblood (25).

Pollock recently released new album ‘In Search Of Harperfield’, her third solo album since The Delgados split in 2005. Since the band split, Alun Woodward has released an album as Lord Cut-Glass, while drummer Paul Savage has produced for Franz Ferdinand, The Twilight Sad and Mogwai.

Bush’s most recent album was ’50 Words For Snow’ in 2011. She then played a residency at Hammersmith Apollo in 2014 for her first live concerts since 1979. She may be working on a new album, she may not. She’s Kate Bush, it’s hard to be certain.

Pollock also plays at Latitude, Deer Shed, Mugstock, Indietracks and Cloudspotting festivals.
