Familiar to many thousands of music fans as the front man in the Scottish rock band Idlewild, Roddy Woomble is also a celebrated solo songwriter & performer. In 2016, Roddy will be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of his debut solo album 'My Secret is my Silence' with a special UK tour and song book. The highly praised album debuted at number 1 in the UK folk charts back in 2006, and through word of mouth became something of a 'cult classic'. Produced by John McCusker and recorded over a week at a rural studio in Yorkshire, the album blends the melodic alternative rock that made Idlewild famous, with a more introspective acoustic, folk influence, recalling at times Bert Jansch, the Waterboys and early Fairport Convention. For this tour Roddy's band featuring Hannah Fisher (violin & vocals), Craig Ainslie (bass), Sorren Maclean (guitar, vocals) and Danny Grant (Drums) will help to create the perfect backdrop for Roddy's poetic lyrics, blending touches of country and folk to this set of poignant songs.
'…I'm really excited to play through My Secret is My Silence with the band – I always view songs as evolving things, so it'll be interested to see how they sound on stage 10 years later – the last time some of these songs were sung was the day they were recorded' Roddy Woomble
