Wrap up CoastWord 2019 with music supplied by two of Scotland’s most idiosyncratic talents. Last year, the long-time friends and collaborators teamed up to record Here Lies The Body, where Hubbert’s flamenco-punk guitar merged with Moffat’s battered vocals to powerful effect. If you like wry observations about crashing into middle age and lusty humour, you can’t miss this event.
RM Hubbert is a Scottish guitarist and singer. A fixture on the Glaswegian DIY music scene since 1999 both as a solo artist and as a member of post-rock band El Hombre Trajeado, Hubburt won the Scottish Album of the Year Award in 2013 with Thirteen Lost & Found, beating albums by Emeli Sandi and Calvin Harris.
Aidan Moffat is a Scottish musician and vocalist who has recorded under a variety of names and with an array of musicians over the years, most notably as part of the band Arab Strap and as a solo artist. Collaborators include Mogwai, Bill Wells and Malcolm Middleton. In 2016 Moffat featured in the documentary Where You’re Meant to Be, in which he toured Scotland performing his reinterpretations of traditional Scottish folk songs.
