REVIEW: Eastern Promise Festival – Pictish Trail – Platform, Easterhouse

From the isle of Eigg via Edinburgh, Johnny Lynch aka Pictish Trail, delivers an accomplished set to round off the first night of Platform’s Eastern Promise festival.

At times: folk, rave, hip-hop, trip-hop, electro and wearing the legacy of jangly Scottish pop on its sleeve, Lynch manages to pack more styles and sounds into this one performance than a festival-load of artists.

Wistful, ethereal, harmonious, soaring, screaming, but at all times original and entirely pleasing to the ear, Pictish Trail deserve to be heard.
