The Glasgow-born 37-year-old will take to the stage at Etal Village Hall on Saturday.

Napier made his name touring and recording with multi-award winning traditional Scottish folk band Back of the Moon, putting out three albums between 2001 and 2005.

Subsequent projects Queen Anne’s Revenge, yielding albums in 2005 and 2008, and the Bar Room Mountaineers have allowed his song-writing to take centre stage, earning him comparisons with Squeeze’s Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook.

He has also released two albums with the Mountaineers, 2011’s File Under Fiction and 2008’s Out All Night.

Napier is also well known as the host of Celtic Connections’ Late Night Sessions and for his Hazy Recollections concert series showcasing the best in new roots music.

His latest albums were last January’s VIP: Very Interesting Persons, his only solo release to date, made up of 10 songs about real-life characters co-written and produced by Boo Hewerdine, and Two Men on a Boat with Chris Sherburn, out last March.

He will be accompanied by Borders flute player Freya Rae and guitarist Louis Bingham.
