Ivan is appearing this Saturday (21st January) at Celtic Connections with his house band from the Orkney Gathering:

Originally staged at the 2016 Orkney Folk Festival to celebrate the 60th birthday of its eponymous star, Ivan Drever’s Orkney Gathering features a who’s-who of the islands’ folk and rock talent, joining forces on a career-spanning set of songs and tunes penned by this much-loved artist. Having started out as a teenager in the duo Knowe O’Deil before fronting Wolfstone as they rose to fame, Drever has a rich back catalogue to draw on and is joined for these lavish new arrangements by a six-piece house band, together with members of the Kirkwall Pipe Band and the Orkney Song Shop Choir.
