‘Outliers’ – Boo Hewerdine and Jenny Sturgeon At Wadsworth Community Centre
February 10 @ 7:45 pm GMT£15
Created between their homes in Glasgow and Shetland during 2020/21, Outliers came to signify an outlet which renowned songwriters Boo Hewerdine and Jenny Sturgeon would never have had the chance to explore otherwise. Meeting up online for an hour every week gave them an opportunity to write songs in a way they’d not done before. Recording at home and sending melodies, sounds, ideas to each other provided the space and time to experiment outside of a usual studio setting. The evolution and method of creating this music led them to settle on the name Outliers.
Outliers will be joined on stage by multi-instrumentalist Grant Anderson. The first half of the gig features songs from Boo and Jenny’s back catalogue. In the second half, Boo, Jenny and Grant will perform new music from the album ‘Outliers’, due for release in Autumn 2023 on Hudson Records.
Boo Hewerdine – vocals, guitars
Jenny Sturgeon – vocals, keys, synth, guitar, samples
