Yorkston Thorne Khan

James Yorkston, Jon Thorne and Suhail Khan together combine their singular talents to create a confluence of currents, among them the north Indian sarangi; jazz-tinged bass, reminiscent in places of Danny Thompson; acoustic guitar that owes a debt to Dick Gaughan and Mississippi John Hurt; and three very different vocalists - James Yorkston (East Neuk of Fife), Jon Thorne (Isle of Wight) and Suhail Yusuf Khan (New Delhi).   
Two critically acclaimed albums in as many years, incredible performances at Green Man, Celtic Connections, Edinburgh and Glastonbury Festivals, and tours in India, Spain and Ireland have brought increased confidence and more fluid interplay between Yorkston, Thorne and Khan.   
As Jon Thorne says: "I think YTK is a fine example of how music operates without boundaries as a common international language and a source of cross-cultural unity. It’s an important message in the times that we live in."

Yorkston Thorne Khan play St. Patrick's Gateway Centre, Sunday October 29th.
