Louis Rive

Date: 29th October 2022
Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Dreel Halls
Other Events

To buy tickets for this event, please follow the 'More info' link.

Louis plays folk music; not so much the kind about orcs, glens, wizards etc, more about people and places. Like Tom Waits and Judy Collins if either of them wrote about the G33 postcode. Closer tae home he wants to follow on from top storytellers like Michael Marra, Liz Lochead, and Hamish Imlach.

Following on from his debut album, ‘The Cheap Part of Town’, a 2018 ode to an unknown suburb of greater Barcelona where he was resident at the time, Louis has continued to release singles that comment on the realities of day-to-day life. Whether it be Scotland’s unspoken relationship with its past (The State of the Nation), the sheer unbridled joy of heading to the big city for a Saturday night (19:27 Saturday Service to Helensburgh Central), or even the nationalistic jingoism that has come to define many aspects of 21st century UK life (Whitewashing), Louis has never shied away from the highs and lows of life’s great story.

A regular on local radio, the last few years have seen Louis progress from the smaller stage to the bigger and back again, with slots at Black Deer Festival and a two-night run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. As with many other artists, the less said about 2020/1 from a live point of view, the better. However, this time was far from wasted, and indeed Louis’ music took to the well-travelled highways of the world wide web in a series of streamed concerts in association with folk clubs in Scotland and in the USA. The last 12 months has seen Louis graduate to airplay on the BBC as part of ‘Upload’, a BBC Introducing Programme. The success of this led to a show during the 2021 Fringe Festival as part of the BBC Radio Scotland Stage. Louis’ latest release, ‘Dear Green Place’ is out from April 2022 and he has returned to live shows across Scotland.

As comfortable in small bars as he is on the festival stage, Louis brings a deep audience interaction to any show he plays, something that the world of narrative folk music was always about. He is, in every sense of the word, a storytelling musician, and there are many stories to tell.
