Video: Roddy Woomble Band plays ‘Travelling Light’ at Mount Stuart

SCOTS singer-songwriter Roddy Woomble and a small but select group of hugely talented musicians played to an appreciative full house at Mount Stuart on Thursday.

The band - comprising Roddy on lead vocals, Sorren Maclean on guitar and vocals, Craig Ainslie on bass and Seonaid Aitken on fiddle, piano and backing vocals, played in the atmospheric crypt beneat Mount Stuart’s Marble Chapel - the latest stop on a hectic summer tour schedule also including festival dates as far afield as Stornoway and Cheltenham.

The quartet - supported by young Mull chanteuse Fiona McAdam - performed songs from 2011’s ‘The Impossible Song And Other Songs’ album, as well as a selection of new material and one or two old favourites, including a cover of Levon Helm’s Twilight and a folk-influenced version of the song for which Woomble is still best known - Idlewild’s 2002 smash hit You Held The World In Your Arms.
