Two fine Scottish songwriters have released novels to great acclaim and we are very pleased that they have agreed to share a stage at Aye Write! to read from their books but also play a few songs and talk about the relationship between their fiction and songwriting. Colin MacIntyre of Mull Historical Society’s The letters of Ivor Punch Is an original and multi-faceted island set novel that won the EIBF’s First Book Award. James Yorkston has released twelve albums and was an early member of the Fence Collective. His debut novel Three Craws is a beautifully evoked portrait of contemporary rural life in Scotland for those dealt a meagre hand. (Chaired by GMCT’s Fiona Shepherd)
