Yorkston/Thorne/Ghatak

Kings Place welcomes  Yorkston/Thorne/Ghatak for an electric fusion of their own individual musical styles and influences, with improvisations housed in considered compositions, traditional songs and ragas from the UK, Ireland and India.


Since 2016 James Yorkston (one of the most ‘influential singer/songwriters on the Scottish folk scene’), Jon Thorne, best known as jazz double bass player with electro outfit Lamb, and Suhail Yusuf Khan have been exploring the crossover worlds of Indian Classical, Jazz and Folk music. They have released three albums worldwide on Domino Records and toured Europe and India, with Rolling Stone calling their 2017 Neuk Wight Delhi All-Stars a ‘game-changing masterpiece’.

Their third album Navarasa : Nine Emotions was released worldwide by Domino Records in January 2020 and was declared Folk album of the Year by The Guardian.

Ever moving forwards, James and Jon have now teamed up with Ranjana Ghatak. Ranjana studied under the guidance of Maestro Pandit Ajoy Chakabarty and is hugely experienced in the classical and devotional Hindustani vocal traditions, as well as being a player of Harmonium and Tanpura.

Expect new pieces exploring the beauty of sacred vocal music, and established work from the first three Yorkston / Thorne / Khan albums, all played with a new flavour and excitement, as the sounds of this new trio are explored.
