Perhaps you missed the folksy melodic pop of Benedikt Hermann Hermannsson at this year’s Fence Collective Homegame? No need to beat yourself up – the man (and accompanying band, which can range between three and forty others) better known as Benni Hemm Hemm is currently working with Alasdair Roberts. The pair will perform a specially written piece, with a wind ensemble, in Hermannson’s native Iceland in June. Before that, he’s off on a UK tour, stopping by to warm us all up with his lilting, lo-fi whispers.
Roxy Art House, Edinburgh, Mon 29 Mar; Bloc, Glasgow, Tue 30 Mar.
