Candi Staton set for Edinburgh and Glasgow shows

For Chris 'Beans' Geddes (he of Belle & Sebastian fame), one of his favourite ever moments from the days of Triptych was when Candi Staton was playing the Renfrew Ferry, and she handed her mic in to the crowd so they could sing back 'Young Hearts Run Free'. Fingers crossed the Southern soul diva is up for another crowd singalong.

With Lorna Brookes, The HMV Picture House, Edinburgh, Fri 23 Apr; with Das Contras, The Ferry, Glasgow, Sat 24 Apr.
