Gavin Livingstone has been part of the folk scene for many years, initially as a very young member of The Skerries, later (mid-80s – 90s) as co-founder of Tonight at Noon, and thereafter to be found enhancing other bands, including Mirk, Handsel and, at present, Arthur Johnstone and The Stars Band.
Gavin’s long-overdue solo album Fire in the Snow was released on the 3rd of June 2019. It contains nine tracks, 8 of which are Gavin’s own compositions, and one by the Scottish songwriter Alistair Hulett.
Fire in the Snow showcases Gavin’s experience and talents as a singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and innovator. Combining gorgeous harmonies, meaningful songs and skilful instrumentation, Fire in the Snow mixes folk and electronic genres to produce ground-breaking music that defies comparison.
