After a fervently busy summer which included triumphant appearance at festivals including Field Day, Glastonbury, Green Man and Lost Map’s Howlin’ Fling, and was capped with a shortlisting for the Scottish Album of the Year Award by popular vote, Isle of Eigg-based Scottish DIY electronic folk-tinged croft pop sonic hermit and Lost Map Records founder and director Johnny Lynch AKA Pictish Trail looks ahead to the cold season with the Winter Rewind Acid Reflux Tour.

A self-styled “intimate yuletide Eigg-nog of Hebridean Casio folk, with stripped back, twisted and blissed out regurgitations of ol’ Pictish Trail favourites” it’ll take in a clutch of dates up and down the UK, and feature Johnny performing as a three-piece together with multi-instrumentalists Suse Bear (Tuff Love) and John B. McKenna from Monoganon, who also be the tour support. Ahead of the UK dates, Pictish Trail takes on a solo European tour supporting KT Tunstall.

With a new album in the works, Pictish Trail joins a legion of formidable pop talent including Jane Weaver, Hater, Death And Vanilla, Modern Studies and Virginia Wing.

“Verrrrry much looking forward to continuing the sonic adventures of Pictish Trail with the good people of Fire Records and my Lost Map family.”
