Scottish folk troubadour James Yorkston’s acclaimed trio calls into Manchester’s Deaf Institute as part of a UK tour. Formed by Yorkston and Suhail Yusuf Khan on the spur of a backstage festival introduction and subsequent improvised duet, YTK’s story went onto incorporate Lamb bassist Jon Thorne. The trio beckoned in their debut record, Everything Sacred, at the turn of the new year, but their true charm is where they began, crafting tunes on the stage, matching and complementing each other’s instrumental virtuosity.

Wed 24 Feb, Deaf Institute, 135 Grosvenor Street, Manchester, M1 7HE. Tel: 0161 276 9350, 7.30pm, £12.50,
