The Queen Charlotte continues to establish itself on the local music scene, and they've pulled off a bit of a coup here. King Creosote - otherwise known as Kenny Anderson - is a Fife-based electronic/folk demon who produces drop-dead-gorgeous soul-folk-country songs.

And he does so at a phenomenal rate. The acoustically-inclined Scottish folkie has already released around 32 albums (even he is not sure of the exact number).

As if that's not enough, the former lead singer/songwriter for bands like Skuobhie Dubh Orchestra and Khartoum Heroes, has also launched his own label, Fence.

This Norwich stop-off is part of King Creosote's on-going promotion of last year's major label released, and critically acclaimed album, Bombshell.

It saw this most laidback workaholic, and most unlikely star, stepping up to top gear. Among the highlights was the heartbreakingly gorgeous Home In A Sentence, the spring-in-your-step sway of Nooks and the tender sea shanty Admiral. Hopefiully they'll all get an airing here.

Support comes from Norwich folk luminaries My Dark Aunt and wiQwar.
