Legendary Scottish singer Horse McDonald is set to return to the stage in Aberdeen when she plays The Lemon Tree on Saturday, 23 April as part of a UK tour, celebrating the 30th anniversary of her seminal debut album, The Same Sky.
The Lemon Tree date is one of 19 across the country as Horse gets set to grace venues from Glasgow to Cardiff with her ‘breath taking stagecraft’ and unparalleled live performance this spring.
Aberdeen audiences will have the chance to be moved by the iconic singer songwriter as she reconnects with fans and the album which kick‐started it all and showcases her powerful, honest and uplifting vocal talents.
Horse said: “I can’t quite believe it’s been 30 years since the release of The Same Sky. It’s going to be such a joy to mark its anniversary with this tour and to be back in front of audiences in Aberdeen will be a ‘pinch me’ moment. I can’t wait to connect with fans once again and share memories of this album with them. I’m looking forward to seeing people at The Lemon Tree this April.”
With an illustrious career spanning over three decades under her belt, Horse shows no sign of slowing down ‐ if anything, she’s speeding up. Her tour comes as she releases a powerful new single, Leaving.
The defiant new song spells a spectacular resurgence of Horse’s creativity and musical work and screams of an artist who has found strength and a sense of self.
With her much‐anticipated eighth studio album in the works, Horse has undoubtedly found her voice once more. And what a voice it is. Deemed ‘One of Britain’s finest singers’ by Q Magazine, her incredible vocal range and its unique texture and tone inspires a raw, emotional response every time.
Signing her first major record deal in the 80s, Horse has toured with Tina Turner and BB King and performed alongside or opened for Robbie Williams, Bryan Ferry, Sir Ian McKellen, Pet Shop Boys, Culture Club and many more.
One of her best‐known songs, Careful, was covered by Will Young and she has produced everything from a live show recording that saw the Scottish Chamber Orchestra play Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom for the first time, to an award‐winning Edinburgh Festival Fringe play.
