Yorkston Thorne Khan is an experimental collaborative group that includes James Yorkston one of the most "influential singer/songwriters on the Scottish folk scene, Suhail Yusuf Khan, award winning sarangi player and classical singer from New Delhi, and Jon Thorne, best known as jazz double bass player with electro outfit Lamb.
Playing together as Yorkston / Thorne / Khan, we tackle a wide array of different sounds and songs. Alongside pieces of our own, there's a fair chunk of improvisation, plus traditional songs from Scotland and India. Jon's jazz back-ground definitely comes to the fore, as does Suhail's devotional singing and outstanding sarangi playing. I just do my best to keep up James Yorkston
Yorkston / Thorne / Khan are currently preparing their debut album for Domino Records.
