After 2018’s performances of John Martyn's Solid Air and Joni Mitchell's Court and Spark, the same Start to End crew - Craig McMahon and Martin Johnston of Pronto Mama, and Admiral Fallow’s Joe Rattray - tackle Van Morrison’s seminal second album, following its 50th anniversary in 2018. An eight-track song-cycle framed in a freewheeling mix of folk, jazz and blues, Astral Weeks is also revered for its haunting evocation of Morrison’s Belfast youth, in stream-of-consciousness lyrics he’s described as “poetry and mythical musings channelled from my imagination”. Powerhouse vocalist Sam West steps up to channel the Man himself, fronting a full band line-up of leading young Scottish musicians.
