Based in Aberdeen, Kitchen Cynics has been highly productive since the early 1980s. The project began as the home-recording project of Alan Davidson. Since then over a hundred releases have surfaced, mostly on tape & cdr, but also on vinyl, thanks to various labels in different parts of the world. Live gigs didn’t happen until the early 2000s, but luckily concerts have been frequent in recent years. Kitchen Cynics has supported artists, such as the Incredible String Band, Julian Cope and Tom Rapp (with whom he has even sung on stage). Alan also plays and records as one half of Barrett’s Dottled Beauty with Gayle Brogan (Pefkin, Burd Ellen), and has recently released an album with Grey Malkin (The Hare and The Moon). We’re honoured to present this underground legend of Scottish folk music on this year’s Fanø Free Folk Festival!
