DIY Baroque Folk with promises of both poetry and nudity. Dominic Waxing Lyrical has made his mark on the Scottish music scene in various interesting ways including touring the Union Canal in a barge (a lovely, logical idea – The Scotsman) and by getting arrested for performing above Ladbrokes on the Royal Mile.

Championed by John Cavanagh and John Peel, Classics Unwrapped, Jonathan Richman and Lauren Laverne and currently signed to Tenement Records, Dominic Waxing Lyrical started his musical life in the heady days of the 90s. With an 18 year gap between his first and second album he is now speeding along like nobody’s business, having produced 3 albums in the last 4 years.

Described as Talking Heads-esque post-punk by The List, he currently performs with Mr McFall’s Chamber and the band Aberfeldy and they’ve just recorded their 4th album in Indiana. An avid commentator on both the social and human condition, with echoes of Leonard Cohen, The Smiths and Wreckless Eric (The Herald) Dominic Waxing Lyrical is the nip of whiskey that takes the edge off. Come and partake at this year’s World Ceilidh!
