Roddy will be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of his debut solo album ‘My Secret is my Silence’ with this special UK tour. The album debuted at number 1 in the UK folk charts back in 2006 and was highly praised with a 5* review in the Sunday Times. It was through word of mouth though that the album became something of a ‘cult classic’. Naturally, the album will feature in the night's show alongside some of his other work.
‘…I’m really excited to play through My secret is my Silence with the band - I always view songs as evolving things, so it’ll be interesting to see how they sound on stage 10 years later - the last time some of these songs were sung was the day they were recorded’ - Roddy Woomble
