Throughout his career Pictish Trail – aka Johnny Lynch – has resolutely furrowed his own path, steadily creating a unique catalogue of recordings and performances through his own labels (Lost Map / Fence Records) while eschewing the blueprint of the predictable singer-songwriter in favour of something untidily intriguing. Born out of a compulsion to make infectious, melody driven music from a treasure trove of secret sounds, Pictish Trail’s spectral songs are filtered through a sun-warped pop lens, where heart-pumping guitar shriek-outs collide with sampled gurgles and fractured lyrics figure-skate over sine-waves of glacial synth.

The remote Isle of Eigg, located within the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, is home to the country’s most innovative DIY label and music collective, Lost Map. Every two years, the island hosts a mini-festival known as ‘Howlin’ Fling!’, where acts from the label roster, good pals, and special guests perform in front of an audience looking to lose themselves in music.

For Burns&Beyond, Lost Map’s boss Pictish Trail will curate a recreation of their biennial bash, transforming a secret venue in Edinburgh into Eigg’s legendary ceilidh hall, for an evening of sonic exploration and Highland hospitality.

Pictish is currently working on brand new material due for release in 2019. Burns&Beyond will be the first chance to hear some of these new songs …
