James Yorkston is a Scottish singer-songwriter and guitarist who plays some traditional music and lots of his own songs. He has released 5 critically acclaimed studio albums from 2000's "Moving Up Country" to 2009's "Folk Songs". The Times newspaper in a review of one of Yorkston's records commented "Yorkston has reached a state of grace that writers can spend for ever trying to attain: songs that sound not so much written as carefully retrieved from your own subconscious, played with an intuition bordering on telepathy. What more could you ask for?" In an interview with the Guardian newspaper James attributed the fact that he doesn't look like a typical vegan to 'drinking a lot of beer'.
