WHEN Highland singer-songwriter Josephine Sillars debuted her show Ripped From The Wire Spine at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015, it sold out its run.

More than 18 months and several festival appearances later, the show has since been developed and reworked to hone its coming-of-age narrative of a young musician from the Highlands navigating adulthood and the music scene in the central belt while trying to balance a business head with a creative heart.

It combines music, spoken word, poetry from Ross McFarlane and filmed interviews with seasoned artists Rachel Sermanni and Emma Pollock and spirited new bucks Declan Welsh, Emme Woods and Chrissy Barnacle.

Coming just weeks after the release of single Problems With Power, an arresting, semi a cappella track which sees Sillars abandoning her piano to pit her vocals against the thudding percussion of Samuel Barnfather, this show will feature support from Emily Elver and Bella And The Bear.
