My featured guest on our Scottish-themed 8th episode of Spirit and Roots was the fantastic Stagg. Here he is performing the track, ‘Evergreen,’ for us live in the studio.

We had a great chat discussing his busking days in Canada and the influence of both traditional and pop influences, like The Smiths and Pet Shop Boys, on his writing.
