Providing fresh perspectives on visual art, Festival Detours is a series of intimate live performances in Edinburgh’s leading galleries by stars from the worlds of music, comedy, theatre, poetry and prose. Each year we invite performers to respond in their own particular way to their favourite artworks featured in the Edinburgh Art Festival programme.

Scott Hutchison is the singer and songwriter for the band Frightened Rabbit. For this performance, Scott and band member Grant, wrote and performed a one-off set in response to the work of the artists ~ in the fields at New Media Scotland. Inspired by notions of the Scottish landscape and the environmental impact of consumer waste, ~ in the fields' exhibition includes works which re-invent antiquated ways of viewing the world.

Festival Detours is produced by Trigger and commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival. This film is by Precious Productions.
