James Yorkston: Luminaire, London

Tim Cooper, The Independent, 28 December 2005

"HERE'S THE NEXT number," announces James Yorkston, studying a piece of paper: "Three hundred and fifty-eight." Few singers would draw the raffle mid-set, but it's entirely in character for a performer whose unassuming, natural rapport is at the heart of his appeal.

Total word count of piece: 427
