Scottish singer-songwriter, Horse McDonald, is to take her award-winning one-woman play, Careful, on the road for a Scottish spring tour.

First performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016, this poignant and compelling autobiographical story of her triumph over adversity through music, is collaboratively written with writer and comedian Lynn Ferguson, directed by Maggie Kinloch and produced by The Gilded Balloon.

It will tour to 18 venues throughout Scotland from Thursday, March 16 to Saturday, May 27 and kicks it off at Eastwood Park Theatre on the 16th.

After each performance, Horse will be joined on stage by director Maggie Kinloch for an intimate, ‘audience with’ Q&A session. For her music fans, Horse will also weave into the second half of the evening a small selection of her favourite songs from her illustrious career, prompted by the evening’s questions.

Horse takes to the stage as an admirably frank and engaging teller of her own touching story of survival, from wearing two-tone velvet loons to becoming one of Scotland’s most celebrated singers; painting a vivid and powerful picture of those times when she had to be... Careful.

Horse is iconic. She has few peers, utterly unique, with breath-taking stagecraft. Her voice is a ‘finely honed instrument’.

Since her studio debut in 1989 with single, You Could Be Forgiven, Horse’s power to reinvent and advance her musical style and prowess has been unshakable.

She has released nine albums including The Same Sky and God’s Home Movie. As well as touring in her own right, she has toured with international artists like Tina Turner, BB King, Bryan Ferry and Burt Bacharach.
