SOFT sounds at the O2 ABC this week as Newton Faulkner plays the Glasgow leg of a UK and Ireland tour.

The dreadlocked acoustic guitar virtuoso is touring his latest album, Studio Zoo, released in August last year.

It’s an important record to note as Newton made history with it, live streaming the entire recording process 24 hours a day for five weeks from his home studio.

Fans were able to follow the ups, the downs and the guest stars — lending a personal touch to Faulkner’s music.

For those who’ve followed it from studio to disc, it’s bound to be an emotional gig.

Newton Faulkner plays the ABC on Wednesday (Feb 12). Tickets are £19.50.
