Horse is an iconic and utterly unique singer/songwriter, her voice described as a finely honed instrument, together with breathtaking stagecraft. Her music is both moving and uplifting, the audience totally absorbed whenever she performs.
With a successful career expanding over three decades, she has opened for and toured with several international artists including Tina Turner, BB King, Bryan Ferry, Burt Bacarach, (as well as touring in her own right.) One of her best known songs Careful, was covered by Will Young.
A unique opportunity to see Horse up close at the Hac.

Hailed by critics as “genius” and his solo show as “an enchanting delight.” The BBC award-winning folk musician and singer songwriter offers an intriguingly varied solo show of smart new songs and tunes. A wide rage of song topics are explored via masterful acoustic music encompassing humble woodnotes to syrupy synthesized twists.
A salutatory reminder that folk music can be inspirational, comforting even and needn’t be the preserve of the exponents of it’s authenticity. Daniels has designed and built his electrophon machine which combines Victorian engineering with digital samples and specially manufactured steel discs with which Luke plays guitar, piano, melodeon and vocals.

The book café takes place in the relaxing surroundings of the hacbar. If you want to get hold of new books, take the pain out of choosing a good read or simply meet new people, then why not pop along.
Our ever-changing exhibition programme presents a range of traditional and contemporary work by up and coming Scottish artists.
Nordic House was first unveiled in July 2015 at the Storytelling Centre on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. Exploring the links between Scotland and the Nordic nations, it showcases wild Arctic seascapes, Icelandic lava fields, Denmark’s oldest allotment gardens, women fishing on the Baltic, and a subsidence-threatened Swedish mining town.
The exhibition’s Director, award-winning journalist, commentator and broadcaster Lesley Riddoch, is a great admirer of the Nordic way of life. “As I have travelled around the Nordic nations looking for insights about their politics and ways of life, I’ve been hugely impressed by their easy relationship with nature and the way that is represented in art. This exhibition is just a small selection – but I think these artworks from 5 northern seafaring nations will speak to most Scots.”
