Yoko Pwno’s twisted, irreverent take on Scottish folk music brings joyful, louder-than-life energy to the party whenever they play. Formed in Edinburgh in 2013, the band performed at raves in the caverns beneath the city’s historic Old Town before graduating to a residency at legendary venue Studio 24, opening for world famous trad acts like Shooglenifty and The Treacherous Orchestra. Since then Yoko Pwno have become regulars on Scotland’s festival circuit, releasing debut album ‘Artefacts’ in 2019.
