Gravel-voiced Scot makes a plausible case for his Meltdown inclusion

Paolo Nutini: 'His rootsy music comes from somewhere deep within him'
Earlier this week, when the line-up for Richard Thompson’s Meltdown festival was announced, one name in particular will surely have raised a few eyebrows: Paolo Nutini.
