Doors Open: 7.00pm Show Starts: 7.30pm.

Singer/songwriter Kirsten Adamson summons the same heart-stopping purity as Sandy Denny, by way of Emmylou Harris and Kate Bush. Transcendence runs in the family. Her father was Stuart Adamson (Skids, Big Country) and her mother Alexandra, a champion Highland dancer.

“One minute she’s belting out her home grown country-soul laments with a voice that recalls Lone Justice era Maria McKee tempered with the bottle blonde wisdom of Dolly Parton!” (The Herald)

With summers spent soaking up the atmosphere in Nashville with her dad and a string of leading roles in musical theatre back in the UK, the teenage Adamson’s course was set. She sang backing vocals on Big Country’s last album Driving to Damascus at age 13. By 2010, she was forging her own career as a vocalist and keyboard player for indie-folkers Aberfeldy. She fronted country rockers The Gillyflowers and more recently shone as half of alt-country duo The Marriage, and then on a self-titled solo debut. The austere beauty of her voice has been a constant motif.

“This debut is a beautifully put together, inspired piece of heartfelt songs that will really make you listen!” (The Edinburgh Reporter)
