Award-winning singer/songwriter Kirsten Adamson (daughter of rock legend Stuart Adamson (Big Country, Skids)) summons the same heart-stopping purity as Sandy Denny, by way of Emmylou Harris and Kate Bush. Since spending summers soaking up the atmosphere in Nashville with her dad, and singing on Big Country’s Driving To Damascus album, Kirsten has been steadily developing her own voice and songwriting, with indie folkers Aberfeldy, country rockers The Gillyflowers and Americana duo The Marriage.
Her second solo album Landing Place (2023) is a glorious powerhouse of emotionally charged, beautifully delivered songs that bustles and glistens with echoes of folk rock and country gems. It was launched at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections, an official showcase at London’s UK Americana Music Festival and a sold out UK tour in April.
Adamson is joined by her dynamic band The Tanagers for this special show. Richard Anderson (bass), Scott Forsyth (drums) and Jon Mackenzie (electric guitar) are drawn together by their love of harmonies and old-time Americana providing the perfect outfit for Adamson’s country/folk style.
Adamson and the band will be showcasing emotionally charged songs from her new album, Landing Place.
