An evening of exceptional acoustic music from 3 fantastic artists:
Gorgeous harmonies and timeless songs. Americana duo Kirsten Adamson and Dave Burn evoke the great female/male duos of the past: Glen Campbell and Bobbie Gentry, Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons, and more recently Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings. With just their entwined voices, acoustic guitars and little else, songs don't come much simpler, more direct, yet so beautifully executed. This Marriage is truly made in heaven.
Luke James Williams
In November 2018, Luke James Williams released his debut EP Drove. The first single, 'Rabbit Hole', received airplay on BBC6 Music, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing, whilst other cuts from the EP have been featured and played by Folk Radio UK and Hype Machine. Second single 'Still In Bed' has received huge support from BBC6 Music DJ Tom Robinson, who chose it as one of his 6Music Recommends Tracks of 2019. It has subsequently been played across the station by Tom Ravenscroft, Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq. The song has also attracted a large listenership on Spotify with over 58,000 streams on the platform. Luke has received rave reviews for his engaging and emotive live performances and has supported artists such as Stu Larsen, Kirsty Merryn, Mark Chadwick (Levellers), The Little Unsaid and Megson. Drawing influences from the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Nick Drake and PJ Harvey, Williams paints pictures with words and sings them in his own distinctly British voice.
MOMO (Morven Warren-McArdle)
MOMO (Morven Warren-McArdle) is a Scottish singer-songwriter whose melancholic melodies are reminiscent of Gabrielle Aplin, Pheobe Bridgers and folk musicians Adam Holmes and Rachel Sermanni. She recently released her debut single 'Amsterdam' and has just moved to Glasgow to continue her musical education at the Conservatoire of Scotland. This classical background gives her a unique, genre-defying sound.
