Kirsten Adamson added to Horse concert bill at FRETS – Fri 19th May, the Strathaven Hotel.



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. 

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. 

In a reflective mood, she’s just released a new solo LP, Landing Place, launched to a sold out audience at Scotland’s prestigious Celtic Connections in January. She will be on the road in spring for a U.K tour. 

One thought on “Kirsten Adamson added to Horse concert bill at FRETS – Fri 19th May, the Strathaven Hotel.

  1. Excellent, I purchased an online gig recently with Kirsten and her guest Jill Jackson…..superb vocals from both.
    Great double act, would love to see that at Strathaven.
