The next Letham Nights is just around the corner and yet again we offer you another absolute CRACKER! Because… Kirsten Adamson is back!
Saturday 10th October 2015 8pm
Kirsten Adamson will be showcasing material from her soon-to-be-released, much-anticipated crowd-funded album. From the snippets we have heard it marks a new chapter, and a magnificent one at that, in her development as one of Scotland’s foremost musical talents. Kirsten is a class act and the last time she and her band played Letham the crowd went wild and demanded more, and more again. “You lot are mental” she said. And we were – crazy for her music!
Kirsten comes from an historical musical background in Scotland. Growing up, her two main influences were Kate Bush and her father, Stuart’s band, Big Country. In 1998 her father relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, where she would spend her summers and it was here where she first picked up a guitar. Classically trained in voice from a young age, Kirsten has grown to become a wonderfully diverse singer songwriter and her forthcoming album encompasses her eccentricities with class and originality. She is an undiscovered artist that must be heard!
The new album is simmering nicely but will not quite be ready for October so there will be limited edition EP’s available at the gig and free downloads of the latest single can be streamed up until the show https://soundcloud.com/kirstenadamson/stay-like-this
Support will be provided by talented local boy, Tom Beaver!
Tom is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter and guitarist from Cupar in Fife, whose repertoire includes a mix of atypical covers and self penned songs. These are inspired, among other things, by personal experiences of drinking misadventure, local characters, feelings of isolation and the general oddity of life! His wide variety of musical influences include bands and artists such as Sparklehorse, Camper van Beethoven, J.J. Cale, Modest Mouse, Seasick Steve, Nick Drake and Neil Young.
From a residency in a St Andrews bistro, Tom has moved to play several venues across Scotland, most notably at the Wickerman festival in July. This will be his first appearance at Letham Nights and we can’t wait to hear him! Come along and support him and in the process bag yourself a stonking show!
