A regular night held by the Talented Singer songwriter Lorna Brooks. Joined on this Occasion by Amy Duncan another talented singer songwriter.
Nowadays it is a rare thing indeed to find a voice that has character and is unmistakeable as the artist- Lorna is such a rarity. Her records have been described as ‘songs of beauty, distinction and subtlety shot through with fragility and delicacy’ Musician Magazine
But it’s the bluesy grit and determination in her songs that have attracted some truly legendary artists to work with her like Loudon Wainwright III, Janis Ian, Martin Stephenson, James Grant, BertJansch, John Martyn, Jimmy Somerville , Eric Bibb and Eleanor McEvoy to name but a few
She is no slouch when it comes to touring either…. She has toured Europe and the UK extensively, often with a full band and more recently acoustically stripped back ( arguably the best way to hear and enjoy her performance) with simply guitar and voice. She is about to embark on some dates with a more residential feel, as ‘Lorna PLUS’ during which she will highlight some new material and some old favourites with guest appearances.
AMY DUNCAN is a solo music artist who writes emotive songs, combining intimate lyrics with acoustic guitar loops and instrumental textures. Working with one of Scotland’s finest producers Calum Malcolm (Prefab Sprout, The Blue Nile) led to Amy’s 4th album Cycles of Life being released on Linn Records in 2013 and since then she has gone on to record a further 2 albums with him ‘Undercurrents’ (2016) and ‘Antidote’ (2017).
