Scottish Album of the Year 2017 nominee Adam Holmes and The Embers plus Rachel Sermanni are set to bring their distinctive and carefully-crafted songs to CatStrand at 10 in an intimate setting that will showcase their undoubted talents perfectly. Adam’s new, nine-song album Brighter Still is released in June 2017, and more haunting melodies and thoughtful lyrics can be expected in his engaging mix of Celtic soul and a touch of traditional folk.
Rachel has rightly won admirers at home and abroad for her graceful music, which has been described as folk-noir. She writes and performs gently and with elegance, and her current digital EP, Gently is of a special, soft and collaborative nature. This is a terrific double bill of Americana featuring top, critically-acclaimed Scots talents.
