Hospitalfield’s Music Room will host talented songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Amy Duncan on Saturday night.

The Edinburgh based musician and performer will be bringing her unique brand of vocals to the stunning venue to give the Arbroath audience a taste of folk.

“It’s great that Amy Duncan is stopping off in Arbroath to bring her beautiful blend of music and outstanding voice to the town – it’s going to be a breathtaking night, as part of her Scottish tour,” said Laura Simpson, Hospitalfield spokesperson.

Amy began her musical career playing double bass with underground punk outfit, Swelling Meg before breaking off to pursue solo projects.

In 2006 her music was discovered on Myspace by US label Plain Recordings. She was promptly signed up and released her debut album ‘Pilgrimage’ later that year.

After releasing a further two albums, ‘Story of a Girl’ in 2007 and ‘Potential-Space’ in 2010, 2013 saw Amy sign with Linn Records to release her fourth, Cycles of Life.

Funded with help from Creative Scotland, it saw her working alongside celebrated producer Calum Malcolm to produce a record of striking warmth and emotion, acclaimed for its melodic vocals and rich sound.

In August last year she was selected to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe as part of the Made in Scotland Showcase.

‘Like other talented female vocalists from Joni Mitchell to Patti Smith, the sheer range and power of Duncan’s vocal apparatus are breathtaking. From the sweetest high notes to the most soulful bass tones, Duncan’s voice evolves through her songs literally before your ears,” said a review by Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange.

The show is from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. and tickets for the show are £8 available from www.hospitalfield.org.uk
