Kirsten Adamson at Quarrymen's Arts Centre
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 now gearing up to release a new solo LP this winter.
Doors open 7pm for a 7:30pm start!
Quarrymen's Arts Centre
A brand new venue in the heart of Galloway, Quarrymen’s Arts Centre provides an intimate, historic setting for a variety of performing arts, attracting both regional and national artists. An impressive, granite-built former church, Quarrymen’s sits proudly above Creetown village, with stunning views across the Cree estuary and Solway coastline. The venue is community owned and recently underwent a full refurbishment to transform the building from a run-down hall to a vibrant, contemporary performing arts venue, with tasteful echoes of its rich quarrying and musical heritage. Quarrymen’s benefits from a state of the art, 80-seat raked seating system in the main auditorium, which can also be retracted to provide a larger floor space, plus a meeting/green room, kitchenette, accessible toilets, external lawn area and car parking. Quarrymen’s Arts Centre is situated in a perfectly rural, thriving community, yet is well-connected by road; only 2 miles off the main trunk road connecting the north of England with west Scotland and the ferries to Northern Ireland.
