Kirsty is making a very welcome return. She was one of the first musicians to ever play at Upfront and she has returned several times. This occasion will be part of her 2019 Tour with fellow singer songwriter Ben Bedford, from America. “A couple of years ago, at 3 in the morning, two songwriters collided in a seventh floor corridor at the Crown Westin Hotel, Kansas City Missouri. One was noticeable for his large beard and the other was a woman carrying a saw. This year, for the first time and for a limited run of shows, these two artists Kirsty McGee (UK) and Ben Bedford (US) will be touring and collaborating together.”. Kisty’s 8th album will also be released in October. You can expect an intimate & memorable live show with tales from both sides of the Atlantic, soft voices & delicate guitar work. The two songwriters will work together onstage weaving voices, guitars, bass flute & musical saw.
Kirsty McGee – “Haunting, stimulating but always genre-defying…a level of lyrical insight and timeless imagery that belies its 21st century creation…A film-noir album of blues, jazz, folk and retro shuffles. Classy.” **** R2
Ben Bedford – 2018 Kerrville New Folk Winner “Certainly one of the best young singer songwriters working today.” Rob Adams, The Herald, Scotland.
