Amelia Coburn plus support
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Having spent the past few years studying and travelling and playing around the world it's time for the BBC Young Folk Awards nominee to devote her time to what she does best and deliver on her promise. Evolving from her roots as a purely covers artists (but what covers! (Life On Mars, Ghost Town, Wuthering Heights) she is moving into the realms of a classic songwriter. Her evocative, poetic and beguiling original material seems to come from some mystical wellspring of cosmic music.
With a voice set to stun and a gift for interpretation that is second to none, Amelia Coburn spends every spare moment rifling through records and filtering the findings through her punky ukulele playing to wow audiences across the North East and increasingly beyond. Think Eva Cassidy if she had spent the whole of 1976 in CBGBs. To categorise what she plays would be futile but her main influences range from classic, sophisticated pop/rock (David Bowie, Kate Bush, early Elton John) through to Punk, New Wave and the first wave of Indie music (The Smiths, The Jam, Blondie) but she is constantly seeking out hidden gems to drop like bombs on her audiences.
