Folk Bands and Artists
Scottish singer songwriter ADAM BEATTIE released his fourth studio album ‘The Road Not Taken’ with a sell-out show at Hoxton Hall in London and a UK-wide tour. The album´s minor ballads and moody blues with a dark twist draw upon the broad influences of Celtic folk, American blues, country and early jazz balladry. Beattie´s beautiful melodies combine with thoughtful lyrics to tackle themes of life, love, death and hope. He was recently invited by Mark Rylance to perform at his Stop The War charity fundraiser, to an intimate audience that included Rylance, Brian Eno and Jeremy Corbyn, and was part of the ´Band of Burns´ ensemble alongside John Langan and Riognach Connolly (The Breath), a hugely successful Burns night celebration at Union Chapel earlier this year.
