One of Scotland's finest singer-songwriters, Edinburgh singer and songwriter Adam Holmes four albums, Heirs and Graces, Brighter Still, Midnight Milk and Dreamweaver have cast an impressive shadow across the UK Folk Scene and gained him Scottish Album of the Year Nominations (in 2014, 2017 and 2018) and BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Nominations.

Adam first picked up the skill of learning music by ear at one of the liveliest, smokiest and most famous Folk music pubs in Britain, Sandy Bells. An eight year old child perched at the edge of the bar to get the best view of many of Scotland's best folk singers and musicians. Adam crafts lyrics that resonate like old folk songs, set to melodies rooted in the haunting slow airs and church hymns that echoed throughout his childhood. 2022 sees Adam look back over his 10 years as a singer-songwriter, exploring the music in a raw stripped back setting. 

Channeling the music of her ancestors through her deep rooted Irish traditional fiddling & bilingual song, Clare Sands is a unique force in Irish music. A sixth generation fearless feisty fiddler, the singer-songwriter & multi-instrumentalist is breaking the boundaries of Irish Music. She makes pulsating Folk music, infused with a myriad of influences from around the world to create an invigorating new sound, for the young and the old, brave and the bold.
