Macy Gray meets Nick Drake' (The Observer). Much championed by guitarist John Etheridge, singer-songwriter Kit Holmes is a rising star of the acoustic music scene, her trademark sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing having wowed audiences across the UK.


Here, Kit is joined by guitarist Al Greenwood for an enthralling, infectious performance of her blues-driven roots-pop (with a soul sensibility). Full of warmth and joie de vivre, and mixing dazzling songs with delightful instrumentals, this is an absolute delight.


Kit Holmes' trademark sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing have wowed audiences across the UK through extensive touring with John Etheridge and John Renbourn. Both Bob Harris and Andy Kershaw have featured her on their BBC shows, and her recent concerts include: the Anne Frank Awards at the BBC, Paul McCartney's LIPA, a performance for Bill Bryson and a headline show at the International Guitar Festival.


'Kit Holmes is that welcome curiosity, a young composer and singer-songwriter with all the makings of a new British guitar heroine and a style that skips cheerfully across boundaries. She mostly plays acoustic guitar but she's certainly no folk singer; her songs are far too pop-influenced. But then she's certainly not a pop artist either, hence her ability to suddenly switch to instrumental pieces that echo anything from folk baroque to flamenco and jazz – after all, she has toured extensively with John Etheridge. Impressive.' The Guardian


Expect an enthralling and energetic live performance of hook laden guitar work straddling the borders between folk and blues and pop, with gorgeous and poignant lyrical songs, absolutely delightful instrumentals and an incredible sense of fun.


'Full of warmth…an absolute delight.' The Observer
