Adam Holmes and Friends
  • Edinburgh Fringe

One of the brightest rising stars on the Scottish music scene, 23-year-old singer/songwriter Adam Holmes, with special guests. Holmes crafts lyrics that resonate like old folk songs, set to melodies rooted in haunting slow airs, mixing trad, folk and Americana. John Martyn's strum and sting, laced with a slice of Paolo Nutini soul and a touch of traditional folk. A multiple awards finalist (including BBC Young Folk Award), his debut CD Heirs and Graces was produced by music legend John Wood and was nominated for Scottish Album of the Year award 2014.
