Scotland’s Rising Star Kim Edgar to Perform at The Met

The Met welcomes Scotland’s ‘very own Tori Amos’, Kim Edgar on Friday 22 March at 8pm.

A warm, engaging performer, Edinburgh-based songwriter Kim Edgar’s songs cover abandonment, concealment and sexual politics on piano, guitar and voice, Kim follows the folk tradition of documenting love, mortality and social issues. She combines “narratives of courageous honesty with darkly delicious melodies” (Spiral Earth), crafting songs which are “strangely uplifting, despite the well-phrased, sombre lyrics” (The BIG Issue). Her intensity and intimacy in performance have attracted five star reviews, and led to her being described as Scotland’s “very own Tori Amos” (Sunday Herald).

 

Kim tours as a solo artist, and also as a member of genre-hopping collective The Burns Unit, with recent performances at Cambridge Folk Festival, on Later With Jools Holland, and for HRH The Queen, with band mate Karine Polwart.

 

“An inspired empathy…her gentle personality and relaxed interaction would melt the stoniest of hearts…an artist clearly at the top of her game.” ***** Fringe Review
