FRIDAY 6TH OCTOBER 2023
Fuelled by a passion for social justice, folklore, and feminism, Edinburgh based folk-pop singer songwriter Kim Edgar crafts keenly observed details of people’s lives into “imaginatively and beautifully crafted songs” (Maverick) that reach out and touch listeners.
Emotion and connection are at the heart of this Edinburgh-based pianist and songwriter’s work: through observed and lived experiences, Kim ponders what it is to be human, creating stories told with honesty and empathy that open hearts, minds and discussions. Her intensity and intimacy in performance have also attracted glowing reviews:
“Heart stopping...our very own Tori Amos” (Sunday Herald)
“Intense and thought provoking” (The List)
“very moving, literate, allusive and expressively sung” * * * * * (Scotland On Sunday)
With five critically acclaimed solo albums under her belt, Kim has been described as “an example of everything that’s great about contemporary music” and “probably one of the best songwriters in Britain today.” * * * * * (Spiral Earth). Kim’s latest album, CONSEQUENCES (2023), an album of 12 collaborations with songwriters she admires, including Ron Sexsmith, Rachel Sermanni, Boo Hewerdine and Horse McDonald, has been described as “diverse, satisfying and sumptuous” and “a persuasive exploration of human interconnectedness amid an uncertain world” (The Scotsman). CONSEQUENCES was launched at Celtic Connections 2023.
