Scottish singer-songwriter and guitarist Adam Beattie will perform at The Courtyard this June.
Adam Beattie has become a celebrated artist of the London scene and has released 5 solo self-penned albums. Having roots in Scottish folk music, as well as a lifelong interest in old time jazz and blues, Adam’s music is held together by his distinctive voice, narrative lyrics and fingerstyle guitar.
Over his years of extensive European touring and festival appearances, Adam has played opening shows for many of his musical heroes including Bert Jansch, Jolie Holland and Sean Hayes. As a multi-instrumentalist accompanist, he has also played guitar and bass for global singer-songwriter star Birdy and 60’s star Lulu.
Beattie has recently released his brand-new solo album Somewhere Round The Bend on 12″ and CD which has received praise from the likes of Mojo Magazine, Line Of Best Fit and Loud And Quiet Magazine. The album was also championed by BBC Radio Scotland presenter Roddy Hart, who featured it as his ‘Record of Note’ and invited Adam to speak on the show and curate a selection of songs as his ‘Me-In-3’ guest.
Somewhere Round The Bend came fresh off the back of his Rough Trade release with PicaPica, a collaboration album with Grammy nominated producer Sonny Johns, BBC Folk Singer Of The Year Josienne Clarke, and singer-songwriter Samantha Whates, as well as his Scottish supergroup Band Of Burns’ latest release being named ‘Album Of The Month’ in Mojo (4 stars) and BBC Music Magazine (5 stars).
After four studio albums collaborating with notable producers, this new record sees Beattie at the helm for the first time, on fire as a multi-instrumentalist, arranger and producer.
Adam Beattie will be in The Courtyard’s Studio Theatre on Thursday 22 June at 7.45pm. To book tickets, or for more information contact the Box Office on 01432 340555 or visit www.courtyard.org.uk.
