Amy Duncan writes diverse songs, from the dark and strange The Severed Head, to the hopeful and positive Steady The Bow. Amy’s signature pure, honest vocals make powerful connections through her recordings and live performances.
Her 4th album Cycles of Life was produced by Calum Malcolm, and released on Linn Records in 2013, and since then, Amy was chosen by Showcase Scotland as one of 2 Scottish acts to perform at the Eastern Canadian Music Alliance (2014) and was part of the Made In Scotland Showcase at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2013 and 2014.
Amy's 5th album Undercurrents (2016) was funded by Creative Scotland and has been highly praised by Bruce Findlay (Simple Minds Manager); the novelist Ian Rankin is also a fan. The album received good reviews, wide BBC Radio play and was recently featured in Folk Radio UK Top Ten Albums of 2016.
This event at the Traverse is the album launch for Amy’s adventurous new release Antidote.
Amy will be performing with her band featuring Fiona Rutherford (harp), Lawrie Macmillan (bass), Liam Saunders (keyboards) and Sue McKenzie (saxophone).
With special guests Rachel Amey (spoken word) and Briggs & Bradley (a new duo comprised of Chris Bradley and Riley Briggs).
