“Hollinrake’s voice captivates, a Sandy Denny for a new century” - For Folk's Sake

Inspired by English and Appalachian folk blended with alternative pop music, Amy Hollinrake draws on women’s stories within folklore and mythology and fuses them with a contemporary sound placing her at the forefront of the new era of feminist neo-folk.

Her recent EP 'Sad Lady Songs Vol.1. reimagines traditional folk songs and tales, combining them with dulcimers and synthesizers to create a head spinning mix of yesterday and today.

She has garnered attention from the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Marc Riley and Tom Robinson, BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour. She also gained prestigious awards from EFDSS, Help Musicians and the Bert Jansch Foundation for her work, and recently appeared on projects for Disney (The Little Mermaid), 20th Century Fox (The Boogyman), and Don Broco.

Hollinrake is also the founder of project Loathly Lady, a creative feminist cataloguing project exploring gendered narratives in traditional music.

Amy Hollinrake is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.

The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council.
