Acclaimed Scottish singer-songwriter Adam Beattie and multi-platinum singer-songwriter Fiona Bevan will embark on a double headline tour of the UK and Europe this Summer. 

The gig will take place on Thursday 7 July at 8pm at The Tuppenny - which can be found on Devizes Road in Old Town. 

The two artists are said to compliment each other beautifully and will also perform some duets and collaborations as part of the live show. 

Fiona Bevan is a multi-platinum Canadian-British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, with a sweet, fiery voice and a soulful, cinematic indie folk sound creating startling odysseys that suggest Erykah Badu, Joanna Newsom and Kate Bush spine-tinglingly joined - (The Guardian).

Fiona has just released ‘Faultlines’’, the second single from her new EP this June: https://bit.ly/FaultlinesFi

She has toured Canada with Hawksley Workman, Australia with Busby Marou, and UK/Europe with Ruston Kelly, The Wandering Hearts, Ed Sheeran, Nick Mulvey, John Smith, Ingrid Michaelson, Ryan Keen, and Adam Ant.

Fiona is a hit songwriter for Lewis Capaldi, Aurora, Tom Walker, Kylie Minogue, Mika, Matteo Bocelli, Natalie Imbruglia, Ed Sheeran/One Direction (Little Things), and is the face of Credits Due Campaign working with Abba’s Björn Ulvaeus.

Adam Beattie is a Scottish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has just released his fifth solo album. He writes contemporary Scottish folk songs and also has songs that step into other roots genres. An early break found him supporting Bert Jansch at the O2 ABC, Glasgow.

The press described Adam’s latest album 'Somewhere Round the Bend' as "Stirring Folk Balladry" (Line of Best Fit) and his music has been described as “Incredibly beautiful” (Mary Anne Hobbs BBC 6 Music) and “Fantastic” (Bob Harris BBC Radio 2).

The album was also championed by Roddy Hart, (BBC Radio Scotland) who featured it as his 'Record of Note'.

The release followed his Rough Trade Records debut with PicaPica, and his folk 12-piece ‘Band of Burns’ receiving five stars from BBC Music Magazine.

As a multi-instrumentalist he has accompanied Birdy, Lulu, Michael Chapman and Mikey Kenney and others.
