An Acoustic Matinée performance presented by Tay Acoustic at the award winning Larick Centre, Tayport with Kim Edgar.

Fuelled by a passion for social justice, folklore, and feminism, Edinburgh based folk-pop singer songwriter and guitarist 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.

Described as: "Probably one of the best songwriters in Britain today" Edinburgh based Kim Edgar has carved out an acclaimed solo career, as well as being part of the much lauded The Burns Unit and Germany based folk band Cara.

With four critically acclaimed solo albums under her belt, Kim has been described as “an example of everything that’s great about contemporary music” She’s currently working on Consequences, a new album of 12 song collaborations, supported by Creative Scotland, and has worked with a range of songwriters she admires, once a month since October 2021, including Ron Sexsmith, Boo Hewerdine and Horse McDonald.

“Extraordinarily original” (Spiral Earth)
“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)
“(Her music is) a comfort blanket for the disillusioned soul” (The BIG Issue)

Kim sang at the opening of the Scottish Parliament.

Kim is also the musical director of the BIG Project Youth Choir who sang at the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony in London and the Freedom of Mind Community Choir.

The café at The Larick Centre will be selling food, snacks, cakes, coffee & tea, and non-alcoholic refreshments.
