This September we are proud to host 3 songwriters from the fair country of Scotland! This is sure to be a wonderful evening of folk and americana music, washed down (at your own discretion of course) with a wee dram of whisky (aka scotch to our American friends). This is a non-ticketed event.
Glasgow based singer-songwriter John Rush, with his ‘folk tinged pop songs’ has played some of Glasgow greatest venues including King Tuts, The o2 Academy, Barrowlands and the Royal Concert Hall.
Through the years he’s racked up some highly acclaimed support slots with Ocean Colour Scene, Mark Morris and Paul Weller.
John is no stranger to New York having showcased “The Anna E.P” here in 2014 and we are delighted to have him as part of the NYAC family.
He may call Hudson home, but Lorkin O’Reilly’s music exudes the Scottish terrain from whence he recently came with naught but a guitar on his back, a head full of song, and hands schooled in UK folk avatars John Martyn and Nick Drake.
Hailing originally from Edinburgh, this americana/country songstress now calls New York her home. Following her recent albums going from strength to strength and gaining fans in the UK and beyond, she is in the big apple writing, performing, and has recently been recording her new EP in Nashville at Zac Brown’s studio, Southern Ground.
Steph met Siobahn and then Angela and wanted to put together a songwriters circle to give an audience a chance to get closer to the creative process and create a space for artists to come together in a community. They performed together at Dixon Place in New York and thus the Artist Collective was born!
