Kirsty Merryn is one of the most arresting new young singer songwriters on the UK folk roots scene, with a style uniquely her own.
London-based and New Forest-born Kirsty will launch her debut album She And I at London’s Union Chapel on November 9 whilst supporting Show of Hands on their UK Cathedrals tour (Oct 4-Nov 31).
Produced by in-demand Gerry Diver, the album focuses on the diverse stories of inspirational women in history – from Emma Hamilton to Annie Edson Taylor – the first person to survive going over Niagara Falls in a barrel! The sharply observed piano-based narrative songs include the beguiling Forfarshire about lighthouse keeper’s daughter Grace Darling and her heroic rescue of shipwrecked mariners. She is joined on the haunting song by Steve Knightley on guest vocals while BBC Folk Awards double nominee Luke Jackson also guests on the album on the song Delilah and Samson.
