The past week or so has been a good one for singer songwriters in this part of the world.
We've had Karine Polwart at the Robin and now Amy Wadge making a welcome appearance at The Glee Club, the first of 11 dates to promote her new album No Sudden Moves.
Playing to an audience of about 70 or so people, this pocket dynamo of a singer took to the stage and launched into Free Fall from the album.
The next hour or so featured a set made up of both new and old material, all expertly and, at times beautifully, played on guitar and piano. Her voice is nothing short of wonderful ranging from the aching heartbreak of Fifteen Stars, to the bluesy tones on the title track of the album.
What baffles me is where this incredible power and range comes from in a lady who, to say the least, is very slightly built.
Amy has the same feisty attitude as Suzi Quatro and it makes the perfect accompaniment to her material.
She is never still on stage and roams around wringing every ounce of emotion from her voice and her guitars. She openly harbours the ambition of getting around 500 people to each of her gigs in the future and on the evidence of this performance that should be a more than realistic target.
