About Arcade: Heidi Talbot & Adam Holmes

Between them they have been nominated for multiple BBC Folk Awards, SAY awards, Irish music awards and played for First Ministers and US Presidents. Their UK tour comes as they release their debut duo album ‘Face The Fall’ on the 4th of October. The record evokes the restless and classic feeling of Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty, whilst keeping its feet planted in the present day in its rich electronic textures and allegoric content.

Heidi Talbot was born in Ireland, became a folk star in the USA as a member of the Irish American band Cherish the Ladies, and now lives in Edinburgh. With a background like that, it’s hardly surprising she should develop a style that switches easily between Celtic and Americana, but subtlety is Talbot’s magic ingredient.

She has shared the stage and recorded with Mark Knopfler, Graham Coxon (Blur), Eddi Reader, Idlewild, Matt Rollings, King Creosote and Tim O’Brien. Heidi has been nominated for multiple BBC Radio 2 folk awards, Irish Music Awards and Scottish Traditional music awards.

Edinburgh based singer songwriter Adam Holmes with his band The Embers combine the rhythm and blues, country and folk music textures of classic artists such as The Band, Neil Young and Ryan Adams and The Cardinals.

Adam’s musical education began in the infamous folk clubs of Edinburgh taken along by his mother, a huge fan of UK folk music. He witnessed the legendary live sessions that took place. His father’s influence was equally strong, a love of classic American singer songwriters (notably Neil Young and Townes Van Zandt) which he passed onto to his son, now evident in the transatlantic quality to Adam’s music.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Arcade: Heidi Talbot & Adam Holmes are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
