Since making the final of the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year, multi-instrumentalist Amy Papiransky has continued to carve her name in the Scottish music scene. She is regarded as a shining prospect in both folk and pop worlds, and seen to be one to watch by luminaries such as KT Tunstall and Roddy Hart.
Hailing from a Trad song background in Keith, but now residing in Glasgow, Papiransky came to prominence with her contemporary and jazz influenced debut album Read Me Write in 2019. Amy has been writing and recording her own material for the last eight years. A classically trained and infinitely talented multi-instrumentalist with folk roots, Amy has toured in Canada, America, Ireland and Germany and played at the prominent Lotus Temple in New Delhi. She has also performed live on BBC Radio Scotland’s Hogmanay Show, at BBC Proms in the Park and Roddy Hart’s BBC Quay Sessions. Amy will be accompanied by Graham Rorie (fiddle and tenor guitar), Lyle Watt (guitar) and Angus Lyon (keyboard).
A young woman with plenty to say, Amy has carefully crafted mellow, uplifting pop songs and effortless ballads which tell tales of love, loss, heartbreak and strength.
