Wednesday night saw the final night of Emma’s Atoms tour reach Glasgow’s Hug and Pint venue.
Supporting Emma tonight was Bishopbriggs songstress Katee Kross and the Amberjax. As people who read my reviews know that I’m a great supporter of Katee and her music.
Katee along with her usual bandmates Ross and Tommy were joined on stage by new band member Rachel (on fiddle and backing vocals) and supplied a brilliant set of tracks taken from her ever growing catalogue along with a couple of covers.
Approximately 30 minutes of fantastic music and singing which culminated with the final song in the set with just Katee and Ross on stage doing a 1st class cover of Willie Nelsons “Pancho and Lefty” which the crowd gave a resounding thumbs up to.
For fans who have yet to hear Katee her music can be found on all the usual platforms with gigs tour dates on her website www.kateekross.com.
Emma then took to the stage with her 2 cohorts Sam and Sam and produced a tremendous night of music, song and chat, again with some older tracks and covers mixed with songs from her new album “Atoms”.
Switching between acoustic guitar and ukulele for her set Emma also involved the audience as often as she could and had a wee singing competition going between the audience and the 2 Sam’s with her memory game at the end of one of her songs. Some of the audience got to level 4 defeating both the guys. (I got to level 1)
I particularly love her track “Shoot The Breeze With Me” which seems to be a great crowd pleaser to most.
Having suffered like many others at the demise of Pledge Music I am pleased Emma has managed to get her album to release and wish her success with it.
