Dumfries Music Conference present SAY Award Winner Kathryn Joseph live at The Brigend Theatre, Dumfries.

With support from Zoë Bestel.

Dumfries Music Conference 2019 is proud to present one of Scotland’s most talked about and celebrated musical artists in one of Dumfries’ most intimate and unique venues, The Brigend Theatre.

‘Joseph can sing about the deepest and most cavernous emotions to the most claustrophobic and cloying with the fragile beauty of a songbird and the raw natural power of towering North Sea waves; sometimes all at once…’ (The Skinny)

Featuring support from one of the region’s finest singer/songwriters, Zoe Bestel. Poignant melodies, ethereal vocals and stirring lyrics. Bestel's live performances leave audiences spellbound with an evocative and captivating repertoire of songs from the dark heart of Galloway.

From When I Wake The Want Is

Released earlier this year via Rock Action, from when i wake the want is is a devastating document of love, loss and hope and the follow-up to Kathryn’s SAY Award winning debut album bones you have thrown me, and blood i have spilled. The record was hailed as “possibly the best album we’ll hear all year” by Clash and “raw and uncompromising, and as true as a diary” by Uncut and was chosen as Album of the Day on BBC Radio 6 Music. ‘Mountain’ taken from the album is currently on the BBC Radio 6 Music playlist.
