SATURDAY 2ND MARCH 2024
ARC SONGWRITERS (Kate Ellis, My Girl The River & Anna Howie)
Featuring singer songwriters Kate Ellis, My Girl The River and Anna Howie, THE ARC SONGWRITERS perform ‘in the round’ taking it in turns to sing lead vocals on Americana, Roots, Country and Folk songs. The three gifted writers and performers create an intimate atmosphere singing their own songs and others by the likes of Nanci Griffiths and Emmylou Harris.
Kate Ellis/s southern country-folk roots come from her father who was an important musical influence. Kate’s emotional and seductive vocals take you into a world of private beauty, reflections, and feelings. Her music is always intimate and evocative. You listen and want to be there.
My Girl The River is mainly the work of Kris Wilkinson Hughes. Hailing from Southern Louisiana, and after spending many years in Nashville, she relocated to the UK (much the same as Kate), bringing her incredibly rich ‘sugared espresso’ vocals to her memorable songwriting style. Compared to Lucinda Williams and Jason Isbell, Kris weaves a rich tapestry of words and melodies, bringing the listener a world of different emotions.
Anna Howie is the British writer joining the two American ladies. Anna has a delicate voice yet is able to grab the listener’s full attention. With a writing style crafted from study,with the likes of Gretchen Peters, Anna truly gets to the heart of the matter. From laughing to crying. Anna’s are instantly relatable as they are memorable.
From Louisiana to Nashville to London, the three singers will tell stories and share thought of love and heartbreak to bring us together.
