Kit’s trademark sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing have wowed audiences across the UK through extensive touring with guitar hero, John Etheridge.  “A welcome curiosity, with a style that skips cheerfully across boundaries” said The Guardian when reviewing Kit’s unique blend of rootsy-blues and folk.

The Observer described her music as “Macy Gray meets Nick Drake”, and both Bob Harris and Andy Kershaw has featured her on their BBC shows.

Her recent concerts include: Paul McCartney’s LIPA; the Anne Frank Awards at the BBC; a performance for Bill Bryson and Andy Kershaw and a headline show at the International Guitar Festival of Great Britain.

Kit’s third album, Driving into the Blue, was met with high critical acclaim and features the legendary double bass player Danny Thompson.

Expect an enthralling and energetic live performance of blues-driven roots with a soul sensibility.
