Amelia Coburn

Stage 2 • Friday

With her trusted ukulele, a gift for interpretation and a unique voice that combines folk, jazz and musical theatre elements with an expressive quality that can beguile even the most rowdy of audiences, Young Folk Awards nominee Amelia Coburn, 19, has already carved out a legendary status in her native Teesside, selling out solo shows in increasingly large venues. Building her reputation, primarily, on her playful, yet exquisite, take on New Wave, Indie and classic, arty rock songs by such acts as The Smiths, Bowie, Kate Bush and The Specials, her appeal is only set to increase as she has begun to perform mesmerising original material in a more European, folk-based style.
