"Kirsty Merryn is a folk singer and composer of extraordinary skill.... destined to be a big star. ****" - Sunday Express

Kirsty Merryn is one of the most unique singer songwriters on the UK folk roots scene, performing original and traditional songs on piano and voice. Kirsty's music is heavily anchored in the folk tradition, with jazz and classical influences. She weaves a spell over the audience as she tells stories via piano-based songs with sharply observed lyrics, and delivered in crystal clear, soaring vocals.

In 2020 Kirsty will be releasing her highly anticipated second album, "Our Bright Night"; tales of the supernatural, the dying of the light and of the land. Its a reflection on our relationship with the world we live in, both real and imagined, and the way in which ignorance to social issues can result in devastating results. It takes full advantage of Kirsty's pure voice and deft piano skills, placing the piano firmly at the centre of the songs. There are guest appearances from folk legends Phil Beer (Show of Hands) who provides violin on opening track "The Bands of the Sweet Primroses" and Sam Kelly who joins Kirsty to perform a duet on track "Shanklin Chine."
