This is the third time Scots singer and songwriter Adam Holmes and his band The Embers are guests at Tønder Festival, and there is good cause for the follow-up. 28 year-old Adam Holmes is from Edinburgh, where he earned his spurs on the folk scene. Violin was his first instrument, but guitar, song and songwriting took over. His debut album Heirs and Graces from 2014 had several reviewers comparing him to the late John Martyn, and the album won nominations, among them at The Scots Trad Music Awards. The album was produced by the legendary John Wood, the man behind historic recordings of Sandy Denny, Richard Thompson and Nick Drake. Since then, Adam Holmes has released two albums, Brighter Still (2016) and Midnight Milk (2017), and the EP The Midnight Hour (2018). Adam Holmes has also played with the band Rura, with whom he appeared at Tønder Festival in 2015 and 2016. His only Danish festival concert in 2019.
