Music Programme 2019
An exciting new collaboration at Tønder Festival this year: Arcade with Irish Heidi Talbot and Scottish Adam Holmes. An album produced by Louis Abbott, of the band Admiral Fallow, is on its way, and Arcade plan an extensive tour in Britain and Europe. Heidi Talbot, who played at Tønder Festival in 2012 with her trio, moved to New York at the age of 18 and later joined the extremely successful group Cherish The Ladies. Her solo career blossomed, too, and Heidi Talbot has worked with stars like Eddie Reader, Boo Hewerdine, Mark Knopfler and Jerry Douglas. Not forgetting John McCusker, her husband. Adam Holmes has made his mark as one of Scotland’s notable voices. With his band, The Embers, he has played at Tønder Festival several times, and is also on the programme this year with his band. His debut album Heirs and Graces from 2014 had critics comparing him to the late John Martyn, and the album won everal nominations. Their only festival concert in Denmark in 2019.
