Two of North Devon's most talented singer/ songwriters, Amy Newton and Jenna, come together for one special evening at the Queen's Theatre's Gallery Sessions in Barnstaple on Wednesday November 26.These two acoustic/ folk musicians are among the best writers to have emerged from the South West in recent years. Both write of things that connect and resonate with people and each has recorded albums that have received rave reviews.Amy hails from Braunton and has developed a large fan base, becoming a favourite of BBC Radio Devon with her catchy choruses and guitar work. After being spotted by a producer during her debut at Glastonbury in 2004 she recorded her first album Lost for Words professionally at the Gateway Studios in London. She self-produced her second album, Which Hand, in her Dad's living room and it saw a return to the simplistic, raw sound that makes her performances so special.Jenna, from Woolacombe, has already notched up a wealth of recording and touring experience under the guidance of one of the folk world's biggest names, Steve Knightley from Show of Hands.Her songs are inspired by the sea and landscape of North Devon all sung with a voice that belies her 19 years. In 2007 she released her debut album that Steve Knightley produced Barefoot and Eager that went on to be listed in the top ten acoustic albums of 2007 by the Financial Times.Amy and Jenna will perform well loved songs from their back catalogue as well as showcasing new tracks.For further information or to book: www.northdevontheatres.org.uk or call (01271) 324242.
