London-based singer songwriter Rebecca Hollweg's 2 albums have won her critical acclaim, national radio play and a loyal following of all ages. Playing live, she is open and unpretentious, and as one listener said ‘it feels like she is reaching out and enfolding you in a warm embrace’.
An accomplished singer and guitarist, she last played in Aberdeen at the Music Hall, supporting Roger McGuinn and Paul Carrack.
Here she appears with two excellent Scottish musicians - Tom Gordon on drums (BBC Big Band) and her husband Andy Hamill on bass (Laura Mvula, Rumer), playing her melodic and uplifting songs

‘A gifted tunesmith, happy to wrangle words into memorable phrases’, Q Magazine
‘Likened to Joni Mitchell and Susanne Vega yet she’s more akin to an old school Brill Building song smith. Carole King couldn’t have come up with a better pop song’, UNCUT ****
