Amy MacDonald to play Irish dates

Scottish singer-songwriter Amy MacDonald pays a visit to our shores for two dates this May.

Amy MacDonald’s upward career trajectory continues on May 27 when she plays Dublin's Academy, and the Mandella Hall, Belfast the next day. Tickets for the Dublin show are €23.

As anyone who caught her packed Whelan’s show in February will know, the 20-year-old from Bishopbriggs near Glasgow has a wicked set of pipes and an even wickeder sense of humour.

Last week found MacDonald keeping extremely good company as she joined David Gray, The Who, Joan Armatrading and Newton Faulkner for the latest Teenage Cancer Trust gig in the Royal Albert Hall.

Poison Prince

You know you’re getting older when new artists come along who were first inspired to pick up a guitar by Pete Doherty. Glaswegian Amy MacDonald is part of the new wave of musicians, equally versed in all aspects of the medium. What impresses most is that she has both a young and old head on her shoulders. She may take a great deal of her motivation from the sheer thrill of making music and hanging out with bands (her online diary gushes with tales of sitting behind the Killers at the Brits and the like) but ‘Poison Prince’ belies a maturity beyond her years. Her voice is rich and clear and the song marries a mainstream sheen with the kind of Scottish folk twang so beloved of the missing in action Sons And Daughters. An album follows in the summer, I’d keep an eye out if I were you.
