Katie O’Malley & Band - Country - Americana Night
Following last year’s Country Night, and by popular demand, we have engaged another up-and-coming artiste, Katie O’Malley, who will perform in the atmospheric surroundings of The Barn Upstairs, at The Orchards Farm.
With a unique voice that pours with emotion, Katie O’Malley and her hip-swaying Americana band have played across the UK at numerous festivals. She has recently featured on BBC ‘Introducing Manchester’, supported top 10 album-selling Beth Rowley and country star Kimmie Rhodes, and played alongside Aziz Ibrahim (Stone Roses, Simply Red). A familiar face on the Manchester music scene, her music is an intriguing cocktail with a husky yet powerful vocal sprinkled on top. Katie and the band have recently released an E P “Never Be The Same” featuring the popular single “Heart Of Gold.”
“Katie’s singing reminds me of some of the best woman vocalists of the 70’s folk rock movement, hints of Stevie Nicks and Linda Thompson.” – The Modern Folk Music of America
“She squeezes every last drop of emotion out of the words she’s singing. Her own songs like, To Be a Woman, Dawn Chorus and What You Need are beautifully crafted songs, delivered from the heart and with a voice that holds the audience’s attention rapt.” Even the Stars Blog
