Polly Paulusma

We know it’s an enormous privilege to organise a well-established musical showcase like Acoustic Edinburgh, but occasionally something happens that reminds Paul and I just how lucky we are. For example, a couple of months ago we were astonished to get an email from the wonderful POLLY PAULUSMA saying she was going to be touring the UK and would love to be able to visit Edinburgh and play at Medina. “Yes!”, we said.

Polly has just released her second album on One Little Indian (Bjork’s record label) to great critical acclaim. Her debut album, “Scissors in my Pocket”, was a purely acoustic affair bringing her comparisons to Joni Mitchell and Carol King with critics falling in love with her warm husky vocal style. Her follow-up, “Fingers and Thumbs”, sees her working with Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Gomez, Badly Drawn Boy) to develop a new rawness to her sound taking inspiration from the likes of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Kings of Leon. Needless to say, Polly is an exceptional performer much in demand (fans of hers include none other than Bob Dylan) and you’d be mad to miss the chance to see her in the cosy Acoustic Edinburgh venue.

As ever, you can listen to Polly’s music – and tracks by all the other great acts we have playing this week – by following the links above.

Hope to see you all there… this is going to be a good one!
