Award-winning folk songwriter Amelia Coburn comes to The Met on May 31 with songs from her debut album Between The Moon and The Milkman.

Set for release on 8 March 8 2024, Between The Moon and The Milkman is the first full-length record from award-winning folk songwriter Amelia, whose distinctive voice and unique storytelling talent has seen her emerge at the forefront of an exciting new generation of alt-folk voices.

Having reached the finals of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, winning UKE Magazine’s Breakthrough Artist Award and joining English Folk Expo’s Artist Mentoring Scheme all in the last year, Amelia turned her thoughts to the recording studio and quickly found a kinship with producer and like-minded, free-thinking songwriter Bill Ryder-Jones (The Coral, Michael Head and The Elastic Band, Brooke Bentham, Saint Saviour) disclosing “I’ve never in my life worked with someone quite like Amelia and I still can’t quite put my finger on what she is! That’s a compliment by the way – she came in with these incredibly clever, moving songs that just blew me away… It would’ve taken me a day to record just her and her uke but she wanted a bigger sound, so we had a lot of playing around with these arrangements.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of the UK’s most exciting emerging songwriters live in Bury.
