When Kathryn Joseph says that “listening to certain pieces of music can make you know the truth of everything,” she’s remembering one personal epiphany at a gig in 2016 that helped point her to the contented life she now lives, but the same can easily be said of her own music.
Intimate, fearlessly frank and with a fathoms-deep emotional resonance, Joseph’s highly individual expression was first heard on 2015’s Bones You Have Thrown Me And Blood I’ve Spilled. The dark, mournful beauty of that debut – which addressed failed relationships and the death of her infant son – bagged her the Scottish Album of the Year award against stiff competition.
Following several collaborative projects in 2016, Joseph released From When I Wake The Want Is – 12 songs of an equally devastating, understated intensity in terms of her heavily rhythmic piano work, striking vocals and vivid lyrics, but with a newly muscular edge and textured depth.
Kathryn Joseph returns to Paisley for a special performance in the Spiegeltent on Monday 11 October.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you to The Spree 2021.
We’re in a new location this year on Bridge Street, Paisley, which gives us more space. Use this link to find us.
We’ve got a reduced capacity in the Spiegeltent this year. We encourage everyone attending to respect others, practice good hand hygiene and wear a face covering even entering or exiting the tent, going to the toilet or moving around the tent.
We’d also encourage you to take a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) prior to attending a show.
The Spree festival uses the Check In Scotland service to collect contact details of visitors, customers and staff. This allows NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect service to conduct faster contact tracing and help stop the spread of Covid-19.
You can quickly and securely provide your contact details by scanning an official Test & Protect Check-in Scotland QR code poster via your smartphone camera or by downloading the Check in Scotland app. You’ll find posters with the QR code at the entrance to the event space. If you’re unable to use the app, your personal details will be taken manually.
