The Scottish singer will bring a mix of highland ballads, swinging jazz, emotive country and pop to Elgin Town Hall on October 14 with her new show 'The Road Below Me'.

In the show, no genre is off limits in a production of music new and old, celebrating a return to live performances once again.

Working with long-term musical collaborator Nils Elders on guitar and pianist Neil Birse, Ms Kennedy's concert dates will bring in some of her musician friends — giving each performance it’s own character.

Ms Kennedy said: “If the past two years have taught me anything, it’s that there’s no better mix than musicianship and friendship. And it’s that essence my new show seeks to capture and take to a venue near you this autumn, with tour dates already announced for Glasgow, Dumfries, Elgin and Inverness.

“I’ve been back in the studio in the past few weeks, recording some brand new songs with producer and musician Calum MacColl (son of Peggy Seeger and Ewan MacColl) and also featuring Antony Chipperfield who will join me on tour.

“Nils Elders and I have also written and recorded two quite poppy songs - which have certainly lifted our spirits. I would say at this rate we’ll have a great new album ready to take on the road.

“The joy has been singing such a range of music — country classics, some old Scottish favourites, songs to get you singing along to and songs to get you up on the dance floor."
