RISING Scottish music star Adriana Spina is boosting her profile further by opening for one of Britain’s most established singer-songwriters, Joan Armatrading.

The Glasgow-based singer is joining Armatrading for four dates on what is billed as Armatrading’s final major tour, including Sunday’s show at Eden Court (19th October).

Spina previously performed with Armatrading in 2012 as part of her Starlight Tour and is delighted to have been asked to join her again for these solo shows.

"Joan is a genuine musical legend, and a real supporter of emerging artists," Spina said.

"It was an honour to perform alongside her back in 2012, so to be invited to join her again for more shows is incredible and a great endorsement of what I do.

"It will be a pleasure to play with her again and I simply can’t wait!"

She is looking forward to performing some of her new tracks to audiences in four of Scotland’s finest live music venues:

Ahead of her shows with Joan Armatrading, Spina was invited to showcase her songwriting at music impresario Alan McGee’s new acoustic venue The Tabernacle in Brecon, Wales. McGee was the founder of Creation Records, home of Oasis and Primal Scream, amongst others.

Spina, who has also supported such artists as Sheryl Crow, Paolo Nutini, Eddi Reader, Midge Ure and Dar Williams, is currently working on her second album, scheduled for release on her own Ragged Road label next year.
