National touring artist Colin Grant-Adams, originally from Oban, Scotland, now Glasgow, Kentucky, performs songs of the British Isles and American folk and bluegrass music, adding elements from his own musical experiences of 30 years to create a refreshingly spirited sound uniquely his own.
Scotland in Songs and Stories: Grant-Adams entertains, inspires and educates his audiences on a musical journey to the British Isles. Drawing from traditional, contemporary and acclaimed original songs, Grant-Adams brings to light the early influences the Scottish emigrants had on American folk and bluegrass music, also leads musical tours of his home land Scotland.
Grant-Adams weaves songs with mystical stories, a touch of humor and even some unbelievable yodeling, delivered with his powerful tenor voice and intriguing guitar work.
Grant-Adams has produced 10 recordings, appeared on numerous television shows and in concerts all over the United States, including the acclaimed Carnegie Hall in New York City.
Stephen Holden of the New York Times calls him "a spirited spokesman of a vigorous Scots folk tradition that is unabashed in its expression of patriotism."
