Katee Kross is an 18 year old singer/songwriter from Bishopbriggs just outside Glasgow and this will be her 7th year playing at Perthshire Amber. This is one of the stories we love. Katie first performed at the tender age of about 11 as part of the Bishopbriggs Ceilidh Band. They all arrived at the festival in a minibus and delighted the Open Mic audience! Since then she has performed in small bands and different combinations and has of late struck out on her own.
Katee was a finalist in the 2014 Spree festival Danny Kyle Stage and at the Celtic Connections Danny Kyle Stage. She also played at The Strathyre Music festival, the Kirkintilloch Music Festival , the Linlithgow Music festival as well as at Perthshire Amber and Celtic Connections. Katee has been Invited back to play at most of the above festivals in 2015 will be taking along her first EP 'Are you coming home?' released in October 2014. She also played live on the Aunty Liz show on Celtic Music Radio …the whole team at CMR, along with our team at Perthshire Amber, have encouraged Katee along her musical way and remain her great supporters.
This busy girl has started an under 18s Open Mic in one of the local pubs in Bishopbriggs which gives a much needed platform for the young people of East Dunbartonshire to showcase their talents.
