Madalene Kirby

Wednesday 5 July – Amphitheatre 15.30-16.15

Born and brought up in Liverpool, Leonie has lived in Llangollen for over twenty years. She studied singing at college, taught music in primary and secondary schools, and has written several musicals and sung in genres from Barbershop to Renaissance. 2013 saw her emerge as a singer-songwriter on piano and guitar, with an equal love of music and the written word, and she performed at The Women’s Festival, Llangollen Fringe Acoustica and on the outside stage at the Llangollen Eisteddfod. With influences including Elbow, Faure, Paul Simon and Bach, she describes her style as ‘lush chords and lyrical quirkiness’.
