Dawn Coulshed & Criseyde Holman
May 31 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Dawn Coulshed is an ever evolving singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. After studying classical piano in Edinburgh she was swept into the London indie-folk scene where she released 2 EPs and toured as part of the duo ‘Evering’. Dawn has released several singles as a solo artist with music blogs comparing her to Joni Mitchell and Maggie Rogers. Coulshed’s arrangement of her own song ‘Sing for us’ was performed by the Roundhouse Choir as part of BBC 6 Music Festival in Camden, London. In 2021 Dawn returned to Scotland to study jazz voice at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The Glasgow charm and its buzzing music scene has inspired new music which Dawn is set to release in the coming months.
“Dawn Coulshed has one of the most sophisticated voices that I’ve ever covered. I can’t really think of a better word for the tone and style that she presents…” (Ear to the Ground Music)
“Dawn Coulshed has one of those voices that could sing the phonebook and I’d happily listen to it all…Every note she sings is, quite frankly, outstanding” (A1234 blog)
Criseyde Holman grew up in a small village in the north of Switzerland where she started having lessons on baroque flute at the age of 7 and three years later moved onto classical flute. Her love for the flute grew, which eventually led her to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where she is now on the BMus course studying flute under the tutelage of Ruth Morley. Aside from her classical studies, Criseyde is also interested in jazz and in 2016, 2018, 2019 & 2022 was selected for the international “Jazzaar” Festival, in Aarau (Switzerland). Jazzaar provides the opportunity to work alongside acclaimed musicians, such as Ron Carter, Billy Cobham, Ryan Quigley, Christian Jacob, Tommy Smith and many more. Being a part of the festival made her realise how much she wanted to bridge the gap between the jazz and the classical world. She also has a passion for singing as well as songwriting and since moving to Glasgow she has formed close relationships with other musicians with whom she regularly performs with. She is planning on recording her own music in the near future.
