Kit Holmes knows her way around the frets of a guitar.
“I was given a guitar for Christmas when I was 11 and by the end of the two-week holiday I had worked all the way through the tutor book and I’ve been captivated ever since.”
“I can’t imagine life without it,” she says.
But it was a worthwhile present.
Kit Holmes now leads a sought-after roots act, with fiddle, guitar and bass. The Trio’s latest album, Diving into the Blue, lapped up huge critical acclaim and is now the subject of a UK tour.
The Kit Holmes’ Trio’s music features some stunning fiddle work, which creates a rich texture to their sound.
The Kit Holmes Trio play at the Greystones, Greystones Road, Sheffield, Friday, March 28.
