The World’s Room: Amy Leach

The World’s Room is a home for traditional singing in Edinburgh, organised by the Traditional Music Forum and held in the Waverley Bar, St Mary’s St.

Amy Leach is a traditional singer from Edinburgh, now based in Newcastle. She studied with Sandra Kerr and Chris Hendry on the Newcastle University Folk and Traditional Music Degree and then completed an MLitt on Traditional Song, Community and Embodied Metaphors (which featured some research with some lovely singers from The World’s Room).

Although Amy now spends most of her time producing the Folkworks programme at Sage Gateshead she looks forward to any opportunity she can get to sing a big ballad or two.
