The Peer Hat | Manchester

Publisher/HostThe Peer Hat
Astrid Williamson was the frontperson for Scottish trio Goya Dress in the mid-'90s. After the dissolution of the band in late 1996, Williamson opted to go solo under the alias of her first name. Though a classically trained pianist and confessional-style singer/songwriter with a uniquely haunting and beautiful voice, Astrid's numerous comparisons to Tori Amos were lazy. Distinctive in her own right, Astrid's songwriting was more down-to-earth, subtle, and intricate than that of her redheaded peer; Kristin Hersh and Polly Harvey are better touchstones, but even those positive comparisons do little to bottle her artistry.
Having worked with artists as diverse as John Cale, Dead Can Dance, Electronic and the Hope Blister. We are very proud to bring her to The Peer Hat, during a time when her music finds a deeper resonance with all that listen.

Support comes in the form of Edwin Williamson. Comparisons to Scott Walker and Nick Cave, fail to nail down Edwin's spectral allure. Indeed, Edwin's presence behind the cheap set of Manchester's modern musical scene, forms part of the story of the city....a part that you can experience by attending this gig.
