The last K-City Music Tuesday of the season features top female singer/ songwriter Amy Wadge, who makes a welcome return to the Gulbenkian,

“Pint sized poetess with valley quaking voice. Her songs have a raw vibrancy that suit her earthy voice and emotionally mature lyrics” Q magazine
Amy Wadge has enjoyed many
highlights in her career so far. She played a sell-out gig at
