They Promised You Pictures. Amelia Curran In-Store!

Let the celebration begin! It was dark and wet outside but the gathering of fans, friends and fellow-musicians embraced Amelia like a warm quilt as she (accompanied by Joel Hunt) performed several new songs Tuesday evening at Fred’s.

Rewarded with a set of songs, eloquent, poignant and vibrant, her new album, “They Promised You Mercy” released at home and abroad was spoke about with much praise by all in attendance.

The glasses were emptied, eats devoured while the minds were nourished and hearts replenished as the gathering sang in unison the refrain of the set’s closing number followed by rapturous applause.

We thank you for coming and supporting our artists.

Cheers All.
