Ami Williamson

“Forceful, funny, powerful and poetic, Ami Williamson is a Folk Singer/ Songwriter like none other! I cried, I laughed, then both at the same time; one woman show at it’s best” - (The Sydney Morning Herald). Ami is one of those rare female singers. While her roots are firmly in the tradition of singer/songwriter, her richly diverse upbringing had Ami taking the stage not only in Opera and Lieder, but also touring with her father, legendary country music artist John Williamson. A classically trained singer/multi-instrumentalist and graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and Ensemble Acting Studios; Ami brings audiences to their feet with her unique combination of music and theatre. In earlier years Ami won a scholarship to study with the world renowned bass-baritone Thomas Quasthoff in Germany. Ami has performed with Opera Australia and the State Opera of South Australia under the baton of Sir Richard Bonynge. As a much loved and well respected artist on the Australian music scene, Ami has enjoyed regular headline engagements at The Port Fairy Folk Festival, The Woodford Folk Festival and The National Folk Festival to name a few. “Ami Williamson is an incredible - 'one of a kind' artist; my favorite act at the Port Fairy Folk Music Festival!” - (International Folk Icon - Judy Collins).
