KT Tunstall, Alhambra Theatre, 23rd February.

KT looked delighted to be back home in Fife for the only Scottish date on her tour and this was reciprocated by the sell-out audience creating a warm glow around the place from the start.

This was a rare occasion when the St Andrews star was watched by her parents and welcomed back to the theatre with a large banner hung from the balcony.

She admitted to being a bit hoarse after enjoying a good night on her previous stop in Dublin but there was no sign of that as she kicked off with material from her third album 'Tiger Suit'.

KT as a singer, songwriter and musician is bursting with talent, ideas as well as an endearing down-to-earth personality. Switching guitars after almost every song , she exudes an easy charm as she chats away between numbers.

She had no shortage of material to choose from for 'Tiger Suit' having produced 75 songs in a creative purple patch.

The dance-inspired 'Glamour Puss' and the tribal rhythms of 'Uummannaq Song' worked well and 'Scarlet Tulip' was another highlight.

However, the gig moved into top gear when KT performed her breakthrough track 'Black Horse and the Cherry Tree' and a superb solo performance of 'Other Side of the World'.

Another new song 'Still a Weirdo' and her encore 'Suddenly I See' set the seal on a scintillating 90 minutes from a creative powerhouse.

And KT will be back in this neck of the woods before long having been confirmed as appearing at T in the Park.
