Ami is the daughter of Australian music icon, True Blue John Williamson.
A trained singer/pianist and graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Ami Williamson has been performing in her own right for many years after her father – country music’s John Williamson – first took her out on the road as a teenager.
Ami’s experience as a performer has extended far and wide since her graduation from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music – in addition to playing Festivals across Australia, she was invited to entertain troops in the Solomon Islands, Iraq and Afghanistan. She’s not just a talented singer and songwriter, her incredible talents also extend to playing the piano, drums and dulcimer.
Ami brings audiences to their feet with her unique combination of music and theatre. Ami has performed for the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and toured nationally with folk icon, Eric Bogle. As a much loved and well respected artist on the Australian music scene, Ami has enjoyed regular headline engagements at all the major festivals including Port Fairy Folk Festival, Woodford Folk Festival and the National Folk Festival to name a few, as well as several national tours and cruises
