Holly Orridge launched her new EP, 14 Miles to Midnight, with a performance at the Horsefair on Wednesday.
The 15-year-old from Chatteris who regularly performs in local pubs and festivals around Cambridgeshire played an hour set to a live audience.
She said: “There were quite a few people so it was a nice crowd to play for.”
Holly started playing her own material in Cambridgeshire a few months ago and recorded her new EP earlier this month.
“When I’d go and play gigs, people would ask if I had an EP and I’d have to say no. So I decided to go and record one, at Wyshwood Studios in Ramsey – it only took about four hours!”

She said the title has another personal connection.
“I feel like my confidence really grew in Whittlesey after I attended the Boat open mics.
“They completely inspired me and I wouldn’t be doing what I am without having gone to those nights.”
