Making a long awaited reappearance in the city after a sell out show during Glasgow Americana Festival in 2008, the Handsome Family return to Glasgow in May with a new collection of darkly sublime, gothic ballads to chill the heart.

Brett and Rennie Sparks’ unique take on the country-bluegrass murder ballad once earned them the title of the ”the Gomez and Morticia Adams of country music”. And yet somehow they do heartbreaking every bit as well as macabre. The couple’s last album Honey Moon was a bittersweet collection of – admittedly melancholy-laced – love songs in celebration of their two decades together.

Unfalteringly captivating in a live setting, this is set to be one of the hottest tickets of the year.
