Heidi Talbot’s fifth solo LP plays to the tune of quiet skips and giant leaps. It crosses the ages, jumps into the unknown, traverses oceans and musical styles – from folk, through Americana, to classic pop, and back again. The Co Kildare singer / songwriter, who now resides in Scotland with her musical partner and husband John McCusker, is joined by a host of musicians and co-writers on the album, including Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow), Duke Special, Adam Holmes and Boo Hewerdine.

“The title, Here We Go, 1, 2, 3, takes that idea of jumping, whether it’s into new musical territories, new bands, a new studio, new label, new family – new everything, really,” says Talbot, the recipient of 2008’s Indie Acoustic award and multiple BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominations.

Jesse Dayton is making Glasgow a one-night stand in October, his first visit to the city in a long, long time.

With new album, The Revealer, out now, Austin, Texas-based Jesse is set for a show at Stereo on Wednesday, October 25.

Playing some 150 gigs a year he has been building a cult following around the globe playing festivals in North America and Europe for years.

His guitar shredding, country-infused, Americana hits the spot for his faithful fans – they are known as “Hardchargers” – around the globe.

He has played lead guitar on recordings, and live, with country legends Waylon Jennings, Ray Price, Johnny Bush, Willie Nelson and Glen Campbell.

He formed his own record label, Stag Records in 2002, has recorded a mean bunch of albums plus film sound tracks – and he recently wrote and directed a new horror movie, “Zombex”.

Jesse also landed the part of Kinky Friedman in a stage production of “Becoming Kinky: The World According To Kinky Friedman”.

This is a man who knows how to write, how to perform and how to please his fans so it’s great we can bring his long absence from Scotland to an end with this show.

All originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, The Stray Birds started as a duo of acoustic buskers in early 2010 when Maya de Vitry and Oliver Craven met with their instruments, their voices, and their songs.

It didn’t take much convincing to get bassist Charlie Muench on board, and with the addition of a third unique and powerful voice, the group began to define its captivating sound. Seven years, three original records, and some six hundred performances later, the band is best known today for its song-writing, tight vocal harmony blend and commitment to an impassioned delivery of original material, both on stage and in the studio.

They’ve been seen from LA to London, sung songs from Dallas to Denmark, and played tunes from New York to New Orleans. In 2015, they emerged triumphant from Cambridge Folk Festival with footage included in the TV Highlights coverage of the event.

Their 2016 Yep Roc Records release Magic Fire was produced by Grammy-winner Larry Campbell and established them as a major force, being voted Best Album of The Year in the annual Readers’ Poll at Americana UK. They also carried off the Band of The Year accolade in the same vote at the end of 2016. Aoife O’Donovan plus support

Award-winning trio, The Hot Club of Cowtown will provide the musical fireworks with a show at St Andrew’s In The Square in Glasgow on Sunday, November 5 this year.

Winners of the Western Swing Group of the Year 2015 Award this is a sparkling, globetrotting band that has toured with Dylan, Willie Nelson and The Mavericks.

The trio’s latest album “Midnight on the Trail” is a vintage mix of 12 Western swing songs and cowboy ballads hand-collected to reflect the spirit and joy of the American West.

The music is romantic and rustic, the harmonies warm and they make people want to dance.

Elana James (fiddle and vocals), Whit Smit (guitar and vocals) plus Jake Erwin (upright bass and vocals), are always willing to develop and improvise with new sounds to add to their blistering mix of blues, jazz, folk, American fiddle tunes and pop standards.

They are brilliant musicians whose range of styles and influences win over audiences wherever they hit the stage, so it’s great to have them back again.

“Hot Club punch above the weight of their guitar/violin/bass line-up and combined vocals.” – The Observer.

NASHVILLE-based singer/songwriter, Angel Snow is heading to Glasgow in November for a show at The Admiral.

Her layered, textured music is an acclaimed and glorious sonic mix of country, folk and pop – songs that give people hope, she says.

Her second album, Magnetic, was released earlier this year and it appeared following a period when Angel was involved in writing songs for the likes of Grammy-award winner, Alison Krauss.

Three of Angel’s songs are on Krauss’s 2011 album, Paper Airplane. and prompted Nashville’s Music Row to crown Angel “Nashville’s next stealth pop weapon.”

“… her smooth, dark chocolate voice and sense of melody meshes exquisitely with her new sonic style.” – American Songwriter.

Ida Wenøe (pron. EEda VAYnoo) is an indie-folk artist of the highest calibre, with tinges of Americana and a Nordic inflection, the sum of the musical parts creating a rare beast and a thing of great beauty.

2016 saw a whistle-stop 7-day introductory UK tour, which showcased her genuinely unique talent as a solo artist here for the first time, bolstered by radio plays from BBC6Music’s Tom Ravenscroft and Gideon Coe.

He picked up glowing 5-star reviews for his last album, I Don’t Do This for Love, I Do This for Love – a CD that won him more media exposure in the space of a few weeks than he had experienced for a long time.

And, Nathan Bell ended 2016 on another high after featuring as one of the Best Male Performers of the Year in the Readers’ Poll at the influential AmericanaUK website.

He made a rare visit to these shores in February for an appearance with James McMurtry at Celtic Connections, and stunned a capacity crowd into hushed silence when he took the stage at Oran Mor.

Reviewing the performance for AmericanaUK, writer Paul Kerr said:
“It was a raucous crowd that faced Bell when he bounced onto the stage but within minutes he had them transfixed with barely a murmur to be heard, his confident delivery and wry humour demanding attention, “Gruff and tender with a poet’s voice and a sincere sense of justice Bell is the real deal…do yourself a favour and catch this true American troubadour. You won’t be disappointed.”

Nathan has a new album “Love>Fear (48 Hours In Traitorland) – a stark, acoustic soundtrack for the times we are living in – that is winning him more attention on both sides of the Atlantic

Chuck Prophet and The Mission Express will bring their raucous, glorious and majestic show to Edinburgh on November 19 this year.

His Glasgow gig earlier this year was a terrific example of a crowd- pleasing showman with a top-notch American songbook behind him to deliver big style rock ‘n roll – it was a full-on love in between the frontman/guitarist and a audience who roared their approval throughout.

Tracks from his latest release, Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins, his 13th solo effort since his Green On Red Days, slotted into the set easily and rowdily.

There’s a lot of humour around when Chuck hits the stage with his ace band, and he’s one of those performers who clearly and dearly loves what he does.

“Chuck never fails to deliver a 100 per cent, good-time-for-all type show, so this Edinburgh gig promises to be another great night for all,” said Kevin Morris of The Fallen Angels Club.

“…a charmed and charming performer” – The Scotsman
