The gorgeous range of songs from Blue Rose Code will be filling Saint Luke’s in Glasgow with grace and no little passion on Thursday, September 21.

Blue Rose Code, through Ross Wilson’s masterful and tasteful collection of songs, have won praise the length and breadth of the country in whatever format the group gathers.

The overall excellence of the musicians he picks to play onstage with him ensure his wonderfully, warm and varied material is delivered intimately, thrillingly and joyously. No wonder ‘sold out’ signs feature at a lot at his gigs.

We have a great band performing unforgettable songs in a superb setting so this is shaping up to be a night to remember.
BRC played Glasgow Americana’s 10th Anniversary celebration last year to a sold out room at St Andrew’s In The Square, so best to buy in advance for this show.

Singer/songwriter, Jace Everett was brought back from the dead by vampires – and he’s live in Glasgow on October 13 at Stereo to prove it.

The former ditch digger from Indiana provided “Bad Thing,” the theme song to HBO’s most watched series, True Blood.

Jace, who has toured with Guy Clark, first released the song on his self-titled debut album in 2006 and it gave him a new lease of life in the music business.

With an album, “Dust & Dirt” due out this year, Jace is touring hard and building up a sold fan base with his gritty and groovy sound.

He writes great songs and has a strong reputation for excellent live shows so we look forward to welcoming him to Glasgow.

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

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.

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.
