Doors 7.30pm, no support 8pm start

Texas-based singer/songwriter maestro, Sam Baker will return to Glasgow for the first time in more than three years for a St Andrews in the Square show on June 23.

He will be bringing songs from his new, upcoming album, The Land of Doubt, which is his fifth release, to his audience who can expect unstinting warmth, grace, wit and heart-tugging emotions for every minute he’s on stage.

Sam is a terrific live performer who opens his heart in each of his songs in sold out venues. He captivates people with story telling that stays in the memory for a long time.

Having survived a bomb blast in Peru, eight hours of life saving surgery followed by a series of reconstructive operations, lasting hearing difficulties and learning how to play left-handed, Sam’s songs are real personal, beautifully conveyed in his carefully-crafted, heartfelt lyrics.

“It only takes a few seconds for Sam Baker to captivate a crowd as those who have been at his gigs will readily testify,” said The Fallen Angels Club’s, Kevin Morris.

“It’s a moving experience being at one of his shows so I’m delighted he’s coming back again this year.”

“Baker sparkles and tugs at the heartstrings: so let there be praise for the man.” – Americana-uk

The excellent Wynntown Marshals are celebrating a decade of delivering their stirring brand of alt.country and country rock laced with standout melodies.

One special way of marking this milestone will be a headline show at Glasgow’s The Hug and Pint on Friday, September 2.

With three fine albums to their name ¬– 2015’s The End Of The Golden Age was a brilliant collection that rightly won widespread praise – they have a growing following who know that a night locked up with the Marshals’ is one well spent.

The Marshals play with real, crowd-pleasing style and fervour from a catalogue of strong and well-crafted country rock songs.

We are so pleased we will be in their company as they celebrate their 10th anniversary at this gig.

Thea Gilmore, who is racking up the good reviews and airplay for her latest album, The Counterweight, is bringing her distinct singer/songwriting brilliance to Glasgow again in September.

She will play Saint Luke’s on Wednesday, September 13, raiding big style her recording catalogue that’s crammed with emotional and forceful songs.

Thea says her latest release is about truth and passion, and that it was made “with fire and love”. Her shows are heartfelt affairs but not short on good humour, either.

Thea is a welcome visitor to Glasgow where she has turned in first-class performances time and again.

“Live, she’s a musician of searing talent.” – The Telegraph.

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.
