Emily Barker & Austin Lucas

Thursday 10th December 2020

Show starts at 8pm (UK Time)

Emily Barker released her new album A Dark Murmuration of Words on September 4th 2020 through Thirty Tigers. Produced by Greg Freeman and recorded at StudiOwz, a converted chapel in the Welsh countryside, the album received critical acclaim aplenty and topped the official Americana Albums chart. Throughout the ten songs that make up the album, Barker draws connections between the familial, the local, and the global: a mother sings to her unborn child, asking for its forgiveness on ‘Strange Weather’; ‘When Stars Cannot Be Found’ explores the humbleness and comfort of the night sky when far away from home. Other highlights include the nostalgic ‘Return Me’, ‘The Woman Who Planted Trees’, the gloriously defiant ‘Machine’ and the effortless album closer ‘Sonogram’.

Austin Lucas’ new album Alive In The Hot Zone was written and recorded in the earliest days of the Covid-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter/American uprising. This album represents a new direction
for Austin, yet retains his distinctive voice and hyperliterate writing style. Contained are ten songs that serve as direct commentary regarding the ongoing global situation, isolation, fear and the indomitable
spirit required to stand up against systemic racism and fascism, in a world spiraling out of control.
An American songwriter and political activist currently experiencing a more or less involuntary exile, Austin finds himself isolated in a foreign land, far away from his family and friends.

Please leave the name Nathan to indicate the show you wish to attend

An Iowa-bred, Tennessee-grown, down-to-earth American original, Nathan Bell creates spellbinding live performances with a combination of impeccably sung stories and dazzling musicianship not always found in the singer-songwriter genre.

With a keen eye and ear for the lives of working people, struggling people and forgotten people, Bell has honed his decades of commitment to blues, folk, jazz, poetry and justice into a sound and spirit all his own.

The son of famed Iowa poet Marvin Bell, Nathan grew up attuned to the power of plain, spare language to evoke places and narratives that stir both the heart and the brain. He moved to Boston in the 1980s and refined both his writing and his guitar playing while paying his dues driving a fish truck and working long hours in a hotel restaurant receiving room.

Bell returned to Iowa as part of the folk duo Bell and Shore, and garnered national attention for his vigorous, literate and often funny songwriting, as well as his virtuoso arranging and guitar playing. After recording two critically acclaimed albums, Bell moved to Nashville where he worked with producer Richard Bennett (Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Marty Stuart) and tried his hand at writing in the Twang Town music machine.

As marriage and children arrived, Bell put down the guitar and joined the corporate world, returning after a 15-year hiatus with the expanded perspective that comes with age and responsibility. Weathering the pain of layoffs, the unmooring of the Great Recession, and the frustration of an increasingly deranged American political landscape, Bell’s new songs reflected his newfound insights into love, greed, abandonment and injustice.

His self-recorded “Family Man” quartet of CDs, as well as his enthralling live shows, earned Bell a loyal and growing following among devotees of the well-written song, expertly presented, in the U.S., Europe and the U.K.

In 2019, Bell recorded a new set of songs with producers Brian Brinkerhoff and Frank Swart (Malcolm Holcombe, Guitar Shorty, Kool and the Gang). Scheduled for release in autumn 2020, “Red, White, and American Blues (it couldn’t happen here)” features guest vocals from Patty Griffin, Regina McCrary, and Aubrie Sellers.

“I Don’t Do This For Love, I Do This For Love, Nathan Bell on Tour,” a film by award winning director John Dower, filmed in Scotland, England, and Wales, is currently playing at independent film festivals all over the world.

For our Saturday matinee we are delighted to welcome a double header from two fantastic singer song writers from Northern Ireland.

Irish Songwriter and Producer Matt McGinn hails from the Mourne Mountains in Co. Down. Hotpress Magazine labelled him as ‘1 to Watch’ in 2020.

His 2019 single Bubblegum with Ciara O’Neill was one of the most played songs on BBC Radio Ulster and was played extensively on RTE Radio, BBC Radio 6, and many other stations throughout Ireland and the UK. His latest single release, Annie (Many Moons Ago) has been described as one of the best you’ll hear this year.

“Now, isn’t that just extraordinary?!” Tom Robinson BBC 6.

In 2020 Matt released his 4th album LESSONS OF WAR. It includes songs Matt penned with some of Ireland’s finest writers and features artists from areas around the world affected by conflict like the Citizens of the World Choir, made up refugees and their carers; Anthony Seydu from Siera Leone; and Yazan Ibrahim, a young virtuoso flamenco guitarist from Golan Heights.

Over the last few years, Malojian has released 4 stunning solo albums, along the way collaborating with some musical legends, including Steve Albini, who earned his chops producing Nirvana, The Pixies etc. His latest album features Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Atoms For Peace, Roger Waters), Gerry Love (Teenage Fanclub), Jon Thorne (Yorkston/Thorne/Khan, Lamb) and more…But it’s Malojian’s own voice and songs that sets him apart from the crowd.

It’s a special treat when Danny Schmidt and Carrie Elkin, who normally tour separately and solo, get to share the stage together. If the chemistry seems especially sparkful, they come by it honestly, as they are a rare breed: a romantic partnership in real life, not just musical life. And the two together on stage makes for a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

Danny Schmidt is best known for his riveting poetic lyrics, which have drawn favorable comparisons to Leonard Cohen and Townes Van Zandt for their depth and complexity. And gypsy spirit Carrie Elkin is best known for her incredibly soulful and dynamic vocals, which have drawn favorable comparisons to Patty Griffin at her most powerful, and Nanci Griffith at her most intimate…

Streamed via Zoom- confirmation e-mail will be sent.

We are so delighted that legendary Austin singer song writer Eliza Gilksyon has agreed to record a concert exclusively for The Fallen Angels Club.

Eliza, a twice Grammy-nominated (2006/2014) singer-songwriter, is announcing her new release, 2020, due out on April 10 on the Red House/Compass label. The record is a collection of politically charged anthems designed to motivate, reflect and inspire action during what may be the most vital American election of our lifetime.

2020 is a blend of new and old, reflecting the protests and activism that have defined her generation, including her interpretation of some folk favorites by Bob Dylan, “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,”and Pete Seeger’s “Where Have All the Flowers Gone.” Eliza also adapted a new song, “Beach Haven,” from a letter written by Woody Guthrie in 1952 to Fred Trump, who at the time was his landlord, regarding his segregationist renter policies. Ever the optimist, Woody pleaded to Trump to “open your doors” and “rip out the strangling red tape” that kept the apartment from embracing all races.

Jayhawks’ founder member, Mark Olson continues to create and record – and he’ll showcase his latest solo release at a show at Glasgow’s CCA on April 22.

The singer-songwriter has been responsible for some of the most blissful, genre-defining Alternative Country and Americana ever recorded but on his first solo album for five years, ‘Good-bye Lizelle,’ Olson strikes out in an altogether different direction, resulting in songs that prove both poetic and mystical.

The album – written and recorded across several continents and featuring his Norwegian wife, Ingunn Ringvold on vocals– has been attracting hugely favourable reviews from the critics.

Of the new Olson album, Folk Radio UK wrote: “there are no bad songs here, just degrees of excellence.”

Mark Olson is one of the most recognised and revered figures in the Americana music genre so a show in Glasgow is a ‘must-see’.

His music has brought pleasure to so many people over the years with The Jayhawks, other bands and solo so it’s a real big deal that he’s agreed to include Glasgow in a major tour.”

Glasgow’s very own Monica Queen will open up the show.

Lau appeared on BBC TV’s Later… with Jools Holland extending their audience considerably in the process and won their fourth BBC Radio Folk Award for Best Group a few months later.

For their new album, The Elysian Quartet, a group that share Lau’s fearless desire to create something new through improvisation, will feature and the new recordings are produced by Brooklyn based artist and multi-instrumentalist Joan Wasser (Joan As Police Woman). What comes next from Lau promises to be their greatest musical recorded statement yet.
