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.

One of the freshest and stylistically most authentic No Depression/alt.country bands on the scene right now comes to us straight from… no, not Austin, Minneapolis, Portland, Raleigh, or Louisville… but from Edinburgh!

Following their latest headline tour of mainland Europe, tonight’s show celebrates the west coast launch of ‘The End Of The Golden Age’, the third album by Edinburgh-based band The Wynntown Marshals. This, the band’s second release on Blue Rose Records, is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed LPs ‘The Long Haul’ (2013) and ‘Westerner’ (2009).

Over recent years, The Marshals have acquired an excellent reputation as a live band, having toured the UK as headliners in their own right, as well as sharing the stage with the likes of Marty Stuart, and Fallen Angels Club favourites like Chuck Prophet, Tift Merritt, Richmond Fontaine, John Murry, Sturgill Simpson, and Jason & The Scorchers. In addition, the band has recorded radio sessions for BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 2, garnering the support of the legendary ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris in the process.

Dave Alvin & Phil Alvin with The Guilty Ones

THE re-united Alvin Brothers – Dave and Phil – are heading to Glasgow for a gig in the newly-refurbished Art School on Tuesday, October 28.

It took a near-death experience to reunite Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin, the California brothers at the heart of “roots heroes” (Rolling Stone) The Blasters.

“Phil died and was brought back to life over in Spain,” Dave says of his brother’s 2012 health scare. “That was a real wakeup call to me. We hadn’t made a full album together since 1985, but as you get older, you realize you’re not immortal and you’ve only got so much time.”

It’s a real coup for promoters, The Fallen Angels Club especially with the brothers’ current album – “Common Ground: Dave Alvin & Phil Alvin Play and Sing the Songs of Big Bill Broonzy” – going down a storm.

This is the Californians’ first collaborative effort in 30 years and their first as brothers as opposed to being members of The Blasters, which Dave quit in 1985 to pursue an illustrious solo career.

The brothers are widely recognised as real mainstays of the roots/rock genre, separately or together – so this gig promises to be something rather special.

The newly refurbished Art School is the perfect venue for this show.

Jefferson Hamer & Kristin Andreassen

Saturday 20th September The Admiral Bar

Guitarist and singer Jefferson Hamer, co-recipient of a 2014 BBC2 Folk Award, and songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kristin Andreassen join together to showcase their newest original music after a spectacular year performing at the Newport Folk Festival, Royal Albert Hall, and Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

They first met over a decade ago in Lyons, Colorado, where Kristin and her band Uncle Earl gathered to rehearse material for their award-winning album Waterloo, Tennessee, produced by Led Zep legend John Paul Jones. Jefferson lived next door, and he and Kristin sung country-style duets in the kitchen, finding common ground in traditional music from both sides of the Atlantic.

Kristin’s song writing earned her a feature on NPR’s Prairie Home Companion (with Jefferson as guitarist-in-tow) and her skills as a backing vocalist and instrumentalist were highlighted on recent UK tours with Jeffery Lewis and Aoife O’Donovan.

You can Book online via Ticketweb or give Tickets Scotland a call on 0141 204 5151, or pop into The Admiral Bar and purchase a ticket from behind the bar.

Laura and Lydia Rogers play Cottiers in Glasgow on March 30.

The duo from Muscle Shoals, Alabama went from touring with Bob Dylan and Paul Simon to losing their label, filing for bankruptcy and taking up housecleaning jobs to keep going.

But they have fought back as their striking third album, You Don’t Own Me Anymore produced by Brandi Carlile, clearly shows. Carlile says: “I think we’re finally seeing who the Secret Sisters are.”

It’s great that their stunning voices, gorgeous harmonies and steely songs with a vintage sound have not been silenced – and now the duo is moving on in determined style.

We are so pleased The Secret Sisters can come here as they have songs with such style and passion that will sound great in a live setting.
