CARRIE ELKIN WEBTexas-based singer/songwriter, Carrie Elkin is set for a matinee date at this year’s Glasgow Americana Festival.

She plays in the afternoon at The Glad Café on Saturday, October 4.

Carrie, whose new album with Danny Schmidt, “For Keeps” is out now, has warmed and impressed audiences on her previous visits to Glasgow.

She appeared as part of the Glasgow Americana 2012 show, “Austin Song Writers In The Round” and she joined Sam Baker on stage during his Fallen Angels Club show last Autumn.

Her engaging range and style of vocals have brought comparisons with the likes of Nanci Griffith, Iris DeMent and Patty Griffin.

“She’s been hugely popular on previous Glasgow visits, so we’re pleased she can be with us again,” said Kevin Morris, the Festival director.

• “She has a voice that’s both gritty and pristine, an earthy combination of strength and compassion…” – Austin Chronicle.
