News: Tom Russell Signs Up For Glasgow Americana 2015

TOM RUSSELL 2015Superb songsmith Tom Russell is the first act to be announced for this year’s Glasgow Americana Festival.

The man from El Paso, whose songs have been recorded by everyone from Johnny Cash to Nanci Griffith, will be appearing at St Andrews in the Square on Friday, October 9.

Tom reckons he’s written his strongest material in the past decade and his latest, The Rose of Roscrae has aroused the critics, attracting words like “masterpiece.”

It’s a double album with 25 original Russell compositions they highlight an artistic output that is never less than intriguing, eye-opening and thoughtful with a dusty, rootsy style honed over years of performing out on the road, doing his own thing.

“Tom Russell is as good it gets when you think about singer/songwriters of the past 30 or so years,” said Kevin Morris, director of the Glasgow Americana Festival.

“I am pleased he’s agreed to return to Glasgow to grace the Festival – an evening in his company is time well spent.”

Glasgow Americana will take place at various venues across the city from the 7th to 11th October, more acts to be announced in due course. Please keep an eye on our website for future updates:-
