GLASGOW AMERICANA ANNOUNCES CLASSY MATINEE SHOW
The excellent singer/songwriter and no stranger to the Glasgow Americana Festival, Danny Schmidt makes a welcome return for a classy Saturday matinee at this year’s Festival.
He will appear at The Glad Café on Saturday, October 10 and support will come from festival debutante, Betty Soo from Texas.
Danny’s new album, Owls, is an edgy and atmospheric collection of songs that include full-out band efforts mixed with humble and reflective tracks. All are hugely satisfying and enjoying air-play in the States and here.
Betty Soo has pulled in positive reviews for her albums, including her fourth and latest release, When We’re Gone, with critics comparing her exceptionally, well-arranged songs to the likes of Patty Griffin and Alison Krauss.
She writes beautifully about heartbreak and sorrow but brings to the mix an edginess and warmth that demand attention.
“We are pleased to be able to welcome Danny back to Glasgow and Betty Soo for the first time to the Festival,” said Glasgow Americana director, Kevin Morris.
“This is a great opportunity for Festival fans to hear two performers with excellent songs to share.”
