Hazy Afternoon At The Glad Café
Saturday 7th October Matinee Show
Martha Fields, Ags Connolly and Martha L. Healy will bring an intriguing range of sounds embracing all that’s good about this musical genre plus more to be confirmed.
A singer/songwriter from Austin, Texas, Marty Fields is based part of the year in France and enjoyed great critical acclaim with her Southern White Lies album, which was the No 2 CD of 2016 on the Euro Americana Charts.
This will be a Glasgow debut for Marty whose Southern gothic, emotionally-charged music summons the expressive power of Guthrie, Dylan, Gentry and Williams.
Ags Connolly, a traditional country singer-songwriter from Oxfordshire, is also a proud supporter of the ‘Ameripolitan’ movement, supporting new music with a traditional roots influence.
His second album released this year, Nothin Unexpected, was a brilliant follow=up to his stunning debut, How About Now.
With the likes of Darrell Scott and Grammy-Award winner, Roseanne Cash in his corner, he has won many admirers with
Country Music People magazine naming his song, ‘When Country Was Proud’ as one of the Top 50 country songs from the last 30 years.
Half-Scottish, half-Irish, Martha L Healy is country through and through, raised on a diet of The Eagles, The Traveling Wilburys and Tom Petty, not forgetting Sheryl Crow, Carol King, Dolly Parton and Bonnie Raitt.
Her debut album, Better Days, was recorded in Nashville in 2014 and she also spent three months there writing a second one.
Her recent EP, To Be Free, was recorded as an interim project in her native Glasgow and received notable reviews from the Country and Americana press and plenty of air play.
This Saturday matinee event is well liked by Glasgow Americana fans and we think this year’s terrific line-up will boost its appeal greatly.
