Beth will be appearing at the Roaming Roots Revue, Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow on 20 January 2013 @ 7:30PM
Billed as the indie Transatlantic Sessions, the Roaming Roots Revue takes its inaugural bow at the festival. Drawing inspiration from Levon Helm’s fabled Midnight Rambles – the intimate, star-studded hootenannies hosted by the late great Band co-founder at his Woodstock home – this unique gathering is curated by Roddy Hart and features Helm’s daughter Amy, heir apparent to his giant musical legacy and herself a gifted singer-songwriter. They are joined by an Atlantic-spanning cast of contemporary artists who share Helm’s rootsy independence of spirit and endless relish for music-making, performing a mix of their own material and some favourites from his back catalogue. Guests include folktronica pioneer Beth Orton, currently winning fresh acclaim for new album Sugaring Season; all-conquering post-trad trio Lau; the ever-bewitching Rachel Sermanni; hot new country-rock combo Corey Chisel & The Wandering Sons; Irish indie-pop chanteuse Gemma Hayes; Admiral Fallow’s Louis Abbott, Ben Knox Miller of The Low Anthem fame and Glasgow’s own Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire as house band.
