Following rapturous receptions last time around, New York alt-country chanteuse Laura Cantrell makes a return to Britain with the following dates over the coming weeks:
29th - Birkenhead Pacific Road Arts Centre
30th - Nottingham Rescue Rooms
2nd - Cambridge Folk Festival
3rd - Cambridge Folk Festival
4th - Cardiff Barfly
5th - Chester Telford's Warehouse
7th - Glasgow Grand Ole Opry
9th - Leicester Summer Sundae Festival
Cantrell recently played the Kilkenny Rhythm and Roots festival, where her backing players included sometime co-songwriter Francis Macdonald of Teenage Fanclub, followed by a debut headline slot on the Friday night of the prestigious Opry Plaza in Nashville. Last year, following the release of her second critically acclaimed album 'When the Roses Bloom Again', she earned the patronage of Elvis Costello, being invited to support him on his extensive US tour, and is currently widely tipped for mainstream success.
Tour Support comes on the first two dates from Tom Clelland and, at Cardiff, Chester and Glasgow, from Amy Allison.
