LINDSAY LOU: Outstanding Michigan songbird Lindsay Lou returns to the UK with her band and a brand new album to promote. The core 3-piece remains the same with a fourth member introduced on percussion/vocals. They previously took Shetland Folk Festival and HebCeltFest by storm on previous visits. After flying in for their own (sold-out) headline show at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections in 2017, they became the talk of the town. Writing at fRoots magazine, Tim Chipping said: “I’m convinced I have seen the most affectingly expressive singer since Amy Winehouse, backed by the new Punch Brothers.” The band was featured in the BBC 2 TV Highlights show filmed at the city’s Royal Concert Hall on the opening night.
