    Anne McCue

    Saturday 11th July 2015, Skylight Crowd, open our evening with international artist Anne McCue


     Skylight Crowd with Amy Westney open this very special LRB evening featuring international artist Anne McCue.

    We've been big fans of guitarist/singer/songwriter Anne McCue for many years so we are more than thrilled to be so closely involved with her visit to the UK and appearance at LRB. She will also be featured at this summer's Maverick Festival on July 04th.

    McCue's first solo album, Amazing Ordinary Things, was released in 1999 in Canada and Japan. A US tour with Lucinda Williams followed... "my new favorite artist... and an amazing guitarist".

    Her 2004 album Roll received numerous accolades. Bob Harris named it his album of the year.

    2006 album Koala Motel, one of my personal favourites, features a co-write with LRB friend Janet Robin on the opening track ' Driving Down Alvarado'

    Anne continues to pick up international awards and accolades with songs that stretch from urgent to world-weary with bracing bluntness. She is a potent singer, thoughtful songwriter and tough guitarist.

    Her 6th studio album - Blue Sky Thinkin'  is imminent. The album reunites the band from her critically acclaimed 'Roll' album and allows Anne to explore some of her favourite influences, including Billy Holiday, Charlie Christian, Howlin' Wolf, Memphis Minnie, Astor Piazzola, Peggy Lee, Irving Berlin, Django Reinhardt, Hoagy Carmichael, Bessie Smith...
