    HANNAH WHITE band show | CHRISTINA MARTIN duo

    GUEST LIST FULL | Doors 18:45 | Live 19:15 | Finish 22:30

    HANNAH WIHITE Band Show | Saturday 09 March. Thrilled to welcome back one of the UK's fastest-rising singer-songwriters, w guitarist Keiron Marshall and full band. A new album Sweet Revolution (about her life) on label The Last Music Company that includes Andy Fairweather Low, Jimmie Vaughan, Geraint Watkins and more. Tours with Paul Carrack and Ricky Ross/Deacon Blue have seen Hannah playing UK's top venues including The Royal Albert Hall. A Best UK Song AMAUK Award for 'Car Crash' got 2023 underway.

    The searingly autobiographical song came from the About Time album, which won rave reviews across the UK and far beyond. Now comes Sweet Revolution, a bold new chapter in a singular story, in which White has confronted and overcome the formidable challenges that inform her lyrics and make her work so strikingly personal. 

    The album is produced by Michele Stodart of UK folk-pop mainstays the Magic Numbers who, like pedal steel player Holly Carter and drummer Emma Holbrook, is a regular member of Hannah's live band. Sweet Revolution features 11 new compositions, all written solely by White, who sings all lead vocals and plays acoustic guitar and, on the song 'One Foot,' dulcimer, percussion and even didgeridoo.

    The album also includes notable contributions by Marshall on electric and baritone guitar and vocals; Lars Hammersland on Hammond and Rhodes; and other friends such as BRIT Award nominee Beth Rowley, multi-instrumentalist Daisy Chute and (on the closing 'A Separation') Deacon Blue frontman Ricky Ross, with whom White became fast friends after she supported him on his extensive UK and Irish tour in the autumn of 2022. 

    Says Hannah with her customary openness: “This is a collection of songs about going from growing up on a council estate, and all of the hopelessness, the sadness & the loneliness, to homelessness and then finding a sense of power through words and music, and becoming an artist. This is the sweet revolution in my life.”

     

    CHRISTINA MARTIN Duo Show | Saturday 09 March.  Delighted to welcome back Canadian pop/rock acclaimed artist w guitarist and producer Dale Murray. A new album “STORM is a lavish offering capable of re-invigorating a career that can prosper at home, over the border and across the seas to lands packed with receptive potential. Christina Martin shows her mettle, drive and lashings of personal intent to send a record into the world rich with lure and cinematic poise  — THREE CHORDS AND THE TRUTH (UK) SEPTEMBER 2023



    With her brand new album Storm more sweeping and orchestral than ever before, Christina Martin is going from strength to strength. It’s a fine thing to be a lyrical troubadour with honest lyrics that cut like a razor, and it’s a fine thing to be a performer who can make hips shake and tears flow at the drop of a casual chord. But to hold both in the palm of your hand, as Martin does with such grace, is downright remarkable. Resolute, raw, and infinitely listenable, Christina Martin is like the wind. Her music can be gentle as a kiss upon your cheek, but if you’re caught off guard it can carry you away, and has the power behind it to blow your house down.”

    SARA PETITE full band show | SARAH JANE SCOUTEN

    GUEST LIST FULL | Doors 18:45 | Live 19:15 | Finish 22:30

     



    Great to welcome back multi award winner Sara, some 10 years from her 2013 show at LRB. Appearing with the powerhouse backline of Scott Warman on bass, Jamie Dawson drums and crack lead guitarist Joe Coombs. With seven full albums “Petite is that rare artist who is so original in her sound that she can’t be pinned down to any or two influences...." American Highways. Described as outlaw country whose music reaches far beyond the genre's borders, Sara Petite has built an award-winning career with songs that owe as much to the rock & roll roadhouse as they do the honky-tonk.

    Meet Sara Petite, a fiery Americana singer-songwriter from San Diego, CA, who has torn up stages for the past 15 years with her band. She has released seven albums, and her current one released last June 9, called The Empress on Forty Below Records, with label president Eric Corne as producer. Her last album Rare Bird, garnered reviews from Americana Highways to American Songwriter magazines praising her; “… she’s still writing and recording her songs from a personal perspective and finding common ground with her listeners all at the same time.”

    Sara has played many stages and venues over the years playing with her band and solo as a headliner or a solo performer. Some of the artists she's opened for are Todd Snider, Lucinda Williams, Josh Turner, Lonestar, The Beat Farmers, John Eddie, Marty Stuart, Railroad Earth, and Rhett Miller. Venues played The Belly Up (San Diego), The Mint (L.A.), Hotel Congress (Tucson, AZ), The Basement, and AmericanaFest in Nashville, TN. A splash of festivals and concert series include ones from California to the U.K., Dogwood Festival in Knoxville, Sycamore Fest - Bloomington, Indiana to Maverick Festival (UK), and the Garden Festival (UK) and various ones in her hometown of San Diego, CA.

     

    SARAH JANE SCOUTEN

     

    Sarah Jane Scouten’s new fifth album TURNED TO GOLD (Light Organ Records) is a road trip album, drawing on Tom Petty, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Christine McVie. Opening up the record, “Wanderlust” is a highway dream. “Wilder When I Was With You”, with its irresistible chorus, was co-written with Samantha Parton (BeGood Tanyas). “Rose and Carnations” is a tribute to John Prine and “The Great Unknown” reveals a family experience of medical assistance in dying (MAID). For the title track “Turned to Gold”, Sarah Jane revisits the impact of the sudden loss of her biological mother, exploring the theme of alchemical transmutation. Made in a heatwave in Vancouver, she collaborated with producer Johnny Payne (The Shilohs), Matt Kelly on keys and guitars (City and Colour), Leon Power on drums (Frazey Ford) and James McEleney on bass (Andrew Collins Trio).  

    Sarah Jane Scouten has been nominated for 4 Canadian Folk Music Awards, a Western Canadian Music Award and an International Folk Music Award. She has performed at Vancouver Folk Music Festival, MerleFest, Calgary Folk Music Festival, Salmon Arm Roots and Blues, Dranouter Festival, Maverick Americana Music Festival and more. She has opened for Corb Lund, William Prince, Ron Sexsmith, The Sadies and shared the stage with Martha Wainwright, The Strumbellas, Allison Russell, Martin Carthy, Mandolin Orange (Watchhouse) and more. According to CBC q’s Tom Power, "Stan Rogers was able to do it, Ron Hynes was able to do it, Kate McGarrigle was able to do it – and Sarah Jane Scouten is able to do it."
