Her music is rooted in her hardscrabble history, authentically grounded in her earthy soulful voice. Testifying to her southeast Texas upbringing, with the regions multicultural mix, its Gulf of Mexico coastline, and its shared border with Louisiana’s Acadania,
Amanda’s songs carry a sense, and the sensuality, of the South, weaving themes of home and its loss; love, both surrendered to, and longed for, the ties that bind old friends; and our human experience’s collective memory.
Don’t miss this lady, believe us, another special Music in the Hall awaits us all.
Our main support this evening is from a local favourite performer Bryn Teeling who is performing with the River Thieves. Bryn has a new EP recently released and is an artist that always attracts attention when he plays.
Friday 29th is the date to be uplifted to a special place once again by the fabulous Amy LaVere, with husband Will Sexton, when they return to St Georges Hall.
A burgeoning star, Amy LaVere is becoming renowned worldwide for her songwriting, bass playing, and vocals. She sings with a sweet, haunting voice that can turn on a dime from innocent to lusty (“Norah Jones with an added Cyndi Lauper element” — Mojo Magazine; “Spookiness suits her” — New York Times).
Whether playing as a duo with her husband Will Sexton or with retro-country sensation Motel Mirrors, she’s an inventive, thoughtful singer-songwriter who has crowds throughout the US and Europe smitten.
If you missed them last year, make sure you buy your tickets early this time!
Our main support this month is a young singer songwriter who started by playing in Bewdley pubs at the age of 13 and is now getting a reputation around the country as a tremendous live performer. Esther Turner was the first singer on stage at our inaugural Music in the Hall concert in 2014 and we welcome her back.
This is an evening we are eagerly anticipating.
