With an undeniable voice and an arsenal of powerful songs, Martha Wainwright is “one of the most compelling performers you could hope to see” (The Telegraph). Hailing from “the ridiculously talented Wainwright/McGarrigle clan” (The Scotsman), the acclaimed singer-songwriter shares “her mother’s gracefully lilting voice and borrows her older brother Rufus’s witty frankness” (Pitchfork).
Her new album, Goodnight City, features songs by iconic songwriters such as Beth Orton, Glen Hansard and her brother Rufus, and is the perfect vehicle for her “unequivocally powerful” (The Independent) voice. Wainwright will be joined on the Colston Hall stage by a very special guest, the Kentucky songstress Angaleena Presley, whose latest work ‘Wrangled’, in her own words, poignantly paints “a musical picture of loss, surrender, resurrection, redemption, and connection with real people who make and support honest music.”
