Following a sell-out gig with John Bramwell last December, Thea Gilmore returns to the Royal Exchange Theatre, for a unique solo gig.
2012 has been a tumultuous year for Thea Gilmore; one of the UKs most enduring songwriters and vocalists.
Her unique collaboration with the late Sandy Denny 'Dont Stop Singing', produced a recent hit album and sold out tour.
The hugely catchy single 'London Town' was a spring airplay hit, opening up a whole new audience to Ms Gilmores music.
She has released 11 albums of her own self-penned music and numbers Bruce Springsteen amongst her most loyal fans.
Catch her, with her full band in concert, for a stunning not to be missed evening of her career highlights.
She will be supported by Fran Smith, an exceptionally gifted singer-songwriter. Her distinctive voice, with its quietly
impassioned Northern tones call to mind folk sirens such as Norma Waterson or Rachel Unthank.
This summer Fran released her much-anticipated debut EP, which features the talents of Thea Gilmore’s acclaimed producer and guitarist, Nigel Stonier.
Her piano-based songs reference the likes of Antony and the Johnsons and Joanna Newsom, but ultimately leave you feeling like you've stumbled upon a completely new, unique, quintessentially English talent.
