So, we’ve made it to double figures in gigs, the tenth Elba Sessions Presents… is upon us. We’ve got another nice wee line up and this time it’s soloists galore!
Heading up our bill is Finn Lemarinel. We’ve been hoping to get Finn to play for the last couple of months so we’re really pleased to have him. If you haven’t already heard Finn then we’d really recommend checking him out. In the same way that Elba favourite RM Hubbert does, Finn uses all parts of the guitar to help the songs get a bit of a percussive element and has a great voice to go along with it. You may indeed be familiar with Finn’s band Trapped in Kansas but there is a definite difference between his solo stuff and band stuff. He was also recently named the Glasgow PodcART Artist of The Week, but don’t let that put you off (ho ho ho 😉 ).
Joining Finn on the bill is Shauna Joy. Shauna was recommended to us by Dochan at The Liquid Ship, her show is well worth catching and she has such a great bluesy voice, we’ll all be wishing we were in the deep south of America.
Finally, completing our bill, is Lynne Louden. She’s been holed up demo-ing some tracks recently and we feel very privileged to put her on stage as a solo artist for the first time. In her wild days she toured the UK with her band Kirby but she has since hung up the fishnets in favour of some more comfortable shoes. Looking to promote her brand of ‘Scots-Americana’, she plays songs of warm heartbreak tinged with a chunk of wry humour and a western-isles tinged vocal (i’m assured this is all Glasgow though).
We’d love to see you at The Liquid Ship on Thurs 2nd of September, Free entry as per usual and doors open at 9pm.
Oh, and it’s our birthday next month, so expect us to wheel out some old favourites for that one!!
