Sunday 18th October. 8:00pm (doors open 7:00pm).
Long Gallery Abbot House.

Tickets £12. Available from Abbot House on 01383 733266.
This seasoned songwriter from Manchester left her home city at the age of seventeen for Europe, deciding to do a bit of travelling before taking a place at art college. In fact she ended up living there for seven years, mainly in Paris and Geneva, busking, playing bars, clubs and small festivals.

Angie’s time in Europe was spent writing songs which she recorded on her return to England and took around the country’s blues and folk circuit, including two years appearing on the acoustic stage at Glastonbury.

Angie Palmer has been compared to Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Lucinda Williams, but is actually like no-one else. Her music has been categorized as ‘British Americana’ but Angie’s songs have strong European influenced narratives (philosophy, literature, and cinema, and is a potent mix of country, blues, and folk served up with equal measures of aggression and tenderness, immaculate lyrics forged from a true storyteller`s art and all delivered with a delicious hair-in-the-voice approach that gives her a tough edge over her contemporaries.

Angie`s CDs `Road` and `Tales Of Light and Darkness` both made the long-cut for the Mercury Music Prize. They contain stories and tales about love, loss and redemption, good and evil, life and death, light and dark. Some draw heavily on literature such as Steinbeck`s dispossessed in `Rose Of Sharon`, Edgar Allan Poe`s dark visions in `Ravens` and the symbolic landscapes of Mikhael Bulgakov in `Fool`s Gold`.

This is to be expected from an artist of whom HMV Choice wrote when choosing her CD ‘Road’ as one of their Top Ten: “not since Bob Dylan’s mid-60’s output has a singer jammed songs with so many high-culture reference points”.

Tickets for this concert are on sale priced £12 at Abbot House on 733266 and Third Base Records on 722554.
