LONDON Southbank Centre / Queen Elizabeth Hall
SE1 8 XX
As part of her world tour, the GRAMMY® Award winner comes to play Queen Elizabeth Hall in May with her new album Patty Griffin.
Representing a new chapter for the incomparable singer-songwriter this self-titled album immediately stands among the most deeply personal of her recordings. Griffin’s power lies in how she can express the strikingly intimate while never making it about herself, all wrapped in sparse arrangements that breathe an incomparable force and import into her songcraft.
A quintessentially American artist and widely regarded among the best pure songwriters of her era, Griffin’s work has been performed by everyone from Emmylou Harris to Jeff Back, to Kelly Clarkson.
‘ I’d heard her onstage with Robert Plant, but here I was blown away by the full force of her vocal prowess. It was clear that we were in the presence of someone who can really, really sing ’
‘ Patty Griffin has consistently been one of Americana’s most distinctive performers. It’s her devastating voice and ear for the smallest detail that ultimately makes the difference ’
Opening for Patty is Erika Wennerstrom from The Heartless Bastards with her new album Sweet Unknown.
The Express describes it as a 'spellbinding solo set, her smoky and powerful voice is set against huge blocks of guitar and bass to devastating effect ★★★★'.
