£16 adv. Plus booking fee when booked online.
Portland based/Bella Union folk/indie recording artist - Laura Veirs has been a regular visitor to Jumpin Hot Club for nearly 20 years. She has released 11 albums and has toured extensively in her 25-year career. She has collaborated with Neko Case, kd lang, Sufjan Stevens, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists and many others. She’s also a podcaster (Midnight Lightning, about musician parents), an award-winning children’s book author (Libba, about folk musician Elizabeth Cotten), a mother and a songwriting teacher through Stanford University.
Her new album My Echo has been met with critical acclaim:
“The author of some of the most insightful songs in the modern country-folk canon. ‘Another Space and Time’, which uses stings and a bossa nova beat in its pondering of other realities, and ‘End Times’, with its lilting, Sunday-school piano, are just two opportunities to swoon.” Uncut – 9/10
“It’s gorgeous… The 10 songs drift between intimacy and rich instrumentation. Among the many highlights are the lovely I Sing To The Tall Man and Freedom Feeling, where Veirs’ intimate voice and guitar morph into something so lush and bright it feels like somebody switched the sky on.” MOJO ★★★★
“Poignant, cathartic, consistently brilliant… Veirs is one of the greatest American songwriters.” The New Statesman
