Jumpin' Hot Club Presents
LAURA VEIRS & BAND
Tuesday 14 June, 2022. 8pm
Rescheduled from Monday 11 October, 2021. Tickets for original date still valid.
£16 adv. Plus booking fee when booked online.
Statement from the band:
aura and her management have made the call to move Laura’s UK dates into 2022. Laura is very concerned about either catching covid early in the tour and having to cancel the remainder of the dates, or catching it towards the end and be stuck in the UK for a 10 day quarantine period unable to get home to her kids.
With a new album being out in April or May 2022, moving the touring to June 2022 seemed the safest time, as well as the most productive and most likely to succeed with new music.
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
