Glasgow Americana 15th Annual Festival

21 Sep 2021 2:47 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Glasgow Americana returns with yet another strong and varied line up between the 29th September- 3rd October 2021.
We will have nine shows this year at six different venues over the 5-day period and bringing some of the best talent from home and abroad
Our opening night will feature UK-based Australian singer-songwriter Emily Barker who will perform in Cottiers Theatre in the West End. Kicking off the night and declaring GA officially open up will be Scottish singer-songwriter, Kirsten Adamson.
Thursday 30th September sees a choice of shows from local favourite and hugely talented Jill Jackson, who will play a headline show in Saint Lukes

We are so happy to see Nathan Bell making the trip to Glasgow in these troubled times for his Thursday show in The Admiral. Nathan has been steadily building an audience in Glasgow since his debut here at Celtic Connections 2017. 

Long Ryders front man Sid Griffin plays The Admiral on Friday 1st October, meanwhile over in the South-Side Nashville-based singer Diana Jones plays a sold out show in The Glad Cafe.
The very talented Scottish singer-songwriter Roseanne Reid will headline the matinee show back in The Glad Cafe on Saturday 2nd October, with the equally talented David Latto opening up the show.

Roseanne is doing a double shift on the Saturday and will be performing as part of a ‘Song Writers In The Round’, with Jill Jackson and multi-instrumentalist and hugely talented Cahalen Morrison.

Moving on to our final day, Sunday the 3rd October, we are delighted to have the Seven Song Club back at the festival. This year, we will be showcasing Scottish talent, with Man Of The MinchThe Coaltown Daisies andKirsteen Harvey taking the stage in Room 2.

We are thrilled to welcome My Darling Clementine back to Glasgow Americana as they continue to tour in support of their most recent, critically acclaimed album 'Country Darkness - the songs of Elvis Costello’. The husband and wife duo of Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish play The CCA at 8pm.

Festival director Kevin Morris said: “I am so proud of this line up, which was put together at short notice and glad to be given the opportunity for the 15th Glasgow Americana festival to actually happen. The fact that a festival like Glasgow Americana can still exist, in what has been such a strange time for musicians, venues and promoters alike makes me happy. I would also like to thank Creative Scotland for their continued support in allowing the festival to go ahead.”
