Angela McCluskey and Friends brings her NYC show to her hometown £12.00

7:30pm Thursday 28th June

Hailed by Vanity Fair as a ‘chortling, cussing, a room-dominating force of nature’ trying to find words to describe this stunning and otherworldly chanteuse is near impossible. If you have met her or been lucky enough to see her perform you would understand why! Now lucky Glasgow audiences will finally have the chance to experience this absent but outstanding singer, she has only played in Glasgow twice in the past 15 years. Returning to her hometown this native Glaswegian is sure to stun the audience as she brings her East Village speakeasy show from New York to Glasgow. Her residency attracts an array of stars from Courtney Love to Jodie Foster. An eclectic audience for an eclectic show! In fact, having hosted two Glaswegians, Horse and James Allen from Glasvegas at her NYC residency, it gave Angela the idea to bring the show to Glasgow. Now this spectacular show will be performed in The Blue Arrow. Her repertoire spans, pop, jazz, dance, having collaborated with Paul Oakenfold, Parov Stellar and Kendrick Lamar to name a few and being signed to Blue Note on the critically acclaimed album ‘The Things We Do’. This one-off show in Glasgow will draw on past work and excerpts from her last album ‘The Roxy Sessions’ Michael Stipe (REM) describes Angela as ‘a singer/songwriter of pathos, beauty, sadness, tempest, magic, love, of life and joy… the voice of all things…’ Surely a show which cannot be missed.
