210909_nataliemerchantFirst headline show in over 7 years announced for November

In addition to her upcoming appearance at the opening gala of this year’s London Jazz Festival on November 13th, Natalie Merchant will play her first headline performance in the UK in a very long time at Conway Hall in Holborn, London. The November 16th event, dubbed ‘An Evening With Natalie Merchant’, will showcase some of the songs from Natalie’s forthcoming album – her first for Nonesuch Records – as well as selections from her 28-year musical career. Tickets are priced at £25 plus booking fee and are on sale now through LiveNation.co.uk. If you can’t make that show, then clear your schedule in plenty of time for next year’s Celtic Connections festival as Natalie will appear at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with Irish band Lúnasa on January 28th as part of the impressive lineup, which also includes Laura Veirs, The Swell Season, Angelique Kidjo, Nell Bryden and more.

Among the events are a Nick Drake tribute featuring Vashti Bunyan, Teddy Thompson, Robyn Hitchcock and Krystle Warren, and a celebration of the 40th birthday of Rounder Records, starring Alecia Nugent and more. Visit celticconnections.com for more details.

From Direct Current Music:


Natalie Merchant makes a long-awaited return next year with an aptly new studio album Leave Your Sleep set for release March 2 on new label home Nonesuch. Details on the project are slim, but we do know that Sleep will be available as both as single disc and 2-CD set. The new project is the former 10,000 Maniacs singer’s first album of new, original material since 2001’s Motherland.
