The wonderful Gemma Hayes from Ireland has quietly been playing shows at Tangiers every Thursday this month I just found out.
Even though she has been nominated for The Mercury Prize, granted a bigger deal in the UK, very little has been made of these shows I assume on purpose. Often compared from Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez to PJ Harvey on her later works and has open/toured with Beth Orton, Rufus Wainwright and David Gray, Sparklehorse and Zero 7, so these are low key dates.
Randomly checking venue calendars I noticed that she is also playing a free show at the Echo on Monday 4.25 and picked up the Tangier info from her web-board. So you can see her tomorrow and next Thursday or go see her for free on Monday. (Viva K is the resident band on Monday..they sound cool in very different way)

Did you go and see Gemma Hayes in the end? Any chance of a review :)ReplyDelete
Sadly I missed out on the shows following that date. Life got in the way of having fun.ReplyDelete
Reviewing is not my strong point, but I will try to make another show, if there is another. Drag my friend and make him take some pics ideally.
