Event description
Plus support Matt Owens
Thea Gilmore releases “Small World Turning” on May 17 - her first new collection of songs since 2017’s “The Counterweight” which was her 3rd successive top 40 album. She also embarks on a UK tour with her band and support from Matt Owens (Noah And The Whale).
An artist of enduring international acclaim (Bruce Springsteen regularly names her as a favourite) and a justly revered lyricist, Gilmore’s musical settings have taken many ingenious detours in recent years. “Small World Turning” nails it’s colours to a very different wall from the get-go. Acoustic guitars are back to the fore, and a quintessentially rootsy array of instruments frame them - fiddles, whistles, mandolins, tenor banjos are all in abundance.  “Small World Turning” is an album with an unashamed folk flavor and features contributions from **** Dillon, Seth Lakeman, Sam Lakeman, Katriona Gilmore, Jamie Roberts and BBC Radio 2’s Young Folk Award winner 2013 Ciaran Algar.
A gifted and exceptional artist at the peak of her powers, Thea Gilmore has delivered a vibrant and deeply resonant album, rooted in folk music but completely transcending any genre related limitations. 
“Unarguably one of the finest singer-songwriters of her generation” Sunday Times Culture
“The best wordsmith of her generation” The Independent
