we don’t have to wait quite so long again until the next time we see Rachel Harrington in Sheffield. Our patience was certainly rewarded with a beautiful show on Friday night at The Greystones, helped in no small part by a fine opening set from Paul McClure. Thanks to all who came along.

Paul McClure makes a relatively swift return to Sheffield when he joins us at Shakespeares on Thursday October 12th for a band set along with Clubhouse Record label mates Case Hardin. A Prayer Away also open this show. Tickets are on sale here.

Next for WagonWheel Presents… though we’re back at The Greystones on Wednesday August 30th when the circus comes to town, Curtis Eller’s American Circus. Full details can be found here. Tickets for this one are selling very well, so be sure to grab yours to guarantee your place under the Big Top.

***RACHEL HARRINGTON***

 

Reared among the Pentecostal pines in the farthest corner of the American West, Rachel Harrington’s albums have lauded her high praise. When Bob Harris first heard her in ‘07, he hailed her debut as, “Absolutely brilliant [and] already a contender for album of the year.” Four records later, she’s accrued a fecund garden of similar blossoms including top reviews from Q, Mojo, The Irish Times, and a basketful of songwriting awards. Returning to the UK after a five-year hiatus from touring, this sixth generation Oregonian has new songs and fresh stories you don’t want to miss.

songs that conjure the ghosts of old America”  Mojo

ancient-sounding country noir … Harrington is all about what’s left off her songs, and the skeletal arrangements leave the listener to fill in the unspoken terrors and tenderness that lie beneathQ

a first rate songwriter and performer, with a collection of highly personal songs that pull no punchesNorthern Sky

winning formula … the American folk of pre-electric country … an accomplished and engaging musician and singer …Harrington’s honest unaffected voice injects that essential leavening of “truth” into her songs”  Americana UK
