Revelation Ashford presents: 
Martha Wainwright

Tuesday 31st January 2017
7:45pm to 10:30pm (Doors 7pm)
General Admission: £22/£26 (door)         
Under 16s: £18/£22 (door) Under 16’s must be accompanied by an Adult

With an undeniable voice and an arsenal of powerful songs, Martha Wainwright is a beguiling performer and a refreshingly different force in music. Martha began building a buzz with her well-noted EPs, prior to her 2005 critically and commercially successful debut LP, ‘Martha Wainwright’. London’s Sunday Times included one of the songs as song of the year and Rolling Stone called it “a blistering prelude to her debut album.‘Goodnight City’ is poised to be her best record yet. This album returns to the rawness of her first release and includes songs by Martha, as well as songs written by notable artists to highlight her incredible voice. These songs are written by her friends and other great songwriters such as Beth Orton, Glen Hansard, her brother Rufus Wainwright, Michael Ondaatje, and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs.Martha tours her music around the world to sold out audiences on several continents, and this is not surprising being daughter of American folk singer Loudon Wainwright and Canadian singer songwriter Kate McGarrigle. Martha was raised in a musically gifted family and therefore her brilliant music is a reminder of her background in folk.
