COUNTRY hitmaker Laura Cantrell brings her UK tour to Sheffield City Hall next month and we have tickets to be won.
The Nashville born singer-songwriter will be singing songs from her new album - out on Monday - called Kitty Wells Dresses: Songs of the Queen of Country Music.
Since her 2000 debut album Not the Tremblin’ Kind, she has appeared on the Grand Ole Opry, toured with Elvis Costello, had two tracks, When The Roses Bloom Again and 14th Street, played by Bob Dylan on his Theme Time Radio Hour show, recorded five sessions for the late, legendary BBC radio DJ John Peel, and in 2009 was invited by the Country Music Hall of Fame to present a musical program for their Kitty Wells: Queen of Country Music exhibit, the first ever dedicated exhibit for a female Hall of Fame member.
The concert inspired her song Kitty Wells Dresses and a further album worth of recordings that celebrate the sound and songs of Wells, whose trailblazing commercial and artistic achievements made her Country Music’s first female superstar.
Cantrell plays the Memorial Hall at Sheffield City Hall on Wednesday, May 4, 2011, at 8pm..
Tickets are £14.50 each, may be subject to a booking fee. Buy in person, call 0114 2789 789 or go online at sheffieldcityhall.co.uk
