Americana music star Rachel is back on the road after long break

Much-acclaimed folk-Americana singer-songwriter Rachel Harrington is playing a rare date in Sheffield after a long break from touring.

Rachel will be performing material from her back catalogue, interspersed with selections from her new covers set I Wish I Was In Austin, which will only be available on CD during the tour, with a digital release to follow later in the year.

She is also previewing songs from her forthcoming album Hush The Wild Horses, which is due for release in summer 2019.

Rachel took a year-long sabbatical in 2011, following the release of her last solo album, Celilo Falls.

“Just needed time to recharge. I figured a year would do it. But one year snowballed into many.

I got a job, bought a home, bought horses, settled down near my family.

Once those kinds of roots have been laid, it’s hard to decide to pull up stakes again.”

Rachel Harrington plays The Greystones on Tuesday, October 30.
