Garstang Unplugged is all set to stage its last gig of 2016 with a return viist of the wonderful Angie Palmer, with Richard Curran on fiddle, mandolin and guitar.

The date is Thursday, November 17 and the music starts at The Kenlis Arms, Ray Lane, Barnacre, Garstang at 8.30pm.

Angie’s music has been dubbed ‘English Americana’ but don’t let this fool you, as she’s a very singular songwriter who crosses genres effortlessly, in her own unique way.

Angie’s life has been a bit different.

Born in Lancaster, Angie spent her childhood moving all over the place with her travelling salesman father.

At 17 she left England for France, deciding to do a bit of travelling before taking up a place at art college.

But, in fact, she ended up living there for seven years, mainly in Paris and Geneva, busking, playing bars, clubs and small festivals.

More latterly she’s carved out a career on both sides of the channel.

Her songs mix strong narrative with the personal but ‘a personal’ that connects with ‘the universal’ and which all reflect the idea of the age-old metaphysical struggle of good and evil, life and death, light and dark.

They’re good stories, with thumpingly good tunes.

Tickets are £10 and available either through the Garstang Unplugged website, by ringing 01995 – 602795 or on the door.

The mayhem and magic of the monthly Singers Night is on Wednesday, November 30 from 8pm.

* Garstang Unplugged exists to encourage and promote all types of acoustic music.
