Allison Russell and support

Celtic Connections, Oran Mòr, Glasgow

From: January 28th 2024
to: January 28th 2024

Her first solo album, Outside Child, won singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet and activist Allison Russell a raft of honours including three Grammy Award nominations, the Juno Award for Contemporary Roots Album of the Year, and the 2022 Americana Music Association’s Album of the Year Award. The Canadian artist raises her voice with even more power and purpose in her follow-up album, The Returner – giving a soulful expression of Black liberation, Black love, and Black self-respect. Featuring a ‘Rainbow Coalition’ of all-female musicians and special guest appearances from the legendary Wendy & Lisa, Brandi Carlile, Brandy Clark, and Hozier, the album affirms Russell’s place among contemporary music’s most vital artists.
