Need we say more........ singer songwriter, painter, essayist - thirty five highly acclaimed records and published five books. His last record release, ‘The Rose of Roscrae’, a 52 track "folk opera" on the West was recognised as maybe the most important Americana record of all time by UK Folk, the top Folk album of 2015 by Mojo Magazine, and hailed in top ten lists in two dozen publications including The Los Angeles Times. Tom's songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Nanci Griffith, kd Lang, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Ian Tyson, Iris DeMent, Joe Ely and a hundred others. He has appeared on the David Letterman TV show five times. He graduated from The University of California with a Master's Degree in Criminology and has been doing justice to great song writing ever since. A better recommendation, we could not offer for Tom Russell. He'll be arriving with a bunch of new songs to parade at The Met.


Sam Baker

Saturday February 10

The Met, Bury
Tickets £16
Tickets available from the Box Office on 0161-761-2216 or online via venue (plus per transaction booking fee of £2.50)
Sam Baker returns to The Met with his fifth album, 'Land of Doubt'. Those familiar with his work will be aware of his tender, observational songs that seek out beauty in every nook and cranny. Perhaps, he describes the new record best, “I wanted a cinematic feel, a mixture of sparsity and tension…And beauty…I always come back to beauty on my records. That’s shorthand for something that's bigger than me.” To achieve this from yet another angle, he has laid aside his acoustic guitar and picked up an electric one. In just the same way he moves from camera to paintbrush in his art, it's a seamless change which still captures that beauty he seeks. Make sure you get your tickets soon for one of the finest American songwriters working today.
