ABBEY HOUSE GARDENS, Malmesbury

Malmesbury Acoustic Sessions are proud to bring Anglo-American songstress Sarah Gillespie to our town for the first time in October. Renowned for mixing blues, folk & jazz with her streetwise poetic lyrics Sarah’s performances are a blend of literature festival meets jazz club. Sarah will be drawing on songs from her four critically acclaimed albums in an intimate solo performance at the gorgeous Abbey House Gardens library.

‘Superior lyrics & compositional acumen flourish in the hands of a truly powerful band.’ R&R Magazine ★★★★★

‘Beat poet adventurer strays beyond the boundaries of singer-songwriter’ MOJO ★★★★

‘Just beautiful’ Robert Wyatt

As a singer-songwriter Phil King has the whole trinity: a beautiful, soulful singing voice; deft skills at playing the guitar and the capacity to write elegantly worded and powerful songs. His new album The Wreckage released earlier this year has already caught excellent media attention with Radio 2’s Bob Harris describing him as “Absolutely Brilliant” and a “Song Weaver”. With years of touring under his belt Phil is embarking on a string of solo shows to promote his new live album.

“Always lyrical, tuneful and emotional, lovers of the darker side of folk and roots-based music will find plenty to enjoy.” – R2 Rock’n’Reel Magazine

“Stunningly Beautiful, The Wreckage should expand his profile considerably.” – Folk Radio UK
