Melting Vinyl are thrilled to announce that the glorious Martha Wainwright will be crossing the Atlantic this December for a quintet of Christmas shows, including an unmissable performance at St George’s Church!
With a hugely expressive voice and an arsenal of powerful songs, Martha Wainwright is a beguiling entertainer, and a refreshing, different, new force in music. Martha is the daughter of folk legends Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle and sister of acclaimed singer songwriter Rufus Wainwright. Born in New York City and raised in Montreal, she spent her childhood immersed in music and often performing with her parents. She took the first step in her own recording career in 1998 when she contributed her song “Year of the Dragon” to her mother and aunt’s album The McGarrigle Hour. The same year she started singing back-up for her brother both live and on record.
Martha Wainwright releases her eagerly anticipated new album ‘Come Home To Mama’ October 15th, on V2. Written by Martha and produced by Cibo Matto’s Yuka C. Honda, highlights include dramatic opener ‘I Am Sorry’, the perky melodic pop of ‘Can You Believe It’ and the beautiful ‘Proserpina’, written by her late mother, Kate McGarrigle.
Undoubtedly her own person, with her own sense of style, Martha creates her own music with an extraordinary versatile and compelling voice.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see Martha in the beautiful surroundings of St George’s Church this December. Tickets on sale Friday 21st September!
