Texan songwriter Carrie Rodriguez has announced a headline UK tour next month following the release of critically acclaimed album Lola (which garnered 4 stars in the Guardian) including shows in Birmingham, London and Scotland. Known as a passionate performer, Carrie melds fiery fiddle playing, electrifying vocals and a fresh interpretation of new and classic songs with an “Ameri-Chicana” attitude (that’s a new one for us). Lola is both a return to her musical roots and something of a departure where she delivers her own twangy, Texas-bred twist on Mexican Ranchera songs, creating “culturally blended music for a culturally blended world.” Hear for yourself below.
