There are now only a few tickets remaining for diverse singer-songwriter Imelda May’s Parr Hall performance in November.
The Warrington date was added to the tour, which includes London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall, following phenomenal demand.
Imelda has been enjoying a positive response to her top five album Life. Love. Flesh. Blood. which features singles Girl I Used to Be, Call Me, Black Tears and Should’ve Been You.
Hauntingly beautiful acoustic ballad, Girl I Used to Be, is a memoir of Imelda’s life growing up in the Liberties area of Dublin and the lessons learned which she will pass on to her daughter.
She said: “I love those old story songs where you’re taken on a journey from beginning to end; songs you’re riveted with, like when you’re in the car and you sit in the driveway because you can’t turn the radio off, you have to listen to the end of the story.
“The lyrics are about my family and my daughter, and myself and my life growing up in Dublin.
“We didn’t have much money but my parents are fabulous, creative and open-minded people; they gave me art and literature and encouraged me to do whatever was in my heart, and I want to do that with my daughter.”
One of the most critically-acclaimed releases of 2017, the album spent over a month in the Top 20 and recently returned to the Top 10.
Produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett, Life. Love. Flesh. Blood. was recorded over seven days in Los Angeles and features musical contributions from Jeff Beck, Jools Holland (who “discovered” Imelda) and an accomplished group of backing musicians who between them have performed with the likes of Tom Waits, Robert Plant and The Last Shadow Puppets.
Imelda has become one of Ireland’s most celebrated female artists, has performed alongside legendary artists including Lou Reed and Smokey Robinson, and can count high profile artists like Bob Dylan and Bono as fans.
