Celtic Connections 2012: Zoe Muth & The Lost High Rollers and Turtle Dhuks

Sat 21 Jan 2012 | 7.30pm | £ 14 + bf

Zoe Muth & The Lost High Rollers and Turtle Dhuks come to the Arches, Glasgow as part of Celtic Connections 2012.

Even amid Americana music’s ongoing decade-long purple patch, rarely have pundits been so unanimously excited as they are about young singer-songwriter Zoe Muth, thanks to vocals and wordcraft that have seen the Seattle native – abetted by her superb backing quartet The Lost High Rollers – variously likened to Emmylou Harris, Tammy Wynette, Iris DeMent, Loretta Lynn and Gillian Welch.

With a sound self-styled as “bluegrass/folk/garage”, the Turtle Duhks are a labour-of-love side project featuring clawhammer banjo demon Leonard Podolak, guitarist Jordan McConnell – both of top Canadian neo-traditional band The Duhks – and Turtle Island Dream’s Lydia Garrison on fiddle.

Glasgow’s annual folk, roots and world music festival, Celtic Connections is a celebration of Celtic music and its connections with music across the globe, with more than 300 events in venues and locations across Glasgow from 19th Jan – 5th Feb 2012.
