Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives

Fri 28 Jan 2011 | 7pm | £15 + bf

Having worked with such giants of the genre as Lester Flatt, Doc Watson and Johnny Cash, quadruple Grammy winner Marty Stuart has covered most country music bases in his time, before revisiting its traditional bedrock on his latest album Ghost Train: The Studio B Sessions. A famously consummate showman, Stuart makes his Celtic Connections debut with his aptly named backing trio comprising Kenny Vaughan (guitar), Paul Martin (bass) and Harry Stinson (drums).

Edinburgh band The Marshals’ sound can loosely be described as country rock, although the power pop hooks of Two’s Company and the Stonesy swagger of You Can Have My Heart convey the band’s love of guitars, their way with a catchy chorus and their unabashed belief in the power of rock music as a storytelling medium. Their debut album Westerner, released in the UK in May 2010, received several excellent reviews, including 9/10 from AmericanaUK (“as good as Americana gets”) and five stars in Maverick magazine (“quite simply stunning”).
