Blues songstress Liz Green has announced details of her first ever Irish show whereby she will be performing live at The Academy 2 in Dublin on Wednesday the 30th of November 2011. Tickets priced €11 inclusive of booking fee are on sale now through Ticketmaster and usual outlets nationwide. Click here to buy tickets.
Currently being touted as the UK’s missing link between early Jolie Holland & Karen Dalton, Liz Green is the kind of songwriter who is equal parts hard graft, and in touch with the ephemeral magic of the songwriting muses. As she herself explains, “Seriously. I have song black outs. For the most part I don’t know how they came into being – or what was going through my head when I wrote them. I don’t plan them. They just come out like that. It’s quite nice though – it gives a brilliant sense of editorial perspective.”
After being initially somewhat shy of the stage, she is now a formidable presence and a charismatic figure. “I like a rowdy crowd,” she says now. “I like a dark, dingy room. Like the floorboards have been breathing in passing life for hundreds of years. I like to just start singing and see what happens. It’s an invitation, of sorts”.

“Her delicate songs are a perfect knot of grassroots jazz, muddy blues and homespun folk, and recall the kiss of a needle on a brittle 78… you sense that once the world gets wind of her elegant, spooky songs there will be nowhere for Green to hide” The Observer
“Lilting folk, spiked with venom and stalked by sadness” Sunday Times
