Gillian Glover to play London and the South

April 29, 2011

Gillian Glover brings her band to the capital ahead of new album launch

Gillian Glover comes to London following tours of the UK, Switzerland and France, playing music that is by turns deeply funky, authentically bluesy, and so delicate that you hold your breath lest it fracture. It’s not hard to hear the influence of her Dad (Deep Purple’s hard-rocking bassist, Roger Glover), in the deep grooves set up by her first-class rhythm section as they propel the band with urgency and drive, before melting subtly into moments of ethereal beauty that transport listeners to another realm. Gillian and her 5-piece band of multi-instrumentalists between them play guitars, bass, drums, percussion, saxophone, violin, flute and kora. Catch them at Weyfest, Surrey, or in London on the cusp of releasing their new album, Still Life With Music, which follows the highly acclaimed debut release Red Handed. Visit www.GillianGlover.com for a taste of what is sure to be one of the most uplifting festival experiences of the summer.
