Scot­tish leg­end on tour

South Western Times - - Lifestyle -

FOL­LOW­ING sell-out con­cert per­for­mances in 2015, Scot­land’s leg­endary singer-song­writer Isla Grant returns to Aus­tralia with ex­cit­ing new songs from her lat­est al­bum re­lease I'm A Sur­vivor.

Ac­com­pa­nied by her tal­ented hus­band Al Grant and in­stru­men­tal­ist Glenn Flynn, Grant will per­form an evening of old favourites and new songs at the Bun­bury Re­gional En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre on Oc­to­ber 13.

Com­ing from a musical fam­ily, Grant said she “was al­ways des­tined to be in the music busi­ness” and gar­nered in­spi­ra­tion for her song­writ­ing from Amer­i­can coun­try music leg­end Merle Hag­gard.

Grant said her favourite part of per­form­ing live was “the re­ac­tion from the au­di­ence” – par­tic­u­larly in Aus­tralia.

“They give us such a wel­come over here – I al­ways want to come back be­cause the wel­come we get is se­cond to none.”

“A lot of au­di­ence favourites are go­ing to be in this show for them, songs like Sin­gle Yel­low Rose and

Sweet Baby Mine – and hope­fully they will en­joy the new ones also.”
