Singer back in vil­lage for gig

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

A SINGER from Amer­ica’s deep south will re­turn to Langley for a spe­cial one-off gig.

Lisa Mills was born in Mis­sis­sippi and lives in Alabama but en­joys per­form­ing in Langley, where she put on a con­cert at the St Dun­stan Inn in July, when she came for a short hol­i­day with the Ham­mill fam­ily.

She has made friends in the vil­lage and was pleased to ac­cept an in­vi­ta­tion to re­turn to play again.

The singer will per­form a spe­cial one-off gig at Langley Vil­lage Hall next month, and lo­cal mu­sic fans say this should be one to get in the di­ary.

Nigel Ham­mill, a mu­si­cian friend and farmer who lives in Langley, said: “This is a real priv­i­lege for us, as she’s usu­ally seen in large, well known venues, but she loves Langley and now has many friends here, so is do­ing a spe­cial one-off show for us when she makes a re­turn visit in Oc­to­ber.”

This year she raised $30,000 on Kick­starter to remix her al­bum I’m Changin’ with Grammy win­ning sound engi­neer Trina Shoe­maker, who works with Sh­eryl Crow and other top US artists.

When re­leased in early Fe­bru­ary, the al­bum re­ceived rave re­views in the mu­sic press and went straight to No.1 in the Mis­sis­sippi blues charts, as well as No.1 in Alabama. This re­sulted in op­por­tu­ni­ties for live shows in the New York area as well as her na­tive south­ern states.

The con­cert is on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 24. She will play one other show in the UK then re­turn to New York for dates there. Lisa will per­form most of I’m Changin’ and copies will be avail­able to buy.

Tick­ets at £12 (£10 conc) are avail­able from Nigel Ham­mill on 01260 252325, or from the St Dun­stan Inn.
