Singer back in village for gig
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.
