Coun­try girl Lisa T to play in­ti­mate EK show

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - An­drea O’Neill

A ris­ing young La­nark­shire singer song­writer will next month per­form an in­ti­mate acous­tic gig in her home­town.

Lisa T has been grow­ing in pop­u­lar­ity lo­cally and na­tion­ally with her vo­cal tal­ents and song in­ter­pre­ta­tion win­ning her rave re­views wher­ever she ap­pears.

The 20-year-old civil ser­vant from East Kil­bride re­cently played her big­gest gig to date sup­port­ing Baz Warne of The Stran­glers fame, play­ing to around 250 peo­ple. She also opened for UK Coun­try Duo of the Year Rain­town be­fore per­form­ing at Bel­ladrum Tar­tan Heart Fes­ti­val in the High­lands.

Lisa Thom­son, a for­mer pupil of St Hi­lary’s Pri­mary and St An­drew’s and St Bride’s High School, re­turns to her roots play­ing East Kil­bride’s Bon­nie Prince Char­lie pub on Oc­to­ber 3 – a night of qual­ity live mu­sic not to be missed.

The gifted acous­tic gui­tarist, who also plays pi­ano, is set to play an eclec­tic mix of Amer­i­cana Coun­try songs and her own orig­i­nal ma­te­rial.

Lisa told La­nark­shire Live: “It’s re­ally ex­cit­ing to bring this show to my home­town.

“I write and per­form mainly coun­try mu­sic and my big­gest in­flu­ences come from Car­rie Un­der­wood, Dolly Par­ton and Mi­randa Lam­bert.

“I first got into coun­try mu­sic when I was about 15. I went to pi­ano lessons, and then dis­cov­ered a love for singing. I per­formed at a few con­certs in school, and then went on to com­plete my HND at The Academy of Mu­sic and Sound.

“I started gig­ging in EK first – I nor­mally play the West­wood Bar, The Oys­ter­catcher, Tin­to­Ta­pas and the Mur­ray Bar. I also worked in a wed­ding band called Stu­dio for nearly two years. My gig in the Char­lie gives my au­di­ence a chance to hear my mu­sic up close and per­sonal, as it can be some­times dif­fi­cult in a pub. I have a few new songs to de­but on the night.”

Lisa’s EP, ‘LISA T’ will be on sale on the night for £5.

Sup­port on the night comes from another tal­ented young singer song­writer from Stone­house, Shelby.

She will kick off the evening’s en­ter­tain­ment with her own unique brand of acous­tic guitar mu­sic.

The en­er­getic Dar­ren Hut­ton, from East Kil­bride, will also per­form a mixed bag of pop­u­lar cov­ers and his own in­die style mu­sic. En­try is £6 on the door or you can book tick­ets by tex­ting Lisa T on 07985174743.
