Carol Laula and Friends Oc­to­ber 31, Tron Vic Bar, Glas­gow

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - Front Page -

Last year marked the 25th an­niver­sary of Still, the ac­claimed de­but al­bum by Carol Laula, a mu­si­cian and singer-song­writer de­scribed as one of Pais­ley’s “most in­flu­en­tial women” in the town’s bid to be 2021 City of Cul­ture.

Laula head­lines this cel­e­bra­tion of fe­male in­de­pen­dent mu­sic artists from Pais­ley, and the show in­tends to shine a light on the num­ber of great women mu­si­cians on the go at a time when fes­ti­vals are in­creas­ingly ques­tioned about the bal­ance of their line-ups.

Also fea­tur­ing will be Lisa Kowal­ski, acous­tic folkie Linzi Clark and Jor­dan Ste­wart, a 16-year-old ris­ing star who re­cently per­formed at St Mir­ren Park dur­ing half time. Marie Collins, singer-song­writer and one quar­ter of ac­claimed Pais­ley band The Ve­gan Leather, will also per­form.

In March this year, Laula, Kowal­ski, Clark, Ste­wart and Collins per­formed to­gether in a se­ries of live shows called Wicked Women at Pais­ley Arts Cen­tre, as part of In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day.

Laula says this event aims to build on that sell-out suc­cess.”I loved col­lab­o­rat­ing with the women so we de­cided to do it all over again at The Tron,” she says.

Pais­ley-based singer song­writer Lisa Kowal­ski will join Carol Laula, Marie Collins and more for the cel­e­bra­tion of in­de­pen­dent women mu­si­cians
