Fiercely independent American singer songwriter, Michelle Shocked is known for her powerful and passionate performances.
She will be celebratingthe 25th anniversary of the release of her highly unusual debut THE TEXAS CAMPFIRE SONGS. Recorded in a field on a Sony Walkman and without her knowledge, it was released – unedited and unauthorised – and hit the top of the UK charts in 1986, so beginning a recording career that spawned the hit for which she is best known, “Anchorage”.
Charismatic and politically driven, Shocked is sure to deliver a performance laden with her trademark warmth and humour.
