PREVIEW: Rachel Sermanni plays the Holy Trinity Church, Leeds

108Later this month, the young Scots songstress Rachel Sermanni returns to the Holy Trinity Church in Leeds. She was last here some three months ago as part of the inaugural High & Lonesome festival, a wonderful day spent celebrating the influence of Americana on modern music.

On Saturday 28th February Rachel Sermanni will again perform in the intimate surroundings of this beautiful Grade 1 Listed building. Located deep in the heart of Leeds city centre, the ethereal atmosphere of this active Georgian church lends itself quite perfectly to her enchanting take on contemporary folk music.

As she had been at the High & Lonesome festival, Rachel Sermanni will once more be accompanied by the Canadian folk and roots musician Tom Terrell. Expect to hear songs from Sermanni’s forthcoming second album Tied To The Moon, which is due to be released in May; some old favourites; and her charming between-song storytelling, liberally laced with her sparkling humour and wry observations on life.
