Virginia Rose - Midnight Skyracer
Formed in early 2017 our next LCM featured artists are one of the most exciting Bluegrass bands currently in the UK. Midnight Skyracer are a new, Anglo-Irish all-female 5 piece playing hard driving traditional and modern classics, lesser known songs and a few originals. Featuring an all-star lineup of some of the UK’s top instrumentalists and singers (Tabitha Agnew (Banjo); Charlotte Carrivick (Guitar), Laura Carrivick (Fiddle & Dobro); Leanne Thorose (Mandolin) and Eleanor Wilkie (Bass)) , the band takes inspiration from the likes of other great female artists such as Rhonda Vincent and Alison Krauss. We think that they are a real young supergroup of talent and have a very bright future ahead of them. They released their excellent debut album 'Fire' back in February, which is well worth a listen if you haven't already. Our LCM #SongOfTheDay is one of the lead singles the wonderful 'Virginia Rose'.
The band are touring extensively in the UK and Europe and on the festival circuit during the summer. But you can catch them live in #London at The Harrison in Kings X on the 2nd July,
