Lonesome Highway presents

This event is no longer on sale through The Queen's Hall Box Office, but tickets will be available to buy on the door this evening.


Thea Gilmore's latest album Ghosts & Graffiti, due for release this April, is a retrospective with a difference; a 20-track double album where Thea looks both forward and back. It includes all her best known songs on one record for the first time including four new songs, and six newly recorded versions of songs from her back catalogue. 

It features a duet with Joan Baez, a duet with Billy Bragg and a full collaboration with The Waterboys. John Cooper Clarke appears, reading one of Thea’s poems; Joan As Policewoman collaborates on one of Thea’s defining songs; and there are special collaborations with John Bramwell (I Am Kloot) and with King Creosote. 

Thea was the artist chosen by Sandy Denny's estate to set some of the late great writer’s unfinished lyrics to music... and in the process she created a hit album and the song London which became the TV theme to the 2012 Olympic Games.
