Carter Sampson plus Jesse Aycock & Lauren Barth
SATURDAY 12TH MAY 2018
Carter Sampson – the self-penned “Queen Of Oklahoma” – is heading in her red boots to Glasgow for a show in May 2018.
Carter, whose fourth album Wilder Side has brought her music to a much wider and hugely appreciative audience, plays The Glad Café on the city’s southside on May 18, with support from Lauren Barth and Jesse Aycock.
It will be the opening night of a UK tour for Carter, who usually plays around 220 gigs a year.
Wilder Side, with its overarching themes of “heartbreak and highways,” is her fourth, full-length album and it’s rammed with soulful and soft country sounds.
Critics have praised her pure country output while making justified comparisons to the likes of Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris.
Carter, currently working on new material, is also the founder and director of Oklahoma City’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls, which partners with non-profit organisations to empower girls and women through music education.
“She sings with conviction and writes with honesty, detailing her own lonesome heart and gypsy soul in darker moments but also lightening up with her offbeat desire to become the queen of Oklahoma” Rob Adams- The Herald
Jesse Aycock and Lauren Barth, both Oklahoma residents and signed to Horton Records, will be performing songs from their albums as a duo.
Show starts 8.00pm
