Described by the NME as a “delinquent Carole King”, singer-songwriter Beccy Owen will perform songs from her new album at a Morecambe venue this Saturday (March 29).

Beccy’s latest record ‘Imago’ comes five years after her previous release and is largely influenced by some traumatic experiences during this time.

It’s a part break-up, part coming-of-age album recorded over a 24 hour period using a ‘one take’ live approach and has been described by Spindle magazine as, “wildly creative but endlessly beautiful”.

It was released after fans donated more than £3,000 to help fund it.

Her musical experience is diverse, from leading community choirs to releasing an album with her band Sharks Took The Rest and even making new theatre across the North of England, including the award-winning piece Lands of Glass.

Beccy will be supported at The Hothouse by Anglo-Flemish indie-folk duo, the Low Countries (Nigel Parrington and Els D’hooge) and Lancaster singing group, the Kitchen Collective.

The Kitchen Collective is a group of creative singers, songwriters and musicians based at The Dukes, who add a bit of kitsch and funk to contemporary and classic songs.

The show starts at 8pm.

Tickets cost £8 (£5 concessions) in advance.

They can be bought by calling 01524 831 997 or visit The Hothouse, home of More Music, on Devonshire Road in the West End.
