The creative heart of THE COALTOWN DAISIES is a super-talented duo of singer songwriters: Vivien Bern & Lynzy Mouter, who write and perform dynamic folk, soul and Americana music. Renowned for their spine-tingling vocals and highly engaging live performances, they are much in demand from venues and festivals all across the country. For this show they'll be enhancing the live experience with an expanded band lineup!
The records they have released under their own Ragged Boot Records label feature a lineup of highly established musicians and have been exceptionally well received by listeners the world over; one of their compositions was chosen as the original theme for World Whisky Day and won them the coveted CalMac Culture Music prize.
Their acclaimed album Listen, has been nominated for UK Album of the Year and UK Song of the Year at this year’s British Country Music Association awards. It explores the wide spectrum of Americana; the tracks have been intentionally arranged to draw attention to the album's core theme of mental health. Each song is packed full of incredibly well-thought-out vocals and deliberate instrumentation as well as featuring an absolutely stellar line-up of some of Scotland's most revered musicians. Invoking the likes of Steve Earle, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Bruce Springsteen, Shawn Colvin, Montgomery Gentry and the Indigo Girls, this is an album that definitely should not be missed.
The new year got off to a flying start for The Coaltown Daisies when they played three gigs in one day at Celtic Connections, including a sold out, headlining show at The Glad Cafe. It doesn't look like things will be slowing down either, with upcoming appearances at the Arran Folk Festival and many more to be announced. 2023 is shaping up to be an exciting one for this brilliant band!
Come on down on to The Masonic Hall, Broughty Ferry on Friday May 19th for an evening of fabulous Coaltown Daisies music! Click ticket info link below.
