Martha Wainwright Archived

The songs of Martha Wainwright are a window into her life. She is an honest, vulnerable and dramatic performer who sings without artifice or pretension, a trait that has seen her gain a loyal following of fans over her seven-album career.

Whether she’s on her own with an acoustic guitar or being backed by an orchestra, Martha Wainwright can captivate an audience with her intimate, spell bounding delivery. Her latest album Goodnight City was described as “uplifting and powerful” by The Guardian and saw her experimenting with everything from “lush, synth-and-saxophone pop” to “Patti Smith-type punk”. Catch this special performer at the Foundry this July.

The Foundry, The University of Sheffield, Western Bank, S10 2TG.
