SCOTTISH Americana musician Daniel Meade is set to return to Shetland for two intimate shows this week.
The Glasgow-based singer-songwriter will be accompanied by guitarist Lloyd Reid for concerts at The String in Lerwick on Thursday and Friday night.
Support for the first gig will come from Adam Guest, while Sheila Henderson will warm things up on the Friday.
Meade and his Flying Mules ensemble previously shared a bill with The Stray Birds and Kansa at Mareel back in 2017, with his set being recorded for an official release Live Mules.
He is now touring his new record Rust, and the track These Things Happen was single of the week on BBC Radio Scotland.
Meade and Reid have regularly toured the UK and Europe as a duo, performing headline dates and backing and opening for artists including Ocean Colour Scene, The Proclaimers, Sturgill Simpson and Old Crow Medicine Show.
“We have worked up a large repertoire of material over the years that we dip into depending on the occasion and audience,” he said.
“Upbeat, downbeat and everywhere in between, these shows will be mainly leaning on material from the three most recent albums we’ve released [When Was the Last Time, Live Mules and Rust]. I’ll have the Gibson acoustic to hold it down, Lloyd will blow you away with his wizardry on his trusty Hofner.
“There will be close harmonies in abundance and hopefully some decent chat as well – no two nights are the same so come to them all.”
Tickets to see Daniel Meade & Lloyd Reid live at The String on Thursday and Friday are on sale online. www.thelittleboxoffice.com/raggedwood/
