NEWS: Laura Marling To Play Manchester O2 Apollo In March

After releasing third album, A Creature I Don’t Know, in September of this year. Laura Marling is cementing her place as one of the most talented solo artists this county has produced in the noughties.

 Her success has brought mainstream attention to the once endearingly shy songstress. Her two previous albums, Alas I Cannot Swim and I Speak Because I Can, were both nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and, this year, she even won a Brit Award – adding further to her popularity.

 After being a part of the original Noah And The Whale line up and riding the ‘nu-folk’ wave along with Mumford & Sons she has set herself apart with a sound that has its influences, (with Joni Mitchell the obvious comparison) but is incredibly unique.

 She’s had a busy year having done a tour of some of Britain’s best loved Cathedrals as well as playing at a handful of festivals including Glastonbury, Green Man, and The End Of The Road.

 Hopefully she will have a nice break over Christmas and New Year as 2012 sees her  embark on her biggest UK tour to date. Having played Manchester Town Hall in 2009 she now gets to headline at the Apollo. Known for her intimate performances, it will be interesting to see if she can keep that feeling when playing to such large audiences.
