NEWS: Laura Marling to tour UK Cathedrals, will play Manchester in October

Twice Mercury nominated artist Laura Marling returns to Manchester this October as part of a UK tour with a twist.  The 21 year old folk singer-songwriter will release her hotly tipped third album A Creature I Don’t Know on September 12th but before then she’ll be performing exclusively in some of the UK’s best loved Cathedrals.

Marling took home the Best British Female Solo Artist prize at the Brit Awards in February, her new record follows 2010’s I Speak Because I Can and her 2008 debut Alas I Cannot Swim, both received glowing reviews. Laura Marling started young, bursting onto the UK indie scene when she was just 16 years old.  After posting a collection of songs onto her Myspace profile she quickly gained a thriving fanbase would couldn’t get enough of her earthy, stripped down sound.

The When The Bell Tolls Tour will see Marling arrive at Manchester Cathedral on Monday the 24th October for an intimate night of music. Expect a mixture of old favourites and exciting new tracks.
