If ever a birthday called for extended celebrations, it’s surely Bruce Springsteen’s 70th, in September 2019. During his nearly 50-year recording career, The Boss has scored 11 US No.1 albums, winning 20 Grammy awards, two Golden Globes, an Oscar, a Tony and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Roaming Roots Revue 2020 sees an international cast of Springsteen-loving artists take their pick from his peerless back-catalogue, highlighting both its consistent quality and stylistic diversity, alongside selections from their own material. 

With musical direction and house-band backing from Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire, the line-up includes beguiling Irish folk-pop songstress Lisa Hannigan, multi-award-winning US singer-songwriter Ryan Bingham, The Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn and folk-rock duo The Rails. Following the Top 40 success of her Scottish Songbook album, our own Karine Polwart continues to expand her palette, while California-based Jonathan Wilson brings his latter-day Laurel Canyon sound to the party, and Glasgow-born Phil Campbell steps out solo from rootsy blues-rockers The Temperance Movement.
