Peggy Sue on tour AM & Shawn Lee, released a new album

1/3 of Peggy Sue @ Terminal 5 in 2010 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Peggy Sue

Formed in Brighton and now based in London, Peggy Sue was once linked to the U.K.’s “new folk” scene. But Young and fellow singer-guitarist Rosa Slade plugged in their instruments before making “Acrobats,” the group’s second album. On [Sunday at Montserrat House in DC], the minor-key tunes and close harmonies suggested Appalachia’s “high lonesome” sound, while the raucous guitars were more in the spirit of such female-fronted folk-goes-punk groups as Ut and Salem 66. Unlike such precursors, Peggy Sue lacks a bassist. But Young occasionally played bass riffs on her top strings, and Olly Joyce’s distinctive thumping gave an appealing swing to such songs as “Song and Dance,” which featured waltzlike passages. [Washington Post]

UK trio Peggy Sue released Acrobats on 10/25 via Yep Roc and are now on a North American tour in support. That tour, headlined by AM & Shawn Lee (who just released a remix EP), kicked off last night in DC and hits Knitting Factory in Brooklyn this evening (11/7). Telextile is also on the bill and tickets still available.
