Melissa Greener travels all the way from Texas to Lancashire for the next Garstang Unplugged gig.

After good times and bad in Nashville, and years spent knocking on wrong doors, one New Year’s Eve, Melissa suddenly got the idea Austin, Texas was where she should be. There she came to the attention of John Jennings, who had produced for Janis Ian, Iris DeMent, and the Indigo Girls. He produced Melissa’s critically acclaimed Transistor Corazón album and her star is now in the ascendant. See her at The Kenlis Arms in Ray Lane, Barnacre, on Thursday May 15 from 8.30pm. Tickets £10, on the door, on 01995 602795 or at
