Pauline Alexander Returns to the Globe

Pauline AlexanderScottish duo Pauline Alexander and Edwin Gallacher return to The Globe Inn in Glossop for their third gig at the venue in three years.  Pauline has been described as having the "voice of an angel" and "one of the finest voices to have emerged in the Scottish folk scene in recent times" whilst Edwin’s guitar has a sympathetic quality that marries beautifully with her voice.

In the short time that they have been together, the duo have supported the triple platinum selling artist Rumer, been nominated for an Isambard Folk Award, toured folk clubs and festivals around England and Scotland as well as appearing on STV Glasgow’s Riverside Show.  They have also opened for Dougie MacLean and more recently, The Pearlfishers during their Celtic Connections show.

Unemployment was what ultimately lead to Pauline’s foray into music when she was made redundant from her day job.   Dreading the scrutiny and contempt you had to go through whilst signing on she decided she could not be any less well off if she were a full time musician.  It also inspired her to write an "Unemployment Blues Song".

Pauline Alexander and Edwin Gallacher appear at The Globe Inn in Glossop on Thursday 25th June 2015 at 8pm.  Tickets are priced at £8. More details at the links below or by calling 07512 214 688.
