Margo Price, one of the finest new voices to come out of the USA, has announced a run of four live UK dates in May, to follow the release of her stunning debut album ‘Midwest Farmer’s Daughter’, which is out April 15th on Jack White’s Third Man Records.
As well as appearing at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, Margo will perform three live shows in London, with headline shows at The Borderline and The Social, and an in store set at Rough Trade East.
Just as Margo’s songs are packed with an alluring mix of vulnerability and resilience, so too is her sensational voice. For a remarkable taste of what’s to come, watch her performance of ‘Hurtin’ On The Bottle’, recorded live at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, here.

The first country signing to Third Man, Margo pulls no punches on her debut as she sings about very real hardships and heartaches – the loss of her family’s farm, the death of her child, drink and brushes with the law on this deeply moving collection of ten original tracks.
Album highlights include opener ‘Hands Of Time’, the honky tonk comeuppance of ‘About To Find Out’, the rockabilly-charged ‘This Town Gets Around’, the hard-hitting blues grooves of ‘Four Years of Chances’ and ‘Tennessee Song’ and the punch drunk ‘Hurtin’ (On The Bottle)’ co-written with Caitlin Rose.
