This week, Acantha Lang performs.
Acantha Lang is a blues/soul artist born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. After moving to New York City, she began honing her skills and performing regularly at the Harlem Grill and the iconic Cafe Wha?, among other venues.
While in NYC, she met and collaborated with Robert Randolph (and The Family Band) – named as one of Rolling Stone magazine’s ‘100 Greatest Guitarists’. Robert asked if he could re-record one of Acantha’s original songs, ‘Gonna Be Alright’, for his Sony-released album ‘Got Soul’, which went on to be nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album at the 2018 Grammy Awards.
By now, Acantha had relocated to London, where she further developed her blues/soul/funk sound, performing with her band at many of London’s most famous venues, including Ronnie Scott’s, the Jazz Café and the 606 Club.
Acantha Lang Trio – 8pm – 10.30pm
