A real rising star on the blues roots scene is coming to The Plough Arts Centre in Torrington on Friday (December 8) – and she is not one you’ll want to miss.

Elles Bailey has a true made-for-the-blues voice that is husky, soulful and she has a talent for crafting and seamlessly weaving rootsy blues, country and rock with a contemporary edge.

The Bristol-based singer is winning plaudits around the country and the BBC’s Gaby Roslin has described her voice as ‘incredible’.

It was not created by a life spent in blues joints, but rather a serious childhood bout of pneumonia, which changed it forever.

An ENT visit revealed no permanent damage, but the specialist predicted: ‘If she ever wants to sing, she’ll be a natural blues vocalist’!

Now, the miracle girl with the made-for-the-blues voice has just released her debut album, Wildfire.

The gig starts at 8pm and Elles will be supported by North Devon country artist Miss Courtney Rose.
