The Medicine Show Radio Revue Presents

Carrington MacDuffie

plus Fraser Anderson

Austin Indie High Priestess includes Bath Fringe on her 50 date European Tour, described as Carol King meets Grace Jones
Fraser Anderson Hailed by Howard Thompson (Former Head of A&R, Elektra Records) as “the best singer-songwriter I’ve heard in a long time”, the BBC’s Bob Harris as a “truly beautiful voice” and by Rolling Stone Magazine as “one to keep an eye on”, Anderson is a “truly remarkable artist” (BBC Radio Wales). Likened to Damien Rice’s emotionality, Glen Hansard’s crafted storytelling, the intensity of Nick Drake and the lively humour of John Martyn, Anderson stands out in his own right.
If you haven’t heard Anderson’s music yet, you are in for a treat. Words fail to prepare you for the delicate warm and comforting tones of his voice More info and booking...
