Singer-songwriter Judith Owen is best known to UK audiences as the exquisite voice of Richard Thompson’s 1000 Years of Popular Music.
Owen has been described by Jamie Cullum as ‘a female Randy Newman’ and by The New York Times as having ‘the kind of wailing folk-jazz voice that slices away surfaces to touch the vulnerable emotional nerve endings and leave you quivering’.
Drawing from her rich repertoire, she performs songs from the past and present, including material from her latest release The Beautiful Damage - Songbook Vol. 1. Also appearing as a special guest is Owen’s muse and lifetime collaborator Harry Shearer.
