Following her 2015 triumphant sell out performances, Scotland’s legendary singer/songwriter Isla Grant returns to Australia with exciting new songs - plus her extensive repertoire of most-loved music.

As an internationally acclaimed recording artist, Isla’s beautiful voice encompasses everything from country folk songs to easy listening - an unforgettable evening of old favourites and sparkling new compositions.

Isla grew up in a musical family and learnt to play the guitar. She was influenced by folk music and American country music.

Her albums include The Best of Isla Grant (2004), When the Day Is Done (2005), Faith, Love and Hope (2006), Down Memory Lane (2007), A Dream Come True (2008) and Special to Me (2008) and Lovesick and Blue (2013).

Al Grant, Isla’s talented husband, will bring his irrepressible humour to the show featuring his tribute to Jim Reeves, accompanied by the multi-instrumental and singer Glen Flynn.

Isla’s concert performance promises to be an absolutely unmissable event at Town Hall on October 4 at 7.30pm.
