GRAMMY-nominated US blues singer-songwriter Beth Hart will perform with a full band in Warrington for the first time.

Beth’s music has been described as authentic, brooding and raw – a far cry from the glossy production associated with today’s pop.

Her songbook has been inspired by her chaotic upbringing in LA and her ‘rollercoaster’ life, with its fair share of heartache and trauma.

People experiencing the ‘real’ Beth through her music has led the Grammy-nominated performer to become one of the most sought after artists in the United States’ blues scene. With a career spanning more than two decades, her last three albums have all topped the US Blues Chart.

But the UK is catching on fast with Beth’s 2019 album, War In My Mind, hitting the top 20. Now the American singer-songwriter is coming to Parr Hall for the first time to offer north west fans a rare chance to see her live with a full band.

And Beth can barely contain her excitement.

“It’s like someone’s been starving for three years and someone is about to put a big piece of steak in front of you and you finally get to eat it, I’m just so excited,” she said.

“It is brilliant. As brilliant as the day I got to marry my husband. As brilliant as the first time I got to play the piano as a little girl. It’s home.

“I’m so excited. I can’t express this to you enough.

“Hopefully we can make the audience really happy and feel something that they can take away.”

Beth has done shows in Bulgaria and Romania recently and the 49-year-old will be doing just 10 dates in the UK as part of a world tour. She will be taking her enthusiasm for life to Warrington on Wednesday, October 27.

“Touring was literally like going to heaven because we got to be together – me and the crew, my husband, my production and my road manager and her family, it was like a family reunion. What a blessing," she added.

Beth, who has collaborated with the likes of Slash and Joe Bonamassa, said: "More than any record I've ever made, I'm more open to being myself on these songs.

"I've come a long way with healing, and I'm comfortable with my darknesses, weirdnesses and things that I'm ashamed of – as well as all the things that make me feel good.

“Life is meant to be a learning experience, it’s not meant to be la la land. We are here to learn and be challenged.

“I had to make some changes within myself, that was the biggest thing. I looked in the mirror and said ‘Beth, you have got to grow up and make some changes and you have to make them now'."

She has lowered her caffeine intake with coffee and has stopped smoking and swapped it for praying and writings songs again.

Beth also went into trauma therapy much deeper following her suffering with PTSD.

She continued: “Due to the pandemic, I wasn’t getting high anymore off the adrenaline of the shows, I wasn’t being distracted anymore from being constantly in the game, writing and singing.

“I had to sit and when I sat, all that stuff came back up.”

She added: "A lot of subjects are covered on War In My Mind. I've always tried to seek the truth on every record I've done. But on this album, I'm even closer to vulnerability and openness about my life, about love, addiction, my bipolar, my dad, my sister.

“I’m no longer trying to be young and competitive and all these things I’ve always felt like I’m supposed to be. On this record, something just told me: ‘Just let it be what it is’. I think I’m starting to make a little headway.”
