Celtic Connections Presents: Hurray for the Riff Raff and Roseanne Reid
Giving voice to her fellow misfits and rejects from mainstream US culture, Hurray For The Riff Raff is the eponymous manifesto of Alynda Segarra, a young Bronx-born singer/songwriter of Puerto Rican descent, now based in New Orleans. Originally drawn to music by the riot grrrl movement, she deploys diverse Americana styles to frame forthright contemporary lyrics, and is soon to release her third album. “Makes the old music speak to new concerns.” (Pitchfork)
A previous BBC Young Folk Award nominee, Edinburgh’s Roseanne Reid has twice won a scholarship to Steve Earle’s annual New York songwriting camp, and is fast gaining attention with her arresting country/folk balladry.
