Berlin-based singer songwriter Emaline Delapaix will be performing her first ever Derbyshire concert at the intimate vegetarian cafe and bistro Thyme To Eat in Chesterfield on April 20, from 7pm.
The performance forms part of her UK tour, accompanied by electric/lapsteel guitarist Lukas Creswell-Rost.
Emaline writes songs for piano, acoustic guitar and Celtic harp influenced by Kate Bush, Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell as well as modern folk music, especially from Scandinavia.
Her lyrics explore the human condition and thought provoking topics such as depression, animal rights, feminism and sexuality as well as love, nature and adventure out on the open road.
Tickets for the concert are £15, including a selection of vegetarian tapas or vegan and gluten free curry and can be purchased at http://www.thymetoeatchesterfield.co.uk/gigs .
As Emaline is an animal lover and vegan, five per cent of her CD sales from that evening will go towards a local animal shelter yet to be decided on.
