"A triumphant performance" - Variety

"Second albums can often be a disappointment, but this is a firecracker" - Q Magazine (on Short Sharp Shocked)

"It's a show that leaves you pondering and debating what is right and wrong, weaving political debate with masterful songwriting and delivery" - The Wee Review

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Michelle Shocked, affectionately known as the Godmother of Americana, brings her unique blend of indie, folk, blues, and politics to Crazy Coqs this February. Not one to shy away from controversy, Shocked's dynamic personality, frank storytelling, and captivating vocals promise intimate and unforgettable evenings of music, as she performs each of her first three studio albums across three separate sessions.

Short Sharp Shocked, Captain Swing, and Arkansas Traveler are arguably her most enduring works and each Live At Zédel gig will see her performing one of the albums in its entirety, with good banter and a few surprise numbers thrown into the mix.

Also known as the Mercury Trilogy on account of being released by Mercury Records, these albums have already enjoyed full outings as part of Shocked's experimental cabaret show, Truth vs Reality, at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe.
