Thea Gilmore releases "Small World Turning" on May 17 - her first new collection of songs since 2017's "The Counterweight" which was her 3rd successive top 40 album. She also embarks on a UK tour with her band and support from Matt Owens (Noah And The Whale).

An artist of enduring international acclaim (Bruce Springsteen regularly names her as a favourite) and a justly revered lyricist, Gilmore's musical settings have taken many ingenious detours in recent years. "Small World Turning" nails it's colours to a very different wall from the get-go. Acoustic guitars are back to the fore, and a quintessentially rootsy array of instruments frame them - fiddles, whistles, mandolins, tenor banjos are all in abundance. "Small World Turning" is an album with an unashamed folk flavor and features contributions from Cara Dillon, Seth Lakeman, Sam Lakeman, Katriona Gilmore, Jamie Roberts and BBC Radio 2's Young Folk Award winner 2013 Ciaran Algar.

A gifted and exceptional artist at the peak of her powers, Thea Gilmore has delivered a vibrant and deeply resonant album, rooted in folk music but completely transcending any genre related limitations. 

"Unarguably one of the finest singer-songwriters of her generation" - Sunday Times Culture
"The best wordsmith of her generation" - The Independent
