The real Sandi Thom has stepped forward, and surely no one has ever been quite so happy to get the blues. On May 17th, a new Sandi emerges with ‘Merchants and Thieves,’ an album that brilliantly reflects how she’s opened up a whole new channel for her creativity. Retaining her innate feeling for a powerful melody and a trenchant lyric, the record adds the new blues sensibility that visitors to her famously powerful gigs have sensed for themselves in recent months. At Celtic Connections in Glasgow in January, for instance, devotees and newcomers watched in shared amazement as Sandi took lead guitar for the first time on the album’s excellent, early Fleetwood Mac-inspired ‘Gold Dust’ and then led the band through Led Zeppelin’s ‘When The Levee Breaks.’ IRISH tour dates 2010: May 17th-Whelans- Dublin/ May 20th – Spring & Airbrake – Belfast.
