THERE’S a rare chance to see Blackpool’s Rae Morris on home ground when she appears at the Art Deco Cafe in Stanley Park on Sunday afternoon.

Since her Leeds and Reading Festival debuts Rae has been kept busy with a hectic schedule of gigs around the country, which have included supporting Michael Kiwanuka at the Bush Hall venue in London and playing shows in Oxford, York, Bath and Llanberis, as well as a support slot for Sarah Gillespie at The Mad Ferret in Preston.

Last weekend was particularly busy one with a show on Thursday evening at the St Pancras Old Church in London with JP Cooper followed on Saturday with a performance at the Ley Lines Festival in Oxford alongside emerging stars Jamie Woon, Toddla T and The Big Pink.

On Sunday, at 1pm Rae returns home playing some of her new songs at the Art Deco Cafe. She will be performing with Josh and Tom from The Deadbeats, who will be playing an acoustic set.

In between travelling up and down the country she has found time to take part in a video shoot for a website dedicated to promoting new and emerging artists, such as Bombay Bicycle Club and Florence and the Machine, called WatchListenTell.

She has already had over 47,000 views of her singing Day One which was filmed in the kitchen at Rae’s Marton home.
