Laura Marling

Intense, radiantly lovely young English neofolksinger Laura Marling emerged from the celebrated London scene that gave us Mumford & Sons and Noah and the Whale, and released her first album just days after her 18th birthday. Now at the still-tender age of 23, Marling celebrates her newly released, lauded fourth LP, Once I Was an Eagle. The singer recently moved to Los Angeles from London, and as such, the album is full of the hope and optimism that accompany such a life-altering event. These gigs should be a fitting occasion for Marling to celebrate both her new beginnings and her new album.
