Tracy Vandal with concerts in Coimbra and Covilhã

Tracy Vandal, the Scottish artist who began her career in the United Kingdom and settled in Coimbra in 2007, has concerts scheduled for the 24th of February at Salão Brazil, in Coimbra and on the 2nd of March at the Teatro Municipal de Covilhã.

In Coimbra, she became the lead singer of Tiguana Bibles, led by her partner Victor Torpedo. After contributing her voice to Jigsaw for a few years, Tracy established a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist John Mercy, resulting in the album “Midnight Presents”, recorded at Blue House and released by Lux Records in 2022.

Featured in BLITZ’s list of the 50 best Portuguese albums of 2022, this album is an amalgamation of memories and musical influences, inspired both by the songs that shaped their lives and by artists such as Tom Waits, Johnny Cash and Nick Cave, among others. Now, Tracy Vandal & John Mercy reinterpret these songs with their own stamp, aspiring to inspire future generations of songwriters and singers. The repertoire selection includes songs originally performed by men, offering a different perspective but staying true to the spectrum of darker American folk songs. They are stories of absence, injustice, redemption and, inevitably, love loss.

On stage, the duo is accompanied by a lineup of notable musicians: Pedro Antunes on bass (BunnyRanch, Wipeout Beat, Subway Riders, Psicotronics, John Mercy & The Dead Beats), Sérgio Costa on keys (Belle Chase Hotel, Animals, Mancines, The Millions) and Luís Formiga on drums (Animais, Mancines, John Mercy & The Dead Beats).

Tickets for both concerts are available for purchase at BOL (Salão Brazil) and Ticketline (TMC).

Always confirm with the concert hall or promoter the conditions of access, confirmation of the date or time, ticket place of sale, price, and availability.
