Martha Wainwright, at the Union Chapel

Union Chapel Martha Wainwright comes from a musical family that includes mum Kate McGarrigle and brother Rufus Wainwright, yet she writes and sings with a style completely her own. With a hugely expressive voice and an arsenal of powerful songs, Martha is a beguiling entertainer and a refreshingly different force in music.
