Irish Rockabilly sensation Imelda May returns to the States

After her show stopping performance with Jeff Beck for the Les Paul tribute on the Grammys, Imelda May has been invited back to perform with Beck, including two shows at New York's Iridium.  These exclusive shows will feature Imelda May + Jeff Beck performing songs written and performed by the legendary Les Paul - with Imelda reviving the extraordinary vocals of Mary Ford in her own unique style. The show will also feature some great rock & roll classics - all performed with Imelda's great band.  In addition to these shows, Imelda will be performing two shows at Bonnaroo, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and even more headlining performances!
Dublin-born May, who has previously shared stages with Jeff Beck as well as Van Morrison, made her major label debut in late 2009 with Love Tattoo (Verve), which shot to #1 on the Irish charts, ahead of Bruce Springsteen and Eminem. Throughout the U.K. and Ireland, she has won honors from Rising Star of 2009 and Jazz Artist of 2009 to Best Female Newcomer.  Shaking up traditional jazz with a magnificent voice that channels both Janis Joplin and Patsy Cline, her mix of jazz, rockabilly and blues yields a cool, swinging fusion both classic and oddly modern.  Her fierce, unbridled concert performances have a reputation for being impassioned events.
