Allison Russell brings her first ever solo album, Outside Child, to Celtic Connections 2022. Russell is a poet, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist - a mixed-heritage, queer, black woman. She is also the a co-founder and pivotal voice of bands Our Native Daughters and Birds of Chicago. This new album unpacks her youth in searing detail, and is ultimately "about resilience, survival, transcendence, the redemptive power of art, community, connection, and chosen family.”

Montreal born Russell imbues her music with the colours of her city - the light, the landscape, the language - but also the trauma that she suffered there.  Russell now speaks from a place of healing, of motherhood, of partnership - and from a new home made in Nashville.  

“The songs themselves ––though ironhard in their concerns–– are exultant: exercising haunted dream-like clean bedsheets snapped and hung out into broad daylight, and with the romantic poet’s lust for living and audacity of endurance.” - poet and songwriter Joe Henry.
