Oldham-born Elson played acoustic guitar and was backed by a five-piece band during her hour-long set. Prior rumours of an appearance by her husband were proved false, although White produced and plays drums on Elson's album, out on May 25.
It was only Elson's fourth solo appearance, though Elson herself is far from inexperienced, having contributed vocals to Robert Plant's 'Dreamland' album in 2003 and duetted with Cat Power in 2006 on a cover of Serge Gainsbourg's 'I Love You (Me Neither)'.
'The Ghost That Walks' promises to be a collection of soulful country ballads, befitting a woman who lives in Nashville, Tenn. with a husband who is a veritable scholar of American music.
Along with songs from her album, Elson played a cover of the Jackson C. Frank song 'Milk and Honey', before closing with the title track from her album, her debut single.
