Chan Marshall aka Cat Power has announced that she will play a second show at Glasgow's Triptych festival this month.

Although billed as a 'solo' show, Marshall will be accompanied by Judah Bauer of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion fame on both Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th April.

Bauer is a member of the new Cat Power band, Dirty Delta Blues, which also features rock luminaries such as Jim White from the Dirty Three, Greg Foreman from Delta 72 and Eric Papparozzi, who will appear on the rest of the UK/European shows.

Since releasing "The Greatest" to great acclaim last year, Marshall, Uncut's Woman of 2006 has also seen herself nominated for a BRIT Award.

She is currently working on a follow-up to her famed covers album "The Covers Record," expected to be ready later this year.

Glasgow Ferry, Triptych Festival (April 25)
