San Diego artist Sara Petite and her band were due to play Town Hall Live on Friday 19th August, but due to rising costs have had to cancel.
The good news is London band The Blue Highways will now headline on that date. Brothers Jack, Callum and Theo are the foundation of The Blue Highways. After being noticed by the likes of Bob Harris and the Americana Association as being ones to watch, they have built a reputation of being one of the best live acts on the UK music scene and could be the next big thing. While evidently influenced by the 70s sound of the Jersey shore, they have a clear link to bands like The Killers and War on Drugs to create their own unique sound.
They have already played some of the biggest Americana festivals in Europe, playing at the Tonder Festival in Denmark and the AMD UJ Showcase in the UK. Recently they caught the eye at Maverick in Suffolk. They certainly have a big future.
Support will come from York singer songwriter Rich Hardcastle, who will be accompanied by Evie Tapson. Tickets for the concert are priced at £14.00 and can be obtained from Brian on 01652 649230, the Londis store in Kirton or from www.wegottickets.com.
On Friday 9th September, The Brother Brothers from Illinois headline. The Brother Brothers are identical twins Adam and David Moss. Their natural harmonies and evocative lyricism reflect a timeless sound and the spirit of the 60s-era folk scene. They have been likened to Simon and Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers – they are that good and should not be missed. Their music has earned them an international audience with enthusiastic nods from such magazines as Billboard and Rolling Stone. The duo have played coveted performances at many of America’s leading music festivals.
Speaking of their live shows, Adam says: “I feel like there is a definite living room vibe at our concerts. Most of our experiences before performing together as a duo, was sitting with friends and creating a homey small room environment. We have continued that with The Brother Brothers.”
Support will come from acclaimed singer songwriter Hannah Read, who is a Scot but now lives in Brooklyn. She cannot be pinned down to one continent, one city, one project or one mode of expression. Tickets for this concert are priced at £15.00.
