This is huge for me. If you've ever seen me perform and had a good time, then it will be well worth travelling to one of these shows.
The album 'Tennessee and 48th' will be out on 2nd November, so to celebrate I'm putting on three gigs in England and the musicians who played on the album in Nashville are coming over to play with me, featuring Kevin Haaland on lead guitar, Adam Kury on bass, Deena Bistodeau on fiddle and Dean Dichoso on guitar, keys and glock. Unfortunately we're unable to get the drummer Jared, but instead we have Dave Krusen who is a Rock n Roll Hall of Famer for drumming with Pearl Jam.
7th November: Rough Trade, Nottingham. All ages.
8th November: Night and Day Café, Manchester. 18+
9th November: The Monarch, Camden, London. 18+
Support is from Pete RG (from the US) and Nick Parker.
The big risk here is that it's obviously not cheap to get these people over from America, yet I'm still doing these shows as Pay What You Want. If you can afford to pay, then I'm asking you to think about how much you'd be willing to pay to see a band of musicians from the US who are just ridiculously good at what they do. If you can't afford much or anything, then of course I still want you there, but if you do happen to find some money down the back of a sofa, there'll be a bucket at the gigs for donations, and every penny is going to make a difference.
