We're delighted to welcome American national treasure and serious indie-folk-weirdo-country royally Simon Joyner to York for the first time in May. One of only four UK shows.
'Pound for pound Simon Joyner is my favorite lyricist of all time. He has shades of all the greats (Van Zandt, Cohen, Dylan) but exists in a space all his own ... He truly is an American songwriting treasure. It is my hope that more people will discover his music and share in the unique joy that it brings.'
Three of our first four shows in 2017 introduce a new international artist to the York music scene. This is what we were put on the planet to do and we're very proud to do it.
If you don't like something about Nashville country-garage types Promised Land Sound (Third Man Records/Paradise Of Bachelors), amazing Brooklyn indie band Big Thief (Saddle Creek) or folky New Zealand singer-songwriter Nadia Reid, well basically you're on the wrong page.
Get involved folks, don't think any of these artists will be back here in a hurry.
