JACK Blackman’s famous Tuery Sessions are back for 2019 with another fantastic double bill of original acoustic music at The Cross Keys, Alcester.
The Midlands of England may not be the first place that springs to mind when considering the home of country music.
However, Derby-based Lew Thomas has made it his mission to capture the raw and honest heart of this quintessentially American genre in his songs and electrifying live performances.
His debut album ‘Walks, Talks & Fallouts’ has received huge praise, most notably from Dean Jackson of BBC Introducing.
His 2018 release, a 4-track EP ‘Laid Out On The Floor’ cemented him in the UK as one of the most electrifying young performers on the Country Music scene, securing him slots at Buckle & Boots and Black Deer Festival.
Joining him on the bill is singer/songwriter Holly Perkins whose self-penned tunes are an original blend of Folk, Roots, and Americana.
Intricate folk-style finger picking, reflective of the Ralph McTell influence and vocals walking a line somewhere between KT Tunstall, Sarah McLachlan and Canadian singer-songwriter Brandy Zdan make for a captivating combination.
A regular on the Midlands live circuit, Holly is at her best in an intimate environment.
It’s all happening this Sunday, March 10 from 6pm and entry is free.
