I'm With Her
(Sara Watkins, Aoife O'Donovan and Sarah Jarosz)

Three of the brightest talents in contemporary American music join forces for a unique and highly anticipated UK tour.Playing together for the first time, adding their collective talent to each others memorable material, this promises to be a milestone in contemporary American roots music.
 

Sara Watkins was a founder member of Nickel Creek, probably the most acclaimed progressive bluegrass band ever. Her solo career, and collaborations with the likes of Fiona Apple and Jackson Browne, has attracted comments like

“Watkins’ time in the spotlight is a triumph with her agile playing and the kind of voice that gives your goose bumps the shivers.” BBC.
 

Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sarah Jarosz has enthralled and charmed many with the maturity of her songs, the purity of her vocals, and her ability to effortlessly switch between guitar, banjo and mandolin as the material dictates. Her last recording, Build Me Up From Bones was widely regarded as a masterpiece – an astonishingly accomplished work for a 23 year old.
 

Stunningly versatile and immensely talented, Aoife O'Donovan came to prominence as the lead singer and songwriter of the highly acclaimed Crooked Still. Her first solo release, Fossils, and her solo performances have had critics drooling

“She is surely the next Americana celebrity” – Robin Deneslow -The Guardian.

Kevin Montgomery

With a father who was Buddy Holly's songwriter partner, and a mother who sang backup for Elvis Presley, Kevin Montgomery's heredity credentials are impeccable. Added to that is the undisputed fact that he's a fabulous singer and songwriter in his own right, influenced as much by the Southern Californians like Jackson Browne and David Crosby as the rootsy Americana of Nashville /Texas background.

As his many previous appearances in Bristol have shown, he's never happier than when he's entertaining old friends and new fans in one of his favourite cities.

Chuck Prophet and Mission  Express

Chuck Prophet's previous appearances in Bristol have been considered by many of those present to be among the most perfect shows they're likely to see. A consummate performer, superb songwriter, virtuoso guitarist and leader of Mission Express, one of the tightest bands imaginable, from his earliest days as a member of the legendary Green on Red through a series of albums that incrementally raised the stake in brilliance, Chuck Prophet is the living embodiment of modern rock and roll music.


It's an honour and a pleasure to be able to welcome him back.

Slaid Cleaves

His official biography reads “Grew up in Maine. Lives in Texas. Writes songs. Travels around. Tries to be good.” Just like his songs, it speaks volumes with a few well-chosen words but everyone knows that there's a lot more to Slaid Cleaves than that. His modesty disguises an incredible songwriting talent, which mixes joy and despair, love and loss in equal measures. Songs such as Broke Down and Breakfast in Hell have become modern American classics and his intense, emotionally charged and frequently funny live shows are legendary.

Slaid Cleaves is one of the great contemporary American singer songwriters, and it's a pleasure to be able to welcome him back.

Jace Everett

Having one of your songs as the title theme for a hit TV show can be a blessing and a curse, as Jace Everett found out when Bad Things was featured in the smash series True Blood. He became an overnight sensation with a worldwide bestseller and the fact that he's a red hot country rocker with an innate ability to conjure up classic songs at the drop of a hat tends to be overlooked. Here with his crack band, this is roots rock at its finest.

 Angaleena Presley

 
Angaleena Presley's background includes being a coal miner’s daughter, a native of Beauty, Kentucky, a direct descendent of the original feuding McCoys, a one-time single mother, a graduate of both the school of hard knocks and college and a former cashier at Wall-Mart. If that sounds like an entry in the book of Country clichés, it's also worth pointing out that she's a member of the platinum selling Pistol Annies, and that her solo debut record, American Middle Class, is setting the world ablaze with its fiercely uncompromising descriptions of life as it is rather than as it should be.

Frequently referred to as the heiress to Dottie West or Loretta Lynne, the signs are that it won't be too long before she's regarded as their equal. Pure Country class.
Early booking very strongly advised.
 

“Ambitious, riveting narrative. Adventurous country and roots-rock flavoured sonic ideas.” The Wall Street Journal
 

“Presley sings with a good mix of emotion and subtlety (especially on the affecting Better Off Red) on a powerful and highly impressive album.” Daily Telegraph.
