Another for the country fans. One top notch American rock 'n' roll band and a ridiculously talented Liverpudlian singer songwriter. Get the plaid shirt out and wear your whiskey drinking shoes.

Massy Ferguson is a bar band in the best sense — not a band relegated to bars because it will never rise higher, but a band that plays music perfectly suited to dark, crowded rooms in which there's at least a possibility of a beer glass smashing against a wall.

The songs, filled with barflies, broken hearts and doomed late-night romance, would sound pretty good anywhere, though. Singer-bassist Ethan Anderson says the sound is Americana that leans more toward rock than country, and that's a pretty good description. Think Drive-By Truckers or some combination of Son Volt and The Hold Steady. Think Springsteen's «Greetings From Asbury Park» or «Nebraska.» Those are all influences, as is 1970s Southern rock and good-time classic rock bands like Thin Lizzy.

For fans of Slobberbone, Lucero and Old 97's
Robert Vincent is an award winning singer songwriter from Liverpool. Having seen him play live at an event called Bluebird at the Bluecoat ​which brought the legendary Bluecoat Cafe from Nashville to Liverpool, Bob Harris invited Robert to record one of his Under The Apple Tree Sessions ​in his home studio and also for his Radio 2 ​show. Clearly this consolidated Bob’s admiration for this talented musician as he recently awarded Robert the prestigious and first ever Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award ​for Americana UK ​describing him as”absolutely magnetic”​. Bob said:

“ I am so impressed with Robert’s music. Strong songs laced with blues and country. He is the real deal”.

Vincent credits his influences to his upbringing where his formative years were spent listening to his father’s collection of Emmylou Harris​, Charlie Rich ​and Waylon Jennings albums and his older brothers introducing him to Pink Floyd.

These ​early influences can be detected in Vincent’s own story telling style of songwriting. He stirs a range of emotions with songs that, although often melancholic, are never maudlin, the memorable melodies leaving you feeling uplifted.

Joe Kelly will be opening with full band!
