2017 Nashville Meets London Music Festival

Canary Wharf London Announces Dates for the 2017 Nashville Meets London Music Festival 
Scheduled for July 22-23 in Canada Square Park

(Nashville, Tenn. – Dec. 12, 2016) London-based company, Canary Wharf Management, Ltd has announced the dates for the 2017 Nashville Meets London Music Festival.  Scheduled for July 22-23, the two day event will bring together performers that represent Nashville and the UK with audiences from London and beyond to experience performances by established artists and exciting new talent.

This year’s lineup, which is currently being set, will be released in the coming months.  For more information or to submit an act for booking consideration, please contact: Matt Watkins (US) at mwatkins@aristomedia.com.
The inaugural Nashville Meets London festival, which took place in August 2016, drew thousands of festivalgoers to the Canary Wharf estate that were actively engaged in the show – singing, dancing and many baring Country-lifestyle attire. The event drew an impressive number of people and left an overwhelmingly positive response among UK-based Country music fans and locals. 
The site of the annual festival, Canada Square Park, is located in the heart of Canary Wharf and is surrounded by award-winning gardens and over 300 shops, bars and restaurants.

Nashville Meets London is co-produced by Canary Wharf Arts + Events, Peter Conway Management and Nashville-based agency, The AristoMedia Group.  Baylen Leonard, BBC Radio 2 Country DJ, is the artistic program consultant.
About Canary Wharf: Canary Wharf Group plc has overseen the largest urban regeneration project ever undertaken in Europe, designing and building more than 16m sq ft of iconic London real estate, which now houses local and international companies and renowned retailers. 
The Canary Wharf Estate is a major retail destination comprising five shopping malls, including the award-winning Crossrail Place, housing one of London’s most stunning roof gardens.  It also has world-class, year-round arts and events programme offering over 100 diverse and culturally inspiring events performed throughout the Estate.

RANDY HOUSER TAPPED FOR MAJOR COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVALS IN 2017

RANDY HOUSER TAPPED FOR MAJOR COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVALS IN 2017

Inspired by life on the road, Houser digs deep into his songwriting roots

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A lifelong road warrior widely acclaimed for his powerful “cannon of a voice” (Green Bay Press-Gazette), Randy Houser has logged thousands of miles - and played to millions of fans – during the past two years touring as direct support for heavyweights Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley in addition to headlining many of his own shows. His dynamic live show, having grown from back-alley dive bars to stadiums, has been called “pure brimstone” (Tampa Bay Times) with soulful performances that showcase “one of the more powerful voices in country music” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), prompting several major country music festivals to tap Houser for a spot on their coveted 2017 lineups.

Houser, whose “Song Number 7” landed on New York Times critic Jon Caramanica’s all-genre list of The Best Songs of 2016, will kick off the New Year with a performance at Bryan’s wildly popular Crash My Playa festival in Cancun, Mexico, with additional 2017 dates as follows and more to be announced:
 

Thursday, Jan. 19 – Crash My Playa – Cancun, Mexico
Friday, Feb. 3 – WIL Presents Hot Country Nights at Ballpark Village – St. Louis, Mo.
Saturday, Feb. 4 – Rodeo Austin Gala – Austin, Texas
Saturday, March 4 – WIRK Rib Round Up – West Palm Beach, Fla.
Monday, March 6 – Jeffrey Steele and Friends – Franklin, Tenn.
Friday, April 28 – Stagecoach Music Festival – Indio, Calif.
Thursday, June 15 – Country Jam USA – Loma, Colo.
Friday, June 16 – Headwaters Country Jam – Cardwell, Mont.
Sunday, June 18 – Country Summer – Santa Rosa, Calif.
Saturday, June 24 – Country Fest – North Lawrence, Ohio
Friday, Aug. 18 – The Willamette Country Music Festival – Brownsville, Ore.
Saturday, Aug. 19 – Country Thunder Calgary – Calgary, AB, Canada


A natural-born troubadour, Houser has been feeling more musically energized than ever by his time on the road, admitting that while it’s early still to be thinking about a new album to follow 2016’s Fired Up, he is already back in songwriting mode crafting new songs and drawing from a deep well of musical inspiration that taps into everything from his Mississippi gospel and blues roots to arena-rockers to more sentimental ballads inspired by his recent marriage to wife Tatiana Houser.

“We've been on the road for about three years straight, so I’m really looking forward to having the opportunity to write and focus on music again before we head back out in 2017," Houser shared.

Rhiannon Giddens kündigt ihr zweites Solo-Album an // Ende März spielt sie in Hamburg und Köln


Rhiannon Giddens, die als Mitglied der Carolina Chocolate Drops bereits einen Grammy gewann, legt nun nach ihrem viel gelobtem Solo-Debüt "Tomorrow Is My Turn" ein neues Album vor. Kritikerstimmen lasen sich zur vorigen Veröffentlicung u.a. folgendermaßen:
"ihre Stimme ist ein fortwährendes soulvolles Wunder" (The New York Times)
Giddens "hinterlässt ihre eigene, atemberaubende Handschrift in Songs von Patsy Cline, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Nina Simone und anderen" (NPR)
"Solo-Debüt von phänomenaler stimmlicher Kraft, mühelos zwischen Gospelrufen, zarten Folksongs und ergreifenden Country-Balladen springend" (The Guardian)
Nun will sich das kommende Werk, das am 24. Februar erscheint und "Freedom Highway" heißen wird, an die Erfolge des Vorgänger-Albums musikalisch wie qualitativ anschließen. Der gleichnamige Titelsong (unten anzuhören), ist das politisch aufgeladene und Gospel-inspirierte Stück der Staple Singers, das aus der Zeit der Bürgerrechtsbewegung stammt und von den 50-Mile-Walks von Selma nach Montgomery (Alabama) inspiriert ist.
Der Song gibt dem Album seinen Namen, das ansonsten vornehmlich neue Stücke enthält, die Giddens schrieb oder mitschrieb, während sie und ihre Band mit "Tomorrow Is My Turn" tourten. Hinzu kommt ein Traditional und neben "Freedom Highway" ein weiterer aus der Ära der Bürgerrechtsbewegung, "Birmingham Sunday"
Am Tag nach der US-Wahl schrieb Giddens über den Titeltrack übrigens folgendes: "Ich bin eine Tochter des Südens; der weißen Arbeiterklasse, der schwarzen Arbeiterklasse; der Demokraten und der Republikaner; der Homo- und Heterosexuellen. Und eines kann ich euch sagen: wir haben weit mehr gemeinsam, als uns teilt. Wir dürfen nicht zulassen, dass der Hass uns spaltet; dass Unwissen uns schmälert; dass jene, die von Gier getrieben sind, uns unser Land wegnehmen. They can't take U.S. from US – es sei denn, wir lassen sie. Ich habe dies mit Bhi Bhiman aufgenommen, einem durch und durch amerikanischen Singer-Songwriter aus St. Louis, dessen Eltern aus Sri Lanka stammen. Amerikas Stärke sind seine Menschen, egal, ob sie vor 4.000, 400 oder 40 Jahren kamen, und wir dürfen niemanden zurücklassen. Lasst uns gemeinsam den Freedom Highway beschreiten. Geschrieben 1965 von Pops Staples."
Hört hier "Freedom Highway" - eine Kollaboration von Giddens mit dem Musiker Bhi Bhiman aus St. Louis - und zugleich eine Neuinterpretation des Songs der Staple Singers aus dem Jahr 1965:
