Saturday 14th March, from 8:30pm
The Press 2340 Basement Bar, Marius Street, Tamworth
Amelia White is a leading light in America’s most musical zip code ever since, even as she’s developed a reputation in the rest of the U.S. and Europe as a first-rate songwriter. She helped define and refine the core folk-rock sound of Americana, yet her band’s energetic pulse never outshines her carefully wrought lyrics.
Ben de la Cour was raised in Brooklyn and was playing New York City dive bars with his brother a full decade before he could legally drink. At the tender age of nineteen he spent a year in Havana training with members of the Cuban national boxing team before moving to London with his brother to revive their doom metal band, Dead Man’s Root. They lived in a van and toured around Europe until 2008 when de la Cour returned to the states with a head full of incredible stories to tell.
