Gig Description

The Glass Mountains – For a UK Americana-Country band, London’s The Glass Mountains are constantly being compared to Nashville’s finest. And while the band are more than happy their songs are hailed worthy of Music City, The Glass Mountains aren’t looking to Tennessee for inspiration. Since forming in late 2016, The Glass Mountains have refused to be hemmed in by popular perceptions and definitions of country music. The band, whose name refers to the London skyline and the invisible barriers between rich and poor communities, say their songs are just as likely to feature inner-city life as dirt roads and pickup trucks. In fact, if you don’t even like country music, chances are you’ll love this band.”A debut with true Nashville stylings…the record benefits from how tight the band are as live performers” – MAVERICK MAGAZINE  “Never Been To Nashville EP”The Tupelos –  channel power pop and US college rock into their own brand of Americana. Never using four minutes when will three will do. Influences from R.E.M and Sugar to Teenage Fanclub, Wilco, Son Volt  and all the usual alt-country suspects. “A debut with true Nashville Mississippi MacDonald –  is a 3 times British Blues Awards nominee, from London, England. He has been playing since he was 11 years old and has travelled extensively on the US blues trail, meeting, amongst others, Pinetop Perkins, Willie Big Eyes Smith, Otis Clay and BB King. Mississippi’s albums, “Dress For The Money” and “American Accent” reached number 1 and 3 respectively in the UK IBBA Blues Charts. American Accent was one of the top 10 IBBA albums of 2016, and was the “Blues Is Back” Album of the Year, 2017. BluesMagazine.NL: “Mississippi MacDonald has turned out an excellent, searing album that simply rocks and roars along from start to finish” WA Blues Society: “Mississippi seamlessly blends his blues with elements of R&B and country making for a unique sound. Very highly recommended”
