Does anyone out there like 'Alt Country'?

Recommended Posts

Just wondered if there were any other alt country fans out there? And if there are any good country nights in Shef, either DJ's or live bands???

 

like Gram Parsons, Brad paisley,John Hiatt and others:also like western swing

Thanks. I've seen some great stuff at the grapes under your banner too. Didn't you put on Otis Gibbs?

 

Yeah, had Otis on a few times. Hopefully again later this year. Details for Dolly Varden on Feb 19th are also now up on the website:

He's great, I hope you manage to land him again. Dolly Varden's The Panic Bell did nothing for me but good luck with the gig and no doubt I'll be turning up to more of your events in the future.

Good news. Rod and Amanda were fantastic when they played The Grapes last year (or was it the year before?), absolutely mesmerising stuff.

They were here in June 2009 and October 2008.

 

Amanda's currently giving her last record away for free download too here for anybody interested:

Wow, Ryan Adams at the boardwalk, he is the man in terms of Alt Country/Americana but quite easily slips in and out of other genres, Bluegrass Rock etc Also checkout his buddies Jesse Malin & Gillian Welch. Not sure about any regular nights out in Sheffield for Alt Country, might have to wait for Tramlines...
