Doors 7.30pm, 8pm startFor years, Joshua Hedley has been making a name for himself as Nashville’s right hand man. Known as the “mayor of lower Broadway” by collaborators and comrades, Hedley is a fixture at Robert’s Western World, where he plays for tips with his band the Hedliners. The multi-talented singer-songwriter has played fiddle with Justin Townes Earle, Robert Ellis and Jonny Fritz. Now Music City’s favorite son is breaking out on his own.

As part of East Nashville’s close-knit brigade of musicians, Hedley has no shortage of support from his peers. He’s featured prominently in the 2015 documentary film Heartworn Highways Revisited, a follow up to the seminal 1976 cult classic music documentary about the 1970s Nashville songwriting community led by Guy and Susanna Clark.

Hedley’s soaring, velvet voice and jukebox-ready songs are 60s-era solid country gold. Unlike several of his peers, Hedley’s not trying to put a new spin on an old sound. Joshua Hedley’s country music is your grandfather’s country music and it’s all the better for

At the tail-end of 2017 and three studio albums into their career, the Edinburgh-based Americana band The Wynntown Marshals marked a decade together with the release of “After All These Years” – primarily a 16-track retrospective look back at some of the recorded highlights of the past ten years with the added bonus of 3 exclusive new recordings

“After All These Years” is by turns a celebratory, cerebral, nostalgic, and just downright joyous collection. It acts as a retrospective, a potted history, a memoir of a decade of making music and as the perfect nod to what the future holds in store for this most resolute and hard-working of bands.

Described by Uncut magazine as “colonising the shadowland that lies between Tom Petty and Teenage Fanclub”, the Marshals were championed from their earliest days by legendary British broadcaster ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris and our very own Ricky Ross, Iain Anderson, and Roddy Hart, culminating recently in a triumphant appearance on BBC Scotland’s Quay Sessions.

Californian alt-rock hero Chuck Prophet returns to Glasgow, for his first ever duo show with his wife and co-conspirator, Stephanie Finch this September. The tour features Chuck and Stephanie playing songs on acoustic and with keyboard with tracks from each others albums spanning over twenty years digging deep into some tunes you haven’t heard for awhile. They will be joined by friend and native New Yorker Jesse Malin whom will also be playing a full set with his keyboardist. Jesse has toured the UK for the last 20 + years too with a rich musical history. Chuck and Jesse will be closing out the night together on stage.

Chuck Prophet has been on the scene since his days with Americana pioneers Green on Red from 1984 to 1992 whom he recorded seven albums with. Chuck has gone on to have a successful solo career with over twelve albums under his belt and writing songs for the likes of Solomon Burke, Heart and Alejandro Escovedo and as a sideman with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Warren Zevon and Cake.

This will be a rare time to catch him as a duo setting.

Jesse Malin has been on the scene almost as long, revered by iconic figures from Bruce Springsteen and Joe Strummer to Joey Ramone and Jim Jarmusch, “His songs are so good they hurt my feelings,” Ryan Adams once said, and it’s little wonder considering Malin’s ability to bridge the reckless abandon of The Replacements with the sensitive introspection of Neil Young.

Two of the U.K’s finest and most prolific songwriters Kris Drever (BBC Folk Singer of The Year, Lau) and Boo Hewerdine (The Bible / Eddi Reader) tour together for the first time in over three years.

2018 finds both artists on top form, Kris having released his If Wishes Were Horses album and won
BBC Folk Awards Best Singer award, Boo releasing his critically acclaimed Swimming In Mercury album and Seven song ” Letter To My Younger Self” EP, music which is widely considered to be the best work of each artist yet.

The duo started life with a successful tour in Spring 2015, releasing the limited edition Last Man Standing EP. Connected through song now for over a decade, when Kris approached Boo about his song “Harvest Gypsies” for Kris’ debut album “Black Water”, Drever and Hewerdine have more recently written new songs for BBC Radio 2’s Radio Ballads album and show. 2018 audiences can expect to
hear many of their favourite songs from across both artists catalogues and some new songs played for the first time.

On the heels of his last two albums, both having charted on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and Heatseekers charts–Mississippi bred singer / songwriter /guitarist Jason Eady released his highly anticipated sixth album in 2017. Produced by Kevin Welch, the collection merges Eady’s distinct sensibilities into a stripped-down, roots-oriented sound that showcases the gritty elegance of his song writing.

For Eady—who names Merle Haggard, Guy Clark, and Willie Nelson among his main inspirations—instilling each song with so much graceful honesty proved to be his greatest achievement and thrill in creating the new album. “When you first get started making music, your ideas are grandiose and more about the big picture. But the longer I’ve done this, the more I’ve realized that the real joy comes from the process rather than the end goal,” he says. “Now it’s about getting better and finding more of myself with every album.”

Ian has been the lead singer and songwriter for The Felice Brothers for over a decade. The band has put out nine records and toured ceaselessly throughout the world. Born and raised in the Catskill Mountains he moved to New York when he was 18 to study art and soon after began writing songs and performing with his brothers Simone and James.

The Felice Brothers was conceived in 2006 after the recording of Iantown, a 10 song album of Ian’s first songs recorded in one night in January of 2006. In the weeks and months that followed, The Felice Brothers began playing bars, restaurants and busking street corners and subways, joined by their friends Josh Rawson on bass and Greg Farley on the fiddle. They continue to play and work as a band after 12 years of prolific song writing and performance and the creation of some 9 albums of original material.

In The Kingdom Of Dreams was the debut solo album from Ian. The album was recorded in his childhood home of Palenville NY, with his brother Simone Felice on production duties. Simone produced and co-wrote recent hit albums from The Lumineers and Bat For Lashes. On the album, Ian was joined by the original Felice Brothers line-up of James Felice on keys, Simone Felice on drums and Josh Rawson on bass.

27-year-old Edinburgh-born singer/songwriter Adam Holmes is one of the brightest rising stars on the UK roots music scene, with influences from either side of the Atlantic mixing traditional and contemporary folk with his own brand of soul and Americana.

His first album, Heirs and Graces, was produced by John Wood (producer of all Nick Drake’s albums and John Martyn’s iconic Solid Air album) and mastered by Simon Heyworth (co-producer of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells) and second album, Brighter Still, features two-time BRIT award winner Eddi Reader on backing vocals throughout.

Latest album Midnight Milk was recorded in one room in his Edinburgh flat, but came complete with full brass section, an eighteen voice choir and a widescreen folk/soul/electronica production, which was influenced by a 2016 collaboration he was involved in with Adrian Utley of Portishead, Dominic Aitchison of Mogwai and Martin Green of Lau.

Swedish sisters Baskery make their first appearance in Glasgow since 2010 and we can wait to welcome them back.
