At Acoustic Roots, we have brought you Brooks Williams twice...we brought you Boo Hewerdine earlier this year...and you've asked for them back. We therefore bring you them together in the form of State Of The Union! Boo Hewerdine (UK) and Brooks Williams (USA) embark on their first UK tour in three-years. The duo formed in 2012, released two critically acclaimed albums, 'State of the Union' and 'Snake Oil'. Their subsequent 60-date tour included an appearance on The Andrew Marr Show (BBC 1), plus four-star reviews in both Q and R2. With brief stops in Ireland and Portugal, their six-week 2017 tour traverses the UK throughout September and October. For the tour they've recorded a new album, 'The Saltwell Sessions', only available at the shows of this tour. Boo and Brooks have an undeniable chemistry. Their combined musicality is something to behold. Whether covering the Pet Shop Boys or Johnny Cash, or performing one of their own co-written songs, this "hands across the water" show is not to be missed. Catch 'em while you can The evening will be opened by rising North West star Iona Lane. Despite only being 18 years old, she has just released her third EP, 'Pockets' to critical accliam.
