This show is double bill with the Nashville based Americana singer songwriter Amelia White, whose new album "Rhythm of the Rain" will be released prior to this show. 2016 was a good year for Amelia in the UK, where her last full-length release, Home Sweet Hotel, landed some killer reviews, like a top country pick in the Telegraph. She played Maverick, Summertyne, and Platform festivals, along with a month of club dates. While touring, White stayed with a promoter in York, and reading the news from the US began to write, the songs that would make up Rain. That ocean of separation gave her the necessary distance to comment on the shake-up back home without finger pointing, something that White has always done. No judgement, just sharp observations that lead to emotions. Music City Roots host and journalist Craig Havighurst wrote that her songs each have some fascinating crystalline shape that invites close attention and touch. Rhythm of the Rain is a collection of tunes touched by White's tenure in the UK, as an offering of thanks for feeling embraced just when she needed it.

Also on the bill is Danni Nicholls; with an Americana Association UK 'album of the year' award nomination for 'Mockingbird Lane', a 28 date UK tour supporting the legendary Shakin' Stevens, supporting Lucinda Williams, a new live album released in association with Vintage TV and invites to play prestigious festivals such as Cambridge Folk, Tønder, Denmark and AmericanaFest, Nashville 2017 is shaping up to be a very good year for Danni Nicholls.
