After emotionally tearing through his sold-out Bush Hall show, Grammy-nominated Oklahoman John Fullbright brings his sepia-toned Americana back to the UK and Ireland this autumn for a run of six unmissable solo outings.
The astonishing debut album 'From The Ground Up' was nominated for the Best Americana album award at this year's Grammys, and John performed a pitch-perfect rendition of his track 'Satan & St. Paul' on Jools Holland.
12, one-of-a-kind, open-hearth confessionals, John's voice smoulders and his songs catch fire as his lyrics delve deep into that endless well of human emotion. He co-produced the album with Wes Sharon (Doobie Brothers, Gregg Allman) and plays piano, guitar, harmonica and organ.
John Fullbright plays:
Thu 26th BRISTOL, St Bonaventures
Fri 27th LONDON, Purcell Room
Thu 3rd GATESHEAD, Caedmon Hall
Fri 4th EDINBURGH, Pleasance Theatre
Sun 6th DUBLIN, Whelans
Mon 7th BELFAST, Black Box
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
