This is one I’ve been waiting for some. I’ve long enjoyed listening to Crooked Still but always appear to miss them on their travels, but I now have my ticket and will be there, with what potentially could be a big crowd.
Crooked Still are a five piece band who hail from Boston Massachusetts and play Americana music for the past, present and future and a cross between nu-folk and bluegrass and they are on a short UK tour to promote their new CD Some Strange Country
For their fourth effort, Crooked Still were snowed into the studio with Grammy award winning producer and engineer Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss and Union Station, Tim O’Brien, Dolly Parton) in Charlottesville, Virginia. The isolation left little room for distraction and fuelled more ambitious collaboration – quasi-orchestral string arrangements, and unique vocal distortion techniques. Special guest vocalists include Ricky Skaggs, Tim O’Brien, Sarah Jarosz, and Annalisa Tornfelt.
So this looks like it could be another great night in Bedford for
East West Promotions.
