SummerTyne Americana Festival 2016

Imelda May plus support Jess & the Bandits

Sage One

The rise and rise of Ireland’s reigning musical queen, the truly unique Imelda May has been unstoppable since the release of her first studio album Love Tattoo in the UK & Ireland in 2009, the Number 1 Mayhem followed in 2012 and Tribal in 2014! Imelda and the band have been touring non-stop around the world since 2008, only recently slowing down to write and record before hitting the road again.

Born in The Liberties, Dublin, Imelda is the youngest of five siblings and was the most susceptible to the various influences from her older brothers and sisters – there was folk, the obligatory chart pop, and then there was Elvis and by the age of nine Imelda had fallen in love with rockabilly and the blues.

“A whipcracker of a voice … Songs describing rumpuses, stalkers and sexual predators are delivered with oodles of energy….dangerously rocking” THE GUARDIAN

Plus Support Jess & the Bandits

Big voiced Texan Jess Clemmons and her five piece band were one of the most talked about acts at SummerTyne 2015 after delivering 2 brilliant sets.

The Bandits met during a 2012 tour while playing with The Overtones and instantly bonded over their mutual love of country music and as they began to play together more and more, their chemistry was clearly flawless.
