SummerTyne Americana Festival 2017

The Shires plus Catherine McGrath and Sarah Darling

Sage One

Restricted view tickets available from Ticket Office

The groundswell of interest in country music in the UK is now unstoppable and one of the acts to make country cooler than ever on this side of the Atlantic aren’t from Tennessee or Texas, they’re from Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

The duo of Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes aren’t unknown to SummerTyne and Sage audiences and we’re delighted to welcome them back. These young singer-songwriters share a love of the classical ‘Nashville’ sound. Powered by Crissie’s powerful but subtle and supple vocals and Ben’s perfectly complementary tones and acoustic guitar, The Shires have literally found a piece of country to call their own. They love American music, but they are proudly British and intensely keen to add some real indigenous flavour to the pot. | Facebook | Twitter

Sarah Darling is sure to take you on a whimsical ride through songs about stars, and when cowboys used to ride away into the West. She calls her sound “Dream Country”. Darling has released several albums with two number 1 videos on CMT and GAC, and her biggest hit Home to Me, led to performances opening for artists like Carrie Underwood and Kacey Musgraves. | Facebook | Twitter
