The Shires plus Canaan Smith

Sage One

A number of restricted view tickets have just been released – available from 0191 443 4661.

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

The duo of Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes became were one of the hits at SummerTyne 2015, going down a storm in Sage One so we are 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.

Their eagerly awaited new album My Universe is released 7 October. | Facebook | Twitter
