The Chickenhead Lounge
Tuesday 30th July
feat. The Most Ugly Child, The Outwoods County Riders and The Ruby Doos
Folks we go country and a bit old timey. Opening the night are close part harmony trio ’The Ruby Doos’, expect contemporary and classic songs with a retro twist, ranging from early bluegrass through 50#s harmony swing and heartbreak ballads.
Next up your very own Chickenhead promoters and resident band The Outwoods County Riders. Armed with a sack full of new songs, the boys offer their version of countryfied Americana as only they can.
Rounding off the night we have, from the dust bowl regions of Nottingham, ‘The Most Ugly Child’. Brought together by a mutual appreciation for the revival of old time country and bluegrass music, the group centre around the partnership of singer/songwriters Daniel Wright & Stevie-Leigh Goodison. Influenced by the high and lonesome sounds of Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and George Jones, the pair have been likened to some of the great male/female country duos of yesteryear, such as Johnny and June Carter-Cash. Their original material blends seamlessly with old time country classics and listening to Daniel’s own ‘Bluebird’ you could be forgiven for thinking it was penned by the late great Hank Williams himself.
Remember; always check with the venue before travelling:
