Fri 7th September, 20188:00 pm - 10:30 pm (Doors: 7:30pm)
The Cafe is open this evening, last orders at 6.30pm
MY DARLING CLEMENTINE return with their incredible new album Still Testifying, described by Uncut magazine as ‘where gospel, country and southern soul happily collide… terrific.’
Since Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish shook up the world of country and Americana with their much lauded 2013 debut How Do You Plead?, they have continued to push the boundaries of country music. With Still Testifying they have adopted a more soulful and gospel approach and the album, like its predecessors, has been greatly hailed in both Europe and America.
After three albums, hundreds of shows and some ingenious musical collaborations (Texan author and musician Kinky Friedman, The Brodsky Quartet, iconic singer and songwriter Graham Parker plus their unique song/story show and audio book with crime writer Mark Billingham), My Darling Clementine have won numerous awards and gained an ever-growing, passionate fan base.
Wry, witty, sharp, funny, and at times incredibly poignant, the duo always run their audiences through the full gamut of emotions.
Don’t miss this opportunity to discover why, and to experience their match-made-in-heaven harmonies and songwriting of the very highest order
*For this evening they will be joined by Al Gare (double bass) & Iain Sloan (Guitar/pedal steel)
