Emily Barker, Holly Macve and Jade Bird

Part of River Town 2018

As part of River Town we present a unique evening with three of the world’s most exciting, emerging female artists – each forging a new path in Americana.

Emily Barker’s seamless mix of soul, blues, country and folk saw her named UK Artist of the Year at the 2018 UK Americana Awards. Holly Macve writes country music that has “a timeless feel” (Guardian), performed with a “voice that is just jaw-dropping” (Line of Best Fit). Finally, London-born Jade Bird has an authentic style and “crystalline soprano” (Pitchfork) that is “raw and robust” (Rolling Stage).

This is a seated show. Taking place at St. George’s Bristol, Great George St, Bristol BS1 5RR
