Vincent Neil Emerson (Cancelled)

+ Ed Tattersall

The Crofters Rights

At the core of Vincent Neil Emerson’s songwriting is his frank, emotive storytelling.

Heavily influenced by fellow Texan Townes Van Zandt alongside the likes of Steve Earle, Guy Clarke and Roger Miller, the “East Texan troubadour is making some of the finest, rawest country sounds of recent years” (Uncut).

Where Emerson’s 2019 debut album ‘Fried Chicken and Evil Women’ offered lighter, more tongue-in-cheek tones, his self-titled follow up sees him lean into a darker, starker sound.

“The influence and spirit of Van Zandt permeates Emerson’s new album” (Rolling Stone) as he confronts heavier and deeply personal subject matter.

We regret that this show has been cancelled. All ticket holders are being contacted and refunds will be issued from the point of purchase.

Presented by Bristol Beacon Standing event Age: 16+

“Vincent will plant the flag of his [songwriting] forebears firmly in the consciousness of a whole new generation”
