Conference launch

Conference launch

A cracking evening at Night Tales in Hackney, as the UK Americana Music Association kicked off their annual Conference with a superb series of performances by former winners of the Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award, all backed by the Northern Cowboys (Mark Lewis and Tom Dibb) supplemented by the excellent CJ Hillman on pedal steel and guitar.

Lauren Housley, Robert Vincent, Demi Marriner, The Wandering Hearts and Robbie Cavanagh delivered an exquisite range of country, folk, soul and blues with a touch of jazz courtesy of a classy serving of additional sax and trumpet.

My thanks Stevie Smith and all the team for organising three days of business, debate, advice and gigs. See you at the Awards ceremony on Thursday!
