This unique joint-headline show sees Bedford’s own celebrated singer/songwriter Danni Nicholls share the bill with Seattle, USA based Massy Ferguson – both of whom are touring new, critically acclaimed albums.
For more than a dozen years, MASSY FERGUSON have proudly planted their boots on both sides of the country-rock divide, carving out their own brand of amplifed Americana along the way. Based in Seattle, they’ve become international torchbearers of a sound that’s distinctly American, with a touring history that spans nine different countries. On their fifth album, Great Divides, they double down on their rock & roll roots, mixing bar-band twang with raw, guitar-driven bang. Gluing those sounds together is the songwriting partnership of bass-playing frontman Ethan Anderson and guitarist Adam Monda, whose songs spin stories of small-town adolescence, big-city adulthood, and the long miles of highway that stretch between.
“If you happen to be partial to straight-ahead punch the sky southern roots rock with a side order of beer swilling choruses, then climb aboard and put the pedal down.” – Folk Radio UK
Award nominated singer songwriter DANNI NICHOLLS grew up in Bedford on a musical diet of American roots music. Touring her newly released third studio album The Melted Morning, recorded in the woods of Nashville, TN, Danni will be performing new and older songs at this rare solo hometown show.
