Posted On 10 Jan 2019 at 7:28 pm

If Americana music is your thang, then boy you in for a real treat! Not only is there a trio of concerts happening at the Prince Albert in Brighton this month (January 2019), but there are several other hoedowns across town from February onwards!

Sam Morrow

First up is Sam Morrow Band + Special Guest Mike Ross on Monday 21st January at The Prince Albert:

Sam will be making his Brighton debut with a full band. He is incredible live! Support comes from Mike Ross.

“…Concrete And Mud, (is) a must-hear collection of songs that blend southern rock with country and funk. Morrow’s got a soulful vocal growl… If you’re a fan of Little Feat, Tony Joe White and classic Lynyrd Skynyrd, then Sam Morrow has it all for you: he’s the essence of Americana, blending together diverse styles of roots music.” – Bruce Warren/NPR Music

Andrew Combs

Next up is Andrew Combs + Charlie Whitten on Thursday 24th January at The Prince Albert:

Andrew Combs is back in Brighton again and his last show at The Verdict was a sell out.

He does something very pure and hard to find: choosing harmony and orchestral elegance over excess. He sings in the vein of Harry Nilsson, Kris Kristofferson and James Taylor, artists whose work carries an element of effortless sincerity. Combs has shared that timeless quality since his first record and ‘Canyons Of My Mind’ is an assured and accomplished continuation of that.

Wild Ponies

Completing the January trio of concerts is Wild Ponies + Danni Nicholls on Monday 28th January at The Prince Albert:

After packed out performances in Lewes, Wild Ponies are set to appear at Brighton Americana Week

Although they’re based in Nashville, Wild Ponies have always looked to Southwest Virginia — where bandmates Doug and Telisha Williams were both born and raised — for inspiration. “…(Wild Ponies) make wonderful music.” — Buddy Miller “Just absolutely lovely” —Bob Harris The AMA UK award nominee Danni Nicholls is also performing on this night.
