Annie Keating

Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Annie Keating announces June-July UK Tour, coming to City Screen York on Sunday June 25th in light of her new single Trouble. 

Annie Keating announces release of new digital-only single ‘Trouble’ to coincide with her first UK tour since 2013. Trick Star, Annie’s seventh and most accomplished album to date, was released to wide acclaim in 2016.

Talent spotted by BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris, Annie has recorded two sessions for his prestigious BBC Radio 2 show and has performed at numerous leading international festivals, including Take Root, the Brooklyn Americana Festival, Glasgow Americana Festival, The Brooklyn Indie Music Fest and NXNE.  Her current album, Trick Star received wide acclaim in the UK and beyond. Bob Harris called it,“A wonderful record. Heartfelt and real”, while Folk Radio UK described the album as “disarmingly engaging.” R2 magazine regards Keating as, “a budding Americana Star”, and Acoustic magazine insists that, “Keating will enchant anyone but a deaf shoe-gazer.” Her previous album Make Believing was championed by The Telegraph as a “best country music album” pick of 2015 when they wrote that “Keating is building the reputation her talent deserves.”
Keating has played on the bill with John Hiatt, Bon Iver, Chastity Brown and other greats. This is her third UK tour – trio format this time – accompanied by London own brilliant bassist Scott Warman and Brooklyn’s finest Steve Mayone on guitar and mandolin who regularly tours with the likes of Kate Taylor, Bow Thayer and Kris Delmhorst. 
The summer tour includes three shows at this year’s Maverick Festival and double bills with Danni Nicholls, Ags Connolly, Gallery 47, Danielle Cawdell, Porchlight Smoker, Dan Webster and The Boy Who Kicked Pigs. 
For fans of Lucinda Williams, John Prine, Jason Isbell and other great alt-country songwriters, this is sun-dappled Americana at its best, sure to enchant.
