Green Chilli Roots are playing host to artists from Australia and US at the Winning Post in York on Tuesday 3rd July.
In their first ‘double header’ gig the promoters have invited back to the city Lachlan Bryan & the Wildes who played the Pig and Pastry last year to rapturous acclaim and Amelia White who has previously similarly impressed audiences at the Winning Post.
Melbourne based Bryan writes on a wide range of subjects and the audience can expect songs about a cemetery, a trailer-trash midlife crisis, a forty-year romance, a promiscuous girlfriend, a city the band likes, a pre-apocalyptic cautionary tale and a missing person’s report, just to name a few.
Although their music is rooted in country it has also been described as drawing as heavily upon the influence of Leonard Cohen and Billy Bragg as it does Willie Nelson and Townes Van Zandt.
Hailing from Nashville, what separates Amelia White from most other songwriters in the Americana genre is her details. Like a short story writer steeped in the gothic humidity of the backroads, White illuminates the ordinary.
Joe Grint of Green Chilli Roots said ‘We are so pleased to be able to bring Lachlan’s trio and Amelia back to York in what will be a night of superb and varied music’
Doors open at 8pm on Tuesday 3rd July at the Winning Post on Bishopthorpe Road.
Advance tickets for the gig, which the promoters are expecting to be in high demand, are available now from http://yorkshireticketshop.co/green-chilli-roots.html
