The Felice Brothers have earned themselves comparisons to Neil Young, Bob Dylan and James Brown thanks to their distinct brand of song-writing and lawless sound.
A close-knit band of two brother and two friends the band have announced they will play Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) on Tuesday 23 June, 8pm, as part of their forthcoming European and US tour.
PAC director Janet Farmer said: “With their unique brand of American folk rock The Felice Brothers add yet another dimension to our vibrant, multi-faceted programme of live events for summer 2020 – and there is much more to come! I was privileged to see them at Luck Reunion, held at Willie Nelson’s ranch, and can highly recommend them. Expect a raucous and energetic performance that will be something to truly treasure. Tickets for this will sell fast so I would encourage you to get yours soon or risk miss out on what will be a sublime show.”
Ian and James Felice grew up in the Hudson valley of upstate New York.
Self-taught musicians, inspired as much by Hart Crane and Whitman as by Woody Guthrie and Chuck Berry, they began in 2006 by playing subway platforms and sidewalks in NYC.
They have gone on to release nine albums of original songs and to tour extensively throughout the world.
Following the release of Life in the Dark, The Felice Brothers served as the backing band for Conor Oberst’s 2017 release Salutations and subsequent tour.
