Courtney Marie Andrews Announces PAC Gig

Courtney Marie Andrews was one of the big winners at this year’s UK Americana Awards, being crowned International Artist Of The Year.

The US singer-songwriter also saw off competition from the likes of American Aquarium, Margo Price, and Katie Pruitt to win Best International Album for Old Flowers at the virtual ceremony presented by Bob Harris OBE and featuring performances by Elvis Costello, Steve Earle and Gillian Welch.

The UK Americana Awards are run by The Americana Music Association (AMA-UK) and celebrate the very best in the genre from the UK and internationally. Now audiences will have the chance to hear Courtney perform her Grammy nominated album Old Flowers live at Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) on Thursday 17 June, 8pm, hot on the heels of the release of her very first collection of poetry.

Courtney’s PAC show follows a sold out solo performance at PAC back in 2018 and will see her return to the venue with a full band. It will come just weeks after the publication of her first collection of poetry, Old Monarch, which will be released in the UK on 13 May. The collection documents Courtney’s journey from her childhood in Arizona to leaving home, falling in love for the first time, to “the old monarch” butterfly arriving in a figurative garden.

PAC Director, Janet Farmer, said: “We would like to congratulate Courtney on her impressive, but not surprising, UK Americana Awards win, as well as the publication of her debut collection of poetry. We can’t wait to welcome Courtney back to PAC this June when we’ll get the chance to hear her perform her stunning album Old Flowers live – what an incredible opportunity. If you don’t want to miss this incredible opportunity I would urge you to buy your tickets now to avoid disappointment.”
