Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell new Album!!
Added 2015-03-29 16:50:14

Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell’s new album, The Traveling Kind, will be released May 11 on Nonesuch Records. They've been good enough to post us an advanced copy and it is wonderful! Can't wait for 13 August now!!

The Traveling Kind follows the longtime friends’ first duet album, 2013’s Old Yellow Moon, which won Best Americana Album at the 56th annual Grammy Awards as well as two awards at the 2013 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards Show, for Album of the Year and Duo/Group of the Year.  Produced by Grammy Award winner Joe Henry (Billy Bragg, Elvis Costello, Aimee Mann), The Traveling Kind comprises 11 duet tracks, including six new songs written by Harris and Crowell with co-writing by Mary Carr, Cory Chisel, Will Jennings, and Larry Klein.  Also featured are new renditions of previous Crowell cuts including ‘No Memories Hanging Around’ as well as new interpretations of Lucinda Williams’ ‘I Just Wanted to See You So Bad’ and Amy Allison’s ‘Her Hair Was Red’.

Of the project, Harris comments, “In the words of Willie Nelson, ‘The life I love is making music with my friends,’ and there’s no better friend for me to make music with than Rodney.  I can’t wait to get out there on the road with him and play the songs from this new record.”  Crowell adds, “Emmy and I co-wrote six of the eleven songs on The Traveling Kind, which was recorded in a six-day span with our Glory Band, Steuart Smith and Billy Payne.  Joe Henry was at the helm as producer and Justin Neibank did the recording.  The experience was pretty much akin to falling off a log.” More...

Scottish singer, songwriter and ex-Marillion frontman FISH has announced a run of UK headline shows in December where he will play Marillion’s 1985 chart-topping album 'Misplaced Childhood' in full for the very last time, ahead of releasing his final-ever album next year.

The ‘Farewell To Childhood’ tour starts in Sweden in June and takes in a huge array of shows and festivals across Europe and even further afield, with a very special performance in Marrakech planned, before coming to the UK for two festivals – our very own Cropredy Festival on 14 August and the inaugural Midstock in Fish’s hometown of Dalkeith on 12 September.

These two shows will be the only chance to catch Fish playing outdoor festivals in the UK, ahead of the more intimate theatrical shows in December. More...
