Dou­ble bill of singer-song­writ­ers to charm au­di­ence

Evening Express (City Final) - - Events -

AL­MOST Blue are ex­cited to be bring­ing back Jeremy Pin­nell to Aberdeen’s Blue Lamp on Sun­day on the back of his bril­liant new al­bum Ties of Blood and Af­fec­tion.

The softly-spo­ken Ken­tuck­ian was born in an area that is equal parts South­ern hos­pi­tal­ity, North­ern at­ti­tude and Mid­west­ern charm. Com­ing from hum­ble be­gin­nings singing in church and learn­ing gui­tar from his dad, his craft quickly made heads turn and rooms fall silent. He left home at 18 to ven­ture into the un­known with only his mu­sic and soon found him­self sur­rounded by the demons of the world he used to try and sing away. The sto­ries told are true, not em­bel­lished folk­lore and his ex­pe­ri­ences are real. Sup­port will be by Ags Con­nolly a tra­di­tional coun­try singer­song­writer from Ox­ford­shire. He has built a rep­u­ta­tion as an in­spired song­writer at ma­jor fes­ti­vals and has been de­scribed as the clos­est thing to an ‘English’ Wil­lie Nel­son. He takes his in­flu­ences from the likes of Guy Clark and Loudon Wain­wright III. His sec­ond al­bum, Nothin’ Un­ex­pected was re­leased this year.
