Dronfield Live – Launch Night

Hannah Aldridge & The Goat Roper Rodeo Band

Tuesday 2 July 2019, Doors 7:00pm, Show 7:45pm
Civic Hall, Dronfield, Derbyshire S18 1PQ

An Americana double bill, featuring Hannah Aldridge and The Goat Roper Rodeo Band. Hannah is originally from Alabama but now lives in and plays the circuits of Nashville. Americana UK describe her as “a veritable star in the making” and the Daily Record say she “could fill a room with her own electricity”.

Mixing her personal life and the sounds of her hometown, Hannah Aldridge’s new album also draws in influences from across the rock genre. With one foot in country music and one foot in rock, Hannah makes a fresh kind of Southern rock and has put together a progressive, creative and memorable body of work.

With just an upright bass, two old guitars and a bucketful of aching harmony, The Goat Roper Rodeo Band are preaching country blues like you never hear. It’s up, it’s down, it’s soft and loud, it’s dark and lonesome too, there’s hurt and shame and some mean old pain but there’s love in what they do! There’s a hint of Gram, a sniff of Dylan and a twist of Waylon’s blues. Simply put, it’s exactly what it says on the tin – and they are described as “amazing” by BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris.

Jessica Lynn (Live Out Loud Tour)

Tuesday 13 August 2019, Doors 7.00pm, Show 7:45pm
Civic Hall, Dronfield, Derbyshire S18 1PQ

Compared with Shania Twain, Jessica has been dubbed by press around the world as a rocket force, paving her own way as a unique face and voice in modern country music.

In four years of international touring, Jessica has shared stages with some of the biggest names in Country and Rock music such as Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Clint Black, Phil Vassar, Jo Dee Messina, ZZ Top, and the “Queen of Country” herself, Loretta Lynn. This month she joined the Allman Betts band, the sons of the original Allman Brothers, for the debut of their world tour. She has written songs with some of today’s top hit writers, with her last two singles “Crazy Idea” and “Let’s Don’t”, hit the Top 50 and Top 40 respectively.

This year, Jessica will once again tour around the world, release her third nationwide TV special to begin airing on PBS this summer, and release new music.

Jessica will be supported on the night by the amazing Gasoline & Matches.
