River Town Bristol 2019


The fifth edition of River Town again takes place at venues across Bristol including St George’s Bristol, The O2 Academy, SWX, The Winston Theatre at Bristol University SU and The Crofters Rights, and also makes its first foray into Bath with two performances at The Forum.

Celebrating 30 years on the road, The Mavericks will be kicking off River Town proceedings on Thursday 20 June at Bath Forum, while at the same venue the following month (Wednesday 17 July), Grammy award-winning pop and country superstar k.d. lang will celebrate the 25th anniversary of her critically acclaimed album, ‘Ingénue’.

On Sunday 28 July, country rock icon Lucinda Williams will perform at The O2 Academy. The three time Grammy award winner was named in 2017 by Rolling Stone as one of the ‘100 Greatest Country Artists of All Time,’ and Williams celebrated the 20th anniversary of her breakthrough album ‘Car Wheels’ on a Gravel Road last year.

On Tuesday 9 July, it will be the turn of award-winning duo, The Shires to bring their distinctive brand of country pop to St George’s Bristol for a stripped back acoustic show. This will be the duo’s third appearance at River Town following sell-out performances in 2016 and 2017.

Hollywood legend and star of the hit TV show 24 Kiefer Sutherland will be performing at SWX on Monday 22 July, following the release of his second country album ‘Reckless & Me’ in April. While country music is the beating heart of Sutherland’s latest work, its songs span wider Americana, encompassing folk, rock, and blues. They’re all connected by Sutherland’s love of sharing stories, whether by recounting snapshots of his own life or relating the experiences of others.

The legendary master of roots music Keb’ Mo’, whose understated excellence live and in the studio have garnered him four Grammy awards, numerous high-profile collaborations with the likes of Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahal, and legions of fans, will be giving a rare performance with the support of very special guest Martin Harley on Monday 1 July at St George’s Bristol.

This first wave of line-up announcements is rounded off by the gifted multi-instrumentalist Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton (Tuesday 25 June, Winston Theatre at Bristol University SU) and Brooklyn-based blues trio Daddy Long Legs (Tuesday 25 July, Crofters Rights).
