The first ever A Taste of Americana Festival will take place at Sydney’s iconic Enmore Theatre on Sunday October 14.
Tickets go on sale this morning at 10.00am via TICKETEK.COM.
The all-ages event will feature a stellar seven-act bill showcasing some of the exploding genre’s most talented local and international acts, and will be headlined by Nashville powerhouse Margo Price. Kicking off at 2pm, the one-day festival will offer over seven hours of blues, roots, country and Americana.
Jack White’s protégé, Margo Price, will be joined by fellow Statesiders; seminal singer-songwriter Kevin Welch, storyteller and founding member of Old Crow Medicine Show, Willie Watson, and label mate Joshua Hedley, who has been touted as his generation’s classic country champion.
Three Australian stars will round out the daylong event, led by multi-ARIA and APRA Award winner and multi-platinum recording artist Kasey Chambers, who will play songs from her latest release Campfire, plus favourites spanning her entire career. With a critically acclaimed record, Empire, under his belt, William Crighton will take time out from his global tour to join the Taste of Americana celebrations, whilst local road warriors Little Georgia will add a unique dynamic to the mix.
“It’s all the good stuff,” says Jim Lauderdale of the Americana genre. “If you look through the list of acts playing at the Awards and the Americana Festival you know that for a fact. There is no better way of summing it up: It’s all the good stuff.”
