Southern US sunshine at Barton’s Ropery Hall
American roots singer song-writer Bronwynne Brent will be bring her own brand of southern sunshine to Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall early next month as part of her visit to the UK.
Born and raised in the Mississippi Delta, Bronwynne has the kind of stop-in-your-tracks voice that sounds like Southern sunshine.
“Like a Juke Joint Nancy Sinatra, Bronwynne unites all the best elements of Southern American roots music, and ties these many different influences into a sound that’s comforting and refreshing,” said promoter Mark Keable of mtm promotions.
“She will be promoting her second album, Stardust, which was released last year and which is the kind of album that could only come out of the south,” said Mark. “Apart from a hint of Delta blues and a glimpse of honky-tonk twang there is also the hint of the dark undercurrent of country that starts with old Appalachian murder ballads and continues to today’s current crop of psychedelic country songwriters. “
“Her voice sounds aged beyond its years, brittle and fragile, almost as if it might shatter into razor-sharp fragments under too much pressure. But underneath everything there’s a steel spine to this music, a thoroughly grounded foundation in American roots music.” Mark went on.
Her work has already attracted the attention of BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris who has, featured music from both her albums on many occasions as he told listeners she was “really special” and declared himself a fan.
Bronwynne will be on stage at Ropery Hall on Friday, February 6, at 8pm. Tickets cost £12 in advance or £14 on the door and can be booked online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, by calling in at the Craft Gallery or by phoning 01652 660380.
