Australian Americana Music Honours
The second annual Australian Americana Music Honours will take place at Melbourne’s stunning Thornbury Theatre on Thursday 11th October.
Presented by Michael Chugg, Nash Chambers and the international Americana Music Association, the Australian Americana Honours Night is a celebration of Americana music in Australia, and will showcase a sensational array of the best local and international artists that the genre has to offer.
An explosive line-up will take the stage, led by Nashville powerhouse Margo Price, who was discovered and signed by Jack White. Joining Margo will be fellow Statesider Joshua Hedley, along with local talents Diesel, Little Georgia, Shane Howard, Kevin Welch, William Crighton, Weeping Willows and Kasey Chambers featuring Alan Pigram.
“Americana is that sweet spot between folk and country, rock and blues. More than roots, it pulls in almost all the strands of American music whether it’s made with acoustic or electric instruments, is as modern as Dixie Chicks covering Beyonce, as old as a cotton field work song played on a crackling shellac 78, and can be made in Memphis, Manchester or Melbourne.
“Margo Price can cut from Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton to Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, Joshua Hedley feels like the early 60s reincarnated, while Kasey Chambers makes a modern desert campfire song sound timeless”. – Bernard Zuel
