This July the 30th Justin Currie, Karine Polwart, James Grant, Kris Drever, Dean Owens, and Emma Pollock will join special Canadian guests Cyndi Cain and Joey Landreth and a house band led by Stuart Nisbet to explore the influence Canadian artists have exerted over generations of writers and performers across the world, in particular those playing music with roots in the southern states of the USA. These include The Band, the original Americana group, and icons who defined what it was to be a songwriter – Neil Young, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell. North Star will also include songs by some of Canada’s seemingly endless roll-call of great artists in a unique one-off show that will appeal to all fans of great songwriting.
Southern Fried also includes smaller gigs in city centre venues, open mic sessions, a free outdoor stage, a daytime acoustic stage and various fringe events plus a generous serving of the famous Southern Fried soul food. More acts are still to be announced. Get your tickets here.
