CLUB AMERICANA - RUSSELL DECARLE WITH DENIS KELDIE AND STEVE BRIGGS

Harbour Arts Centre, Irvine

CLUB AMERICANA - RUSSELL DECARLE WITH DENIS KELDIE AND STEVE BRIGGS

Legendary Canadian artist Russell deCarle famously fronted iconic country roots band Prairie Oyster, racking up an impressive list of awards, gold and platinum selling records and No 1 singles. On tour in pared-back trio format, bound together by a superlative level of playing and performance that is rare and precious. DeCarle, Denis Keldie and Steve Briggs are as close to joined-at-the-hip perfection as you will ever encounter.

The musicianship is dazzling. Even when the tone is understated and in a ‘nice and easy does it’ groove, they deliver a super-cool style that lies somewhere between JJ Cale and the very best rock ‘n’ roll you’ll hear.

Tickets: £12/£10.
