AmericanaFest UK announce showcase line-up

This year’s UK Americana Awards, hosted by the AMA-UK (not to be confused with AUK, although we both feature the words “americana” and “UK” – what are the chances?) take place next week in London and as part of the week which also includes a 2 day conference, there’ll be an evening of curated showcases from twenty new and established artists in the americana music scene, including Angaleena Presley, Robert Vincent, Wild Ponies, Jess Morgan and lead singer of the greatest US band of the nineties, possible ever, Toad the Wet Sprocket: Glen Phillips (editorially speaking of course).

Separate showcase only tickets are available at the early bird price of £10 (rising to £15) and allow entry to all 3 venues – you can buy them here. AUK will be at the awards ceremony next week. In the meantime, here’s the full line-up for the showcase:
