Nashville-based singer-songwriter Brigitte DeMeyer and not Nashville based singer-songwriter-guitarist Will Kimbrough have announced some UK tour dates in support of their new album Mockingbird Soul which we described as “a wonderful thing to behold”. Though Kimbrough can play just about any noise-making object on the planet, he was named the Americana Music Association’s 2004 Instrumentalist of the Year and is renowned as a guitarist who’s collaborated and toured with Todd Snider, Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris, Jimmy Buffett and many others, while DeMeyer has opened for Bob Dylan and Gregg Allman and toured with John Mayall. So you know, they’re both quite good. Here are those dates.
