Exclusive AUK Mini-Gig: Ags Connolly

In these strange times when people around the world are literally living in isolation, we are trying to spread a little joy by asking some of our favourite acts to perform exclusive mini-gigs for the AUK community.  This is a real treat: two songs from the great Ags Connolly.  Beautiful songwriting, perfect guitar playing and characterful vocals – it’s all here to help get you through!  The first song, ‘Say it Out Loud’ is from one of last year’s stand-out albums, ‘Wrong Again’, described by Bob Harris as, “Modern day traditionalism of the very, very best kind.”  Here at AUK, we said that the album is “…for anyone longing to reach country music on real terms.”

Then we have a performance of ‘Do You Realise That Now’ from his second album.  Loved by critics, Connolly is one of the best traditional country acts to come out of the UK.  Thanks Ags!  And as the man says, “Stay safe out there.”

  1. Awesome. Ags Connolly is a fantastic songwriter. The equal of anything Nashville currently has in terms of singing proper country tunes.
