After a turbulent couple of years, young and rising folk troubadour Josh Okeefe has announced his return to the stage with a busy August 2021 schedule of live shows and festival appearances in the UK. Finally getting the chance to showcase his critically acclaimed debut full-length album ‘Bloomin’ Josh Okeefe’, Josh will kick off his string of UK dates at the Craufurd Arms, Milton Keynes and will end at the Liverpool Irish Centre.
Having performed sold-out shows from California to New York and from Nashville to London and Glasgow, Okeefe has shared stages with legends including Kris Kristofferson, playing for a crowd of 10,000 at London’s Kenwood House for the iconic songwriter’s birthday celebration. He’s also performed with Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Alison Krauss and Rufus Wainwright, among many others. In addition, he has joined Bernie Sanders for a ‘Virtual Town Hall Meeting’, he’s appeared at protest events, helping to draw attention to the Black Lives Matter movement and at the site of the tragic 2017 Grenfell Tower fire in West London, where he performed an original song recounting the harrowing event.
