Tris Robinson from Nottingham makes an impassioned plea for The Turnpike Troubadours to get more coverage. We hear you Tris.
“The older I get, the grumpier I become. Usually about politics and religion, or football, which is not for this forum, however, another gripe is music, It never ceases to amaze me how mediocre, bland bands and artists get praised to the heavens and infinite airtime when more deserving cases, in my opinion, are practically ignored…. artists such as Jason Isbell and John Moreland don’t get a look in, and neither do my pick, ‘The Turnpike Troubadours’. I was fortunate enough to see them at the now-defunct ‘Maze’ in Nottingham on 9th February 2017. They were brilliant.”
Tris sent us a link to that Maze gig but unfortunately the audience taken footage wasn’t of sufficient quality to do the band justice, so we’re using a clip from Austin City Limits featuring one of the Troubadours best songs.
