Have a good weekend dear readers. We’ll be at Black Deer trying to not get drunk too early in the day so do come up and say hello if you recognise any of our faces (I look like a more haggard version of the face pic next to each article). Leaving you with a link to this piece from RS Country who have listed their favourite americana and country albums of 2018 so far, which has some firm AUK favourites in there including Old Crow Medicine Show, Mary Gauthier and Joshua Hedley (just to spoil three surprises for you). From the list too, here’s the rather ace Sarah Shook with her Disarmers from our friends over at Bloodshot. Have a good one.
