The Americans can be yours again – more UK dates announced

Los Angeles quartet The Americans, whose latest album “I’ll Be Yours” has been garnering some nice press, seem to like us quite a lot at the moment (maybe it’s to make up for their President) and are returning to our shores once again in January to play Celtic Connections and the UK Americana Music Awards, as well as club shows in Newcastle, Oxford and Leeds. Having started out as a roots band enthralled by pre-war American country and blues, they have evolved into something of an amalgamation of those influences, “injected with a fiery blue collar rock’n’roll attitude, absorbing and reconfiguring the history of American music from Chuck Berry and Tom Waits to Bruce Springsteen.” Dates below.

SAT 27 JAN – Newcastle, The Cluny
SUN 28 JAN – Glasgow, Celtic Connections @ Oran Mor
