Video: Ida Mae “Boom Boom Boom”

Here’s a forceful new performance of the opening track from Ida Mae’s debut album, ‘Chasing Lights’.  What a year it has been for Ida Mae. They have played 80 shows in the USA and 35 in the UK and Europe, supporting the likes of Alison Krauss, Willie Nelson and Josh Ritter. their debut reached number 8 on Billboard’s Americana / Folk album chart, which is a phenomenal achievement for a new UK band over in the States. Alongside an appearance at the Americana Music Association UK awards, the Album of the Year nominees have announced dates for a UK and Ireland tour.  The duo are impressive performers and well-worth checking out.  You can get a taste of their live shows on the brand new EP release, ‘Live in Memphis’, full of energy and bluesy goodness.  Tickets are on sale now.

From up north but now hiding in rural Suffolk. An insomniac music-lover. Love discovering new music to get lost in - country, singer-songwriters, Americana, rock...whatever. Currently enjoying Lukas Nelson, Midland, Jarrod Dickenson.
