The American country band, The Delines, returns to the Netherlands and performs in our Small Hall! Led by singer-songwriter Amy Boone, they enchant the audience time and again with their unique soul-roots sound. With beautiful, dreamy vocals, profound narrative lyrics by guitarist Willy Vlautin, and their distinctive 'late-night countrysoul' style, it promises to be a lovely evening. On this night, they'll be playing their classics and offering a preview of brand-new songs that will be featured on the upcoming album.

The latest album by The Delines, "The Sea Drift," was described by De Volkskrant as "a literary masterpiece in 11 chapters" and praised as one of the most beautiful albums of the year in the UK and Europe. On their second-to-last album 'The Imperial', you'll find a relaxed blend of country soul, beautiful narrative lyrics, and Boone's heartfelt vocals. This album was also mentioned in De Volkskrant, described as "a literary music gem".

The lyrics by guitarist Willy Vlautin are masterful, as you would expect from an award-winning novelist who has also had some of his books adapted into films. Just like in his books, his songs are often imbued with somber, melancholic feelings about people for whom life always seems to go wrong and relationships that are falling apart or on the verge of doing so. Packaged in unparalleled 'late night countrysoul', listening is a breathtaking experience.

Special guests: Our Man In the Field and Freddy Trujillo

Alexander Ellis started as a solo singer-songwriter in London and quickly found like-minded musicians to form the band Our Man In The Fields: Henry Senior on pedal steel and dobro, Greg Bishop on drums and backing vocals, and Tom Rosenfeld on bass. Their music is a blend of indie, folk, and americana.

Freddy Trujillo is a singer/songwriter and bassist from California. In addition to his own solo band and three albums, Freddy has also been a full-time member of The Delines. His latest release from 2022, "Sketch of a Man," is an eclectic mix of styles filled with poetic reminiscences, melodies, and grooves.
