Wednesday 7th May 2014 - AUDREY AULD & MEAN MARY - at Faversham Folk Club, The Chimney Boy

Faversham Folk Club
AUDREY AULD & MEAN MARY
7.30    Ticket Price £7 / £8

Devils are not the only thing to come from Tasmania. Singer-songwriter Audrey Auld's heart is in Country/Folk music, with a presence as big as The Outback. Her songs are the wry and poignant observations of an Aussie troubadour touring the States since 2003. Recorded in Nashville, Auld's 2013 release Tonk is a breath of fresh country air, right out of a Saturday night honky tonk.

Ever the fearlessly independent woman, she runs her own label Reckless Records and enjoys great success as a songwriter. Auld's songs are recorded by Nashville stars and Carter Family descendants, are heard on the Grand Ole Opry, TV shows (Justified, The Good Guys, Longmire) and within the walls of San Quentin Prison where she has hosted songwriting workshops since 2006.

“Mean” Mary James, youngest of six children, was born in Geneva, Alabama, though her family lived in Florida, a couple miles below the Alabama line. Her mom (author, Jean James) and dad (WWII veteran, William James) lived a very nomadic lifestyle. On one occasion they packed up the family (Mary was four at the time) and moved from Florida to North Minnesota, near the Canadian border, to rough it in the wilds.

Today she labors on her TV show, produces music for herself and other artists, produces shows and videos, is co-writing a novel trilogy about the music world, is an endorsing artist for Deering Banjos, and is constantly touring.

Sunday 11th May 2014 - MASHVILLE - at The Market Inn

2.30 to 5.00
MASHVILLE is an Americana band based in Kent, UK. Influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Ryan Adams, Nick Cave, Johnny Cash, Wilco, The Deep Dark Woods (the list goes on..), the band has been carving out a slightly more unique sound than normal on the South East UK live music circuit.

With perhaps more hints of alt-country than country, don't be fooled by the name - this ain't no country band (the name was actually inspired by an Alabama 3 track). Our music is a blend of fresh, original, dynamic songs and obscure covers we think you'll like.
