Butterworth Hall: £20 + booking fee
The Be Good Tanyas have captured the hearts of fans and critics alike with their special mixture of deep country, early American folk, old time blues and gospel.
The Be Good Tanyas are voices that come out of the wilderness onto centre stage, with music that transcends their years and transports listeners from the past to the present.
Emily Portman will be the support act for The Be Good Tanyas.
“Three feisty angels…a confident, modern approach to a very traditional sound. Intimate, chilling but always entertaining.” Guardian
“Their music is a marvellous blend and the singing, musicianship and orchestration is simply top notch.” Telegraph
