In the spirit of cross-continental musical camaraderie, two of Europe’s hottest roots-rock and Americana bands are embarking on a set of very special live dates in their respective homelands. At the end of February, fast-rising Essex band The Lucky Strikes will fly to northern Italy to support the country’s number one roots-rock band Lowlands at two shows outside Milan. The following weekend, the Italians will head to the UK where they’ll support The Lucky Strikes at two shows, culminating with a performance at London’s long-running Americana club Come Down And Meet The Folks. Full dates are as follows….
Fri 28 Feb All’ 1 & 35, Cantù, Lombardia
Sat 1 Mar Spaziomusica, Pavia, Lombardia
Sat 8 Mar The Railway Hotel, Southend-on-Sea, Essex
Sun 9 Mar CDAMTF @ The Apple Tree, Clerkenwell, London (5pm kick-off)
The dates will be celebrated with The Low & Lucky EP, a strictly limited featuring both bands covering each others' songs, on sale at gigs and via the Harbour Song Records website.
Lowlands’ current album is Beyond (Stovepony). Frontman Edward Abbiati will be releasing a new album in collaboration with Green On Red’s Chris Cacavas in the summer. The Lucky Strikes’ current album is The Exile And The Sea (Harbour Song). A single from it ‘New Avalon’ will be released in the spring.
