Bristol Americana Weekend is only a week away, on the 15th of 16th of July, and if you haven’t already been blown away by the line up, prepare to be blown away. You know, hold on to your hats and stuff.
Topping the bill of this year’s festival is the legendary Elvis Costello. He hasn’t played the festival since 2013 and will be making his way through his impressively eclectic back catalog. Seriously, if you haven’t danced to ‘Oliver’s Army’ at a family wedding at least once, you definitely haven’t lived.
Also playing in the main hall of the Colston hall are the fantastic Mary Chapin Carpenter and Lucinda Williams, who between them have won 8 Grammy awards between them. There will be acts playing in the Lantern and St George’s all over the two days, so drape yourself in all the stars’n’stripes you own, strap on your stetson and get yourself down.
