COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVALS
All Our Exes Live in Texas
2 Festivals – 1 Weekend
Saturday 26 & Sunday 27 August
WESTPORT & ENNISKILLEN
Aiken Promotions today announced that Logan Brill, Jarrod Dickenson and All Our Exes Live in Texas will join the line-up for the Harvest 2017. Taking place in Westport House, County Mayo and Enniskillen, County Fermanagh each festival will have 2 days of live entertainment featuring 40 International and Irish acts across 4 different Music Stages.
Following her independent sophomore album release ‘Shuteye’, 25-year-old Logan Brill continues to define herself as one of the most important young artists in Nashville today. With a stunning voice that goes toe to toe with Nashville’s finest, the young Knoxville native opts for grit and authenticity over pristine pop in her song choices, drawing comparisons to Bonnie Raitt, Brandi Carlile, and Mary Chapin Carpenter from press.
Outlets like Billboard, The LA Times, Rolling Stone, The Huffington Post, CMT, Country Weekly, & Pollstar have already shown their support for her refreshingly authentic sound. Most recently, Rolling Stone placed Logan on their “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” list, Billboard included her as one of “13 Country Artists to Watch,” and Cosmopolitan dubbed her one of “8 Female Country Artists You Should Be Listening to Right Now.”
Logan has appeared on sold-out bills in markets from Nashville to Chicago to Seattle with iconic artists like Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, & Leon Russell to contemporary mega-stars like Gary Allan, Lee Brice, & The Band Perry. Relentless touring has included stops at famed North Carolina roots festival Merlefest, California’s Stagecoach – the nation’s highest grossing country music festival, a Grand Ole Opry performance with the legendary Vince Gill, and her return to the U.K. at 2017’s C2C Festival.
Storytelling is something of a Texas tradition and singer-songwriter, Jarrod Dickenson can spin a yarn with the best of them. Hailing from Waco, now based in Brooklyn, Dickenson spends most of his time on the road bringing his own particular brand of soulful Americana to a wide variety of music loving audiences around the globe.
Jarrod’s critically acclaimed album ‘The Lonesome Traveler’ and his subsequent EP ‘Songs From Willow St’ paved the way for him to tour the UK, Ireland and Europe extensively over the last several years. Breakout performances at Glastonbury and Larmer Tree Festival, along with recent tours supporting legendary artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Don McLean and The Waterboys have earned Jarrod a formidable and loyal fan base across the globe, including BBC radio hosts Dermot O’Leary, Cerys Matthews, Huey Morgan, Janice Long, Robert Elms and Alex Lester. Jarrod’s new album, ‘Ready The Horses’ to be released on Decca Records autumn 2017.
“In the tradition of old southern Americana, but with a feel of something current; storytelling with soul.” -Chris Hawkins, BBC Radio 6 Music
