Live country concerts in London
A soulful blues singer from Memphis, June plays what she calls 'organic moonshine roots music'. She has supported Jake Bugg, wrote her latest album with Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys and quickly sold out her 100 Club gig in March. We don't have to tell you twice not to miss this.
Every year this indoor festival brings Nashville to Greenwich for British fans of US country music. Alongside big headliners from the contemporary country scene there are side stages to showcase new talent from both sides of the Atlantic, and markets and pop-up stages around The O2 which are open for all comers. Get polishing them boots.
