My Darling Clementine in Concert

Event information

For what began life as a side project to the successful solo careers of Michael Weston King & Lou Dalgleish My Darling Clementine is now very much part of the country and Americana landscape. 3 critically acclaimed albums, over 400 shows across Europe & N. America, and numerous accolades has placed the band at the forefront of the burgeoning Americana scene. The debut “How Do You Plead? was produced by Neil Brockbank (Nick Lowe, Jim Lauderdale,Tift Merritt) and featured some of London’s finest musicians from the 70’s pub rock era. Players who understood ‘classic country’. Released in 2011, it was immediately acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic. Country Music People called it; “The greatest British country record ever made while American Songwriter stated “this is as authentic as anything out of Nashville or Texas…A batch of superb C&W corkers. Such praise led to a US record deal and invitations to appear at the Americana Music Association in Nashville and SXSW in Austin in 2013 2013s follow-up, “The Reconciliation, produced by Colin Eliot (Richard Hawley, Duane Eddy) and featuring guest appearances from Kinky Freidman and The Brodsky Quartet only enhanced the bands growing reputation and received a similar critical response. Uncut exclaimed; “The husband-and-wife duo serve up more countrified duet thrills…on this form, it’s a winning formula that looks set to run and run, while in the States the New York Daily News choose it as album of the week while Popmatters put it in their Top 10 Country Albums of 2013. Re-uniting with Neil Brockbank for the fourth album, Still Testifying, was recorded over the summer of 2016 and will be released in May 2017 Stylistically, it is a further shifting away from classic country to embrace gospel and country soul… ‘more Delaney & Bonnie than George & Tammy’. But if the musical landscape has changed then the message and tone of the songs stay pretty constant. 2 adults, a man and woman, singing to each, about each other, for and against each other.
