Lars Pluto and The Reavers

 

Lars Pluto was born just outside Atlanta, Georgia to a family that was also a touring Southern Baptist Gospel Bluegrass group. They traveled the entirety of the southern highways of America and by age thirteen Lars had lived in just about every state south of the Mason Dixon Line.

 

"Music just was. It was everywhere when I was growing up...country, rock n roll, gospel...it's all mixed up in the air down there. Kentucky left me with a certain sound; Tennessee left me with another. It gets in you in the South and you gotta get it out. You can't help it. Then we moved north to frozen Kalamazoo, Michigan. That's where I found rock and punk in the birthplace of the electric guitar."

 

A decade in New York City followed with Lars performing in several country and rockabilly bands before he moved to London. These days Lars can be found splitting his time between his own country combo Lars Pluto and The Reavers, and performing as Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash in the West End and several national touring theatre productions.

 

 

 

HICKTOWN BREAKOUT

They perform a strong mix of the latest award winning southern rock from artists such as Whiskey Myers, Brothers Osbourne, Blackberry Smoke, Josh Thompson, Kendell Marvel, The Cadillac Three....the list goes on! Coupled with thier own original, fresh modern take on Southern Rock, they deliver a great sound with a whiskey fueled twang.

 

Amy Westney

 

Country music is a genre held together by storytelling and when it comes to her songwriting and performance, Amy Westney is well known for doing just that. Knowing how to bring a wave of emotion through the audience with every line is something Amy can deliver every time.

Her outlook, personality and eagerness to succeed in the industry have opened many doors for Amy and allowed her to create a strong musical network in both the USA and UK. Travelling out to Nashville, Tennessee each year keeps her mind fresh with the sound coming out of Music City and brings in a true authentic old school sound to her songs and writing. With current artists such as Margo Price, Ashley McBryde, Miranda Lambert and Brandy Clark influencing Amy's music she certainly has a lot to offer.

 

 

 

 

Kerry Fearon

 

Petite Kerry Fearon, a genuine down-home Irish country girl raised in a loving family on a diet of music, fun and hard work. Her great passion is country music, mainly the more traditional sounds with pedal steel guitar and fiddles and lyrics that pack an emotional punch as they explore the kind of relationship issues we all face in our lives.

 

Though Kerry is a relative newcomer to the music scene, she’s experienced a lifetime of ups-and-downs. This energetic bundle of talent seemingly never stands still. A qualified Business Studies Teacher, Kerry holds down a full-time vocation as a Special Needs Teacher. In addition to this, she presents the Homegrown Hour on Downtown Country Radio every night at 10pm and Ireland’s Hot 7 chart which goes out on both Downtown Country and Downtown Radio on a Sunday night. She also hosts her TV show Kerry’s Gold Country on the Keep It Country TV channel every Friday evening.

 

Kerry Fearon possesses a great voice oozing warmth and intimacy that makes you believe the lyrics of each and every song that she sings. Her confident, assured turn on Gram Parsons’ Luxury Liner not only provides a crucial reminder that country’s women are often the ones pushing the genre forward but offers a prime soundtrack for open-road adventures and whiskey-filled nights. She settles into an old-school groove that feels both comfortingly familiar and vibrantly new on her revival of Loretta Lynn’s Honkytonk Girl. Together these songs are the essence of what country music should be and Kerry Fearon is simply a masterful interpreter of these classic country themes.
