Nov 11: Adrian Nation with opener Lynne Hanson
Adrian Nation - (Great Britain) - November 11
First Nick Opener November 2015
Adrian Nation reminds me of a young Martin Simpson blessed with boundless boldness and unrestricted flair (Roddy Campbell, Penguin Eggs)
From Holland on Sea in Essex UK, Adrians songs are painted from a life of hard work, love and passion, a feeling of connection to all things, of being a part of something that is bigger than himself. Described as an acoustic guitar master Adrian shared stages with Martin Simpson, John Renbourn and Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, whose legendary guitarist, Colin Linden, appears on a track of Fall or Fly. Recorded on tour in the Netherlands, Live At Crossroads was listed in the top ten albums of 2014 by CKUA DJ Andy Donnelly. Guitar builder, rugby player, carpenter, martial artist, climber, he goes and finds the places in life where songs can be found. His music, acoustic guitar-driven, offers touches of folk, rock and country and hes evolved into one of the most insightful songwriters of his generation. Adrians latest CD, Anarchy and Love will be released this fall.
Lynne Hansen - (Ontario) - A Nickelodeon Debut!
Though hailing from Ottawa, her warm, gritty, boot stompin music leads you through the southern USA. Her sound is born honestly through a lifetime of experience, expressed through the rock, blues and roots that bleeds from her very being. With a liberal amount of Texas grit and a polished Nashville sensibility, Lynnes songs are familiar and comfortable, yet fearless and strong. She likes things a little rough around the edges, but her deep bluesy croon is pure and full of fortitude. Her 2017 release Uneven Ground explores the realm of giving sound advice through songwriting, and fighting back against the devil within us.
