With their latest album ‘The Truth and the Lie’ reaching number 3 in the UK Country chart, Red Sky July will follow a string of festival appearances – including Cornbury & Somerset Rocks with Jools Holland – with a headline show at London’s Bush Hall on September 19th.
Shelly Poole, one third of Red Sky July says,
“We are super excited to announce our first headline show at Bush Hall in September. We’ve played there many times in and with different bands, last time supporting the fabulous Amy Helm. The sound is perfect for our kind of music and we plan to put on a one off show suited for the venue. Hope to see you there for a fabulous evening!”
Earlier in 2016 Red Sky July performed at Britain’s C2C Festival at London’s O2 Arena and received praise for their classic songwriting, musicianship and harmonies from country and non-country critics alike.
Country Music People gave their recent album 5/5 saying,
“The Truth and The Lie has everything to commend it, really good singing and harmonies, excellent lyrics, strong melodies and superb production”. R2 magazine also gave it 5 stars, stating that “Red Sky July continue to go from strength to strength.”
