Manchester Americana Festival
Following the success of the last 5 festivals, the 6th Manchester Americana Festival will take place on Saturday 13th May 2017. This year we’re using the same venue as last year, the Prestwich Legion club, which is already becoming well established as one of North Manchester’s leading live music venues. The Legion is at 225 Bury Old Road, Prestwich, Manchester M25 1JE, and is very close to Heaton Park metro station.
As before, the lineup is a mixture of well-established and up-and-coming acts, with an emphasis on New Country. Admission is only £5 (pay on the door) for the whole day, so make the most of it and get there early! There are plenty of places nearby to grab a bite to eat during the day.
Programme for the day:

1pm – doors open

1.40pm – surprise special guests, obviously playing something in the Americana vein!

2.20pm – G.J.Armstrong
G.J.’s self-penned songs are musically in the Americana style, but lyrically they reflect the times we live in, from the pitfalls of Facebook etiquette to the decline of our manufacturing industries (“Jobs no more”). https://gjarmstrong.bandcamp.com/releases

3.20pm – Orpheus and The Rainbow
Mossley’s favourite psychedelics move into Americana territory to great effect – we hope they will do their song about building the wall, for obvious reasons! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4_X-ym1waI

4.20pm – Woski
Tameside-based alt country outfit, influenced by Sparklehorse and a dose of psychedelia, featuring the distinctive vocal style of frontman Hari.https://soundcloud.com/titch-mctitch/nhc-2017 


5.20 – The Yellhounds
Classic country rock with immaculate vocal harmonies – their version of Lowell George’s “Willin’” is an absolute showstopper. https://www.reverbnation.com/theyellhounds

6.20pm – Risa Hall
The one genuine American on the bill, having grown up with The Ramones in Forest Hills, NYC. Her music is an intoxicating mix of pop, soul, jazz and country, and recent album “Love is telepathic” has received excellent reviews. https://www.reverbnation.com/risahall 

7.20pm – Picnic Area
Our lovable alt country hedonists already have two well-received studio albums behind them. As well as heading in more of a powerpop direction musically, their recent songs are influenced by the political state of Britain and the world in 2016/17. https://picnicareamusic.wordpress.com/

8.20pm – Izzie Walsh
Izzie has an awe-inspiring voice; she and her band play a highly powerful, emotional version of Americana. https://soundcloud.com/izziewalsh orhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLPrCkZvScs

9.20pm – Beulah String Band
A supergroup in their musical genre, formed by Andrew Butler and John McKay of the Hatstand Band and Dom Dudill of Bo Weavil – sheer entertainment is guaranteed. https://drbutlershatstandmedicineband.bandcamp.com/ 
10.20pm – George Borowski and the Fabulous Wonderfuls
George needs no introduction, he’s a Manchester legend and the “Guitar George” of the Dire Straits song. His music could be described as Americana, or powerpop, but basically it is just wonderful songwriting. Highly respected in the music industry, earlier this year he was personally invited by the brilliant Teenage Fanclub to support them on their European tour. http://www.georgeborowski.com/media.php
