The dynamic transatlantic trio A DIFFERENT THREAD, are set to bring their acclaimed ‘British-Americana’ show to the UK.

The story of A Different Thread began with a serendipitous meeting, busking on the streets of Galway, Ireland.  Alicia Best of Durham, North Carolina, and Englishman, Robert Jackson from the West Midlands. Their impromptu harmonies sparked a creative partnership that has flourished over eight years of independent music-making and living on the road.

Known for their hair-raising vocal harmonies, intricate guitar, soulful fiddle, harmonica, and Alicia’s distinctive suitcase drum-kit, the duo has forged a minimalist yet powerful sound that resonates deeply with listeners.

Their songs delve into themes of travel and life on the road, parting ways, reuniting, being at a crossroads, counter-culture, and ultimately, change. Folk Radio UK lauded them as “warm, deep songwriters” with “a strong, independent sound,” a testament to their ability to craft songs that connect with audiences on a human level.
