First ever visit to UK for acclaimed Austin Texas singer/songwriter’s Brennen Leigh & Noel McKay’s brand new outfit High Plains Jamboree.
Like many of their Americana peers, country-grass band High Plains Jamboree celebrate days of old. But few do it with as much verve as this Austin, Texas, foursome. During a performance at East Nashville’s Family Wash, the group wooed their audience with a sound that evokes Old Crow Medicine Show and Carolina Chocolate Drops, delivering string-based rave-ups and even a stray murder ballad – the haunting “Rozene” – all from behind a giant 1940s-style microphone.
