THE WEEPING WILLOWS’ DEVIL’S ROAD TOUR
17 dates in 7 US states!

“You’d better run and hide,
You’d better pray and cry!
‘Cause the Devil’s Road gonna steal your soul…”

The Weeping Willows return to The Listening Room of Mobile in support of their new single, ‘Devil’s Road’, taken from their 4 x Golden Guitar nominated album, Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’. They are joined by exciting new Americana duo, Great Aunt, who are making waves on the scene with their unique Alt-Folk/Gospel sound. The Devil’s Road Tour sees both acts ‘road testing’ new material, sharing songs and stories of life, love and loss.

The Weeping Willows:
The Weeping Willows, Laura Coates and Andrew Wrigglesworth, are a couple of old souls, steeped in Bluegrass tradition and draped in Gothic Americana imagery. They regale their audiences with stories of sunshine and romance, God and The Devil, murder and decay. Real music.

2015-2019 has seen The Weeping Willows nominated for 5 x CMAA awards, 4 x CMC awards, performing at AmericanaFest (USA), Folk Alliance International (USA), Maverick Festival (UK), Port Fairy Folk Festival and the Australian Americana Honours Night plus supporting Lukas Nelson & POTR, Hayes Carll, Iris DeMent, Eilen Jewell, Willie Watson, Cory Branan, Kevin Welch and Tim Easton. A Weeping Willows performance, whether live or caught on tape, will always delight.

Great Aunt:
Great Aunt is an Americana/Roots duo from Melbourne, Australia, rambling a musical line between the plaintive and the joyous. Their music is raw and austere, simple and bold; full of stomping feet and clapping hands, chants and harmonies, whispered words and soulful lament. Set somewhere between a Gospel Church in Louisiana and a dimly-lit speakeasy in Melbourne, listeners will hear tales of joy and grief, whiskey and wine, gratitude and purpose-seeking.

“Great Aunt gives us folk-based Americana music tinged with shades of Bluegrass and Gospel and capture the true spirit of this genre with their soulful renditions.” – LA Music Critic Blog.
