Turnpike Troubadours bring some Red Dirt to Benelux this week13-02-2017
From Oklahoma, USA the Turnpike Troubadours have established themselves as one of the must see acts on the US Red Dirt Circuit. The Guardian included them in their top 10 best country album of last year. Premiering on Benelux soil, we’re excited to have them over for three exclusive shows this week.
After years of buzz on the indie circuit the Turnpike Troubadours are ready for their closeup. The band defies the assumption that making real country music is somehow antiquated or uncool, and their fiddle-laden Red Dirt compositions resonate with a new generation of country music fans.
The Troubadours’ s/t third album demonstrates a pitch-perfect balance of old school instrumental music (the sound of real drums is so sweet to ears too used to electronic drum beats) and memorable melodies with lyrics by lead singer Evan Felker and bassist RC Edwards that offer up a smart take on life, as seen through the eyes of young men that spend much of their time in smoky bars.
