Cordovas are over for Benelux shows next week


As the harmony-heavy, guitar-fueled house band at a Big Pink key party in 1968: that's how Cordovas sound. For fans of Grateful Dead's American Beauty, Little Feat's Dixie Chicken and Dawes' North Hills.

Already considered cult favorites in Nashville, Cordovas have built honorary home bases across the globe, thanks to recurring shows in Todos Santos, Mexico – where ringleader Joe Firstman runs the yearly Tropic of Cancer Concert Series – and a touring schedule that recently including headlining gigs in Europe and a US run alongside the Turnpike Troubadours.

The band's sound, though, is decidedly American. Caught halfway between Duane Allman's Telecaster twang, the Dead's hazy harmonies and the stoned swoon of California's folk-rock heyday, Cordovas wring new life from older influences, hoisting their freak flag high on their upcoming album, That Santa Fe Channel.

Cordovas are over for a handful of Benelux shows at the end of October and early November:

31 Oct: Leiden (NL) - Q-Bus
1 Nov: Oldenzaal (NL) - Cobblestone
2 Nov: Helmond (NL) - Cacaofabriek
3 Nov: Essen (BE) - Heuvelzicht
4 Nov: Groningen (NL) - Take Root Festival
