The Shires build Nashville in London!

I recently attended a concert at the Water Rats in London headlined by UK country-duo The Shires. This was the penultimate leg of their UK tour. Supporting them on tour was Jersey-based Frankie Davies. To my surprise, Gary Quinn from Ireland was also performing at that particular concert.


It was fun-filled night of promoting British country music and sharing one’s stories through deep and powerful songs. Having previously met Frankie before, I also had a chance to meet The Shires – consisting of Crissie Rhodes and Ben Earle – and Gary Quinn as well. I met her photographer cousin, Mel, who owns Mel Brown Studios, and I also met Jennifer, tour manager for The Shires.


I had a chance to experiment with my own photography – see HERE – and I managed to do it while juggling a glass of white wine in the other hand – there’s an eyewitness.


Anyway, I managed to have my review published on ukCOUNTRYmusic.NET, the UK’s main (fan) website dedicated to promoting American and British country music, a hub for country fans everywhere to gather together and join in with the new wave that is changing the British music scene as we speak.
