Lucinda Williams, John Prine, Bob Dylan, Allison Krauss, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin – this is a short list of the musicians Annie Keating has been compared to over the last twenty years.
Keating writes and sings like a woman who knows deep down that heartache is the price of hope and she makes us believe – in that way that only the best artists can – that all of it is worth the cost.
Talent spotted by BBC Radio’s Bob Harris, she has performed at leading festivals including Take Root (Netherlands), Glasgow Americana Festival (UK), Buscadero (Italy), NXNE and Brooklyn Americana Fest (US). She’s toured internationally in a dozen countries sharing the stage with the likes of John Hiatt and Bon Iver.
She released her 10th album Bristol County Tides in 2021 – a fifteen song tour de hpw force showing a veteran artist at the absolute peak of her powers.
