SummerTyne Americana Festival 2017

Jesca Hoop and Worry Dolls

SummerTyne Late Lounge

Please note this is an all standing event

Jesca Hoop
Compellingly unique, hugely talented American singer-songwriter and guitarist, Jesca’s new album Memories Are Now wastes no time in making clear its confidence, confrontation and craftsmanship.

With stunningly original songs – minimalist yet brimming with energy, emerging from a wealth of life experience, great emotional depth and years of honing the craft of singing.

As riveting as it is reflective, the album produced by the gifted Blake Mills (Fiona Apple, Alabama Shakes) is a fresh debut of sorts for Hoop, more than a decade into her career, as it is the first of her solo records made outside of Tony Berg’s Zeitgeist Studios.

Worry Dolls
This young exciting duo’s chemistry and love of harmony led them to starting a contemporary bluegrass band.

Their sound blends Zoe Nicol’s Irish-influenced voice, ukulele and banjo with the fiery integrity of Rosie Jones’ vocals and rhythmic guitar. Their debut album was recorded in Nashville with producer Neilson Hubbard, a veteran of the music scene with an ear for successful collaborations and a strong focus on vocals.

Worry Dolls went down a storm performing on the AMA-UK Concourse Stage at SummerTyne 2016 so we are delighted to welcome them back.
