River Cruise: Rachel Harrington and Massy Ferguson
All aboard HMS SummerTyne for a sail up the Tyne to the sea in the fantastic company of Rachel Harrington and Massy Ferguson.
For more than a dozen years, Massy Ferguson have proudly planted their boots on both sides of the country-rock divide, carving out their own brand of amplified Americana along the way. Based in Seattle, they’ve become international torchbearers of a sound that’s distinctly American, with a touring history that spans
nine different countries.
Homesteading. That’s what Rachel Harrington‘s been up to since music took a backseat to horses and family life back home. Once touted by Maverick Magazine as “the hardest working woman in Americana” due to her relentless touring schedule, Harrington took a sabbatical to recharge.
Hush The Wild Horses, Rachel’s 5th full-length studio album of original songs, releases July of 2019. Its themes are farmed from the last six years at home in Oregon. Family stories, from horses to wheat fields, from Vietnam to the sweet hereafter, from wagon ruts to the interstate, everything dusted with the American West.
