Transatlantic Folk Present….A Different Thread
A Different Thread a collaboration between Robert Jackson (from Lichfield UK) and Alicia Best (from Durham NC, USA). The transatlantic nature of the duo means they can’t always perform together. For this tour, Jackson takes to the stage with his band and guest musicians.
With his stirring voice, wailing harmonica, and fingerpicking guitar, Robert Jackson is a dynamic singer-songwriter delivering a sound that pays tribute to the piedmont blues of Appalachia, merged with the more atmospheric stylings of English folk. A Different Thread’s toe-tapping blend of folk, country, and americana has enthralled audiences from Dublin to New Orleans and gained the attention of both BBC and NPR radio. As poets and travellers at heart, A Different Thread’s though-provoking lyrics deal with romance, reckoning, and the call of the road.
