A Few Highlights

Americana Live returned on April 29, 2018 this musical extravaganza curated by 22o5 Promotions was held at the Hawth Theatre in Crawley .  Performing were eight great Americana artists (Southern Companion, Society, The Rosellys, The Savannahs, Ags Connolly, Smith & Brewer, My Girl The River and Barbara Nesbitt).  The audience of around 400 people returned again this year.  


The event will be held again in 2019.

 

Americana Live was a musical extravaganza curated by 22o5 Promotions and held at the Hawth Theatre in Crawley in February 2017.  Performing were seven of the very best UK Americana artists (The Redlands Palomino Company, Society, Paul McClure and His Local Heroes, Worry Dolls, Hannah Rose Platt, Jonas & Jane and The Vanguards) for an audience of around 400 people.  

 

Americana came to town when 22o5 Promotions curated three tremendous acts (Underhill Rose, The Allen Family Band and Lauren Housley and her band) for the East Grinstead Town Council summer event, that is known as East Court Live.  On Sunday 4th June 2017, nearly 1500 sun seekers packed the terraces and spilled on to the Mid Sussex playing fields as families picnicked and partied, whilst listening to the finest Americana music.  


We are pleased and very proud to have sourced the artists for  East Court Live.
