Into the Blue is Alice Wallace’s fourth album but marks her debut on the brand-new Rebelle Road label, an imprint founded by a trio of women dedicated to strengthening the California Country music community and expanding visibility for female artists in the Americana/roots genre. “They care so deeply about giving women a stronger voice in the music industry,” Wallace attests. Having spent the past six years writing songs and touring the nation – from AMERICANAFEST® to county fairs, barrooms to coffeehouses – Alice Wallace is ready to break out. “It takes bravery to ‘sail away into the blue’ and grab it,” she says. “It took me until about six years ago to finally take the plunge, quit my job and go for it. I haven’t looked back since.”

Another wonderful evening of live music lined up in East Grinstead, this time we welcome Scotish singer songwriter Martha L. Healy to The Bookshop.  


Martha's new album, "Keep the Flame Alight" was written mostly in Nashville in 2016 and she returned there to record in October 2017. The album was released in 2018 at Glasgow Americana Festival. It entered the ITunes Country charts and has received praise for its lyrical and melodic content.

Martha is a constant live performer and has played the BlueBird Cafe, Nashville Palace, Douglas Corner on her regular state-side trips. Back home in Scotland, she often performs as a duo with fellow Scottish Americana singer-songwriter, Al Shields. Recent live festival performances have included C2C, Glasgow Americana Festival, Eden Festival, Southern Fried Festival (Perth), HebCelt (Isle of Lewis), Red Rooster (Suffolk), Arisaig Americana (Scottish Highlands).

In 2019, Martha has also played at Celtic Connections in her hometown of Glasgow, supporting Jill Jackson, and she showcased officially at AMA UK's AmericanaFest in London. She embarks on her first Irish tour in August 2019

Lisa Mills is no stranger to The Hawth, she last played there in 2017 and it's great to welcome her back.  A Mississippi native, now Alabama resident Lisa could be called a blues singer, or a gospel singer, or a torch singer or an R&B singer, and each label would be accurate. 


A special and deeply personal project, Mama’s Juke Book is comprised of songs Lisa found by chance in her late mother’s possessions—specifically, in a Dollar Store General spiral notebook in which her mother had handwritten lyrics to 25 of her favorite country tunes, all dating from the early ‘70s. Her mother was a country music devotee who unfortunately passed away in 2012. In a real sense Mama’s Juke Book is a love letter from daughter to mother but it is also a Southern cultural timepiece capturing mainstream country music in a transitional period ahead of the emergence of the Outlaw movement in the mid-‘70s. 


Although the content of Mama’s Juke Book is drawn from country, Lisa’s interpretive artistry takes country for a new spin when chestnuts originally recorded by the likes of Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley, Buck Owens, Conway Twitty and others are revealed to have hidden pockets of soul and blues when considered from a fresh point of view by a versatile vocalist.


This show is a collaboration with The Crawley Blues Club

Welcome back - Ags is no stranger having played in East Grinstead on a few occasions before; he is currently touring the UK in support of the imminent release of his third album.

Ags is a traditional country singer-songwriter, who has built a reputation as an inspired songwriter. He is a constant presence on the touring circuit and has headlined shows both solo and with his band across the UK, Europe and the US.  His influences come essentially from the likes of David Allan Coe, Johnny Paycheck and Dale Watson. However, he also takes influences from the likes of Guy Clark, Loudon Wainwright III and Chris Knight. 

His second album, ‘Nothin’ Unexpected’, was released in February 2017. Its release led Country Music People magazine to declare him “the best singer-songwriter in the country field that this country has ever turned out” and John Godfrey from The Troubador Show to label it “the best country album to come out of the UK from the best ever UK country artist”.

The band's last visit to The Hawth was a sell out, so we are excited to welcome back to Crawley, Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters.


From North Carolina, the songs of Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters blend the band’s old-school country roots attitude with their shared influences of rock and folk.  Performing along with Amanda Anne, The Honeycutters are Matt Smith on pedal steel and Stratocaster, Rick Cooper on bass, Josh Milligan on drums and harmony vocals, and Evan Martin on keys and Telecaster.


Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters is the group’s third release on Organic Records, and fifth album.  Its thirteen tracks were recorded, mixed, and mastered by Scott Barnett at Crossroads Studios in Arden, North Carolina.  Amanda says of the album, “I think it’s just about life and all that that entails. Including but not limited to death, strangers, birthdays, money, leaving, arriving, seasons, corruption, and love.”
