Second Line Music Presents
Red Tail Ring (USA)
Michigan-based, Red Tail Ring are Laurel Premo and Michael Beauchamp. Together they create intricate arrangements of original folk music and traditional ballads with banjo, fiddle, guitar, and lush harmonies.
"The very best of the 21st century's minimalist and highly original folk music . . . a peerless duo." - American Roots UK.
Fresh off their fourth full-length studio release 'Fall Away Blues', Laurel and Michael are re-imagining Americana music with pure soul. Featuring new songwriting fused with old-time and country blues themes, Red Tail Ring tackle topical issues such as gun violence and environmentalism, as well as the age-old themes of place and love.
Formed in 2009, they've performed their unique brand of acoustic roots all over the United States and throughout Canada, the UK and Europe including Denmark, Germany, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
"Red Tail Ring doesn't just pay homage to vintage folk and roots music… they breathe new life into it, channelling the power and charm of seminal material into its own original songs."- John Sinkevics, LocalSpins.
Nigel Wearne is a folk/country singer-songwriter, luthier, poet and gleaner. Equipped with personally handcrafted instruments, his music melds finger-style guitar, clawhammer banjo, folk and honest storytelling. Gleaning diverse influence from Kelly Joe Phelps, Townes Van Zandt and Sun Kil Moon, he tells stories of forgotten rebels, wandering poets and his love of eggs. Nigel’s current album 'Drawing Circles' is a solo record that’s raw, compelling and reflective. A storyteller at heart, he paints lyrical pictures with “the narrative-fuelled prose of Paul Kelly” - Beat Magazine. “One of Australia’s emerging songwriters” - Tone Deaf. “Warmth flecked with grit… beauty awaits” 4 Stars – Rolling Stone.
