Date: Saturday, 05 June 2021 19:00 - 22:30

What a lovely chap! we had the pleasure of meeting with Josh in September 2020 and showing him round our building for a bit of show planning and sound testing... We are now excited to announce that his new Tour Date at The Grand Pavilion will be 5th June 2021.

Derby born, and now living in Nashville - Tennessee, Josh O'Keefe is visiting Matlock Bath as part of his coveted 2020 UK Tour!

A rebel artist, a protest singer, the heir to Bob Dylan, or – when he's doing one of his lighter satirical numbers – a harmonica-tootin' Mr. Bean… with raw, topical storytelling and a voice that crackles with authentic folk tradition, Okeefe is all of those and more. 

Having just launched his Debut Album: Bloomin' Josh will be back in the UK this year, and has chosen to return to his roots between his London and Edinburgh gigs, and visit us here at The Grand Pavilion, Matlock Bath, in support of our Restoration Project. Here he is testing out the acoustics of our main hall with his song 'Soldier': https://youtu.be/UBMXY1JAyWg 

Details:

NEW Date: Saturday 5th June 2021

Times: Doors open 6.30pm for 7pm start.

Tickets: ONLY £10!!! Coming soon - Watch this space!

More about Josh:

In 2012, Derby (England) native and folk-singer Josh Okeefe dropped out of school, travelled across the Atlantic and arrived in Nashville, TN in search of the places his idols Hank Williams and Johnny Cash once graced. He became a regular in the rock and roll clubs on the east side and the legendary honky-tonks on Lower Broadway; met a host of other musicians and began writing songs at an astonishing pace.

Over a couple of nights in his 350 sq. ft Tennessee log cabin Okeefe recorded his critically acclaimed self-titled debut album with just a borrowed RCA Microphone from the 1960’s that vibrated its diaphragm and carbon to the to the voices of Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Guy Clark, and other towering specters of country music. and an Ampex 2-track Tape Machine which Okeefe purchased from JJ Cale’s estate for $100.

Catapulting himself into the spotlight Josh Okeefe has already performed with the likes of Alison Krauss and Jamey Johnson, earned headline festival spots and BBC Radio apperances, sang for the people at national and local protests and had his songs recorded by major label artists like Ashley Monroe and High Valley to name a few and this is just the start...

Praise for Josh:

"He seems to turn a lightbulb on in your head, makes you ask yourself questions and seems to say what is on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Is he the next commentator for this generation? Only time will tell." - Huffington Post

"Okeefe’s voice hits you with the force of a hurricane: a rare, powerful, gravelly sound, the likes of which is usually crafted from many decades of nicotine, alcohol and hard living in the deep south." - No Depression

He is an outlaw and he is commercial. He is topical and he is light. He is a poet, a musician, a writer, and maybe a prophet. - Smithsonian Folkways
