We’re very excited to announce a unique duo tour coming up, featuring two exceptional roots music artists from the USA. We have been enjoying the music of Jordan Tice and Liv Greene for several years now, and had the great idea to bring these two Nashville-based artists together for a collaborative UK tour in July this year.
Jordan Tice is a guitarist, singer and songwriter celebrated for his exceptional mastery of both fingerstyle and flatpicking guitar styles and a wide range of acoustic genres. Probably best known as a member of acclaimed folk-bluegrass supergroup Hawktail, his stellar musicianship is complemented by witty, well-crafted songs. Jordan’s solo performances have been compared to those of legendary artists like John Hartford and David Bromberg, for their mix of virtuosity and playfulness. His fifth album, 2020’s Motivational Speakeasy, was produced by Kenneth Pattengale of the Milk Carton Kids and garnered rave reviews. The follow-up, his 2021 EP Yesteryears, features five original instrumentals that show off Jordan’s phenomenal skill, and range of styles from folk to blues and jazz. He is also an in-demand sideman, and in addition to his regular band and solo projects, has worked with celebrated artists including Dave Rawlings, Yola and banjo/comedy legend Steve Martin.
Born in Washington DC, Liv Greene is an award-winning young songwriter and performer now based in Nashville, Tennessee. Her 2020 debut album Every Bright Penny is packed with dreamy, evocative songs that feature Liv’s gorgeous, distinctive voice front and centre, and her second album is due to be released in 2023. Liv took up guitar and songwriting at a young age and discovered Americana, bluegrass and old-time music in her teens, particularly inspired by attending Miles of Music camp. She attended Interlochen Arts Academy and the New England Conservatory in Boston, regularly teaches songwriting workshops via the legendary Club Passim venue and music school in Boston, and already has a clutch of songwriting awards to her credit. Liv won the Kerrville Folk Festival’s 2019 New Folk Competition and was a showcase artist at Folk Alliance International 2021. I’ve been keen to bring Liv to the UK ever since I first heard her exceptional music several years ago, and she featured in our Streaming Across the Sea online festival last year. A mesmerising and very special artist.
