The Shires

Maybe it is something that comes with getting older, correct me if I am wrong, that country music becomes more interesting?
 
Although it's always been there I have only toyed with the music of Willie Nelson etc.
 
Lately we have been toying with George Strait and Zac Brown.  Some really decent stuff. Both have massive back catalogues but we have started with recent productions.
 
And we come to The Shires. A duo from Beds and Herts. Two shire counties to the north of London. They may have got their name from that basis?
 
That two English singers can write music that is accepted in the US and the heartlands of country is amazing.
 
They are on in Folkestone at the Leas Cliff Hall at the end of April and we are going to be there.
 
Looking forward to it
