Ashington Town Council is pleased to be able to now announce a major coup in presenting AN EVENING WITH JOEY LANDRETH (the ‘Whiskey’ Tour) on Monday 24 July 2017, at the White House Social Club, right here in Ashington.
It's the only North of England date on Joey's solo ‘Whiskey’ UK tour and we’re delighted to have secured this gig and have it taking place in the town. A top-drawer night of great music lies ahead that should attract local and regional interest and we’re fully expecting to be posting the 'Sold Out' signs when the word gets out.
Supporting Joey on the evening will be Sunderland born singer and song-writer Paul Liddell.
Tickets priced at £10 (plus £1 booking fee) are now available online from We Got Tickets at the following direct link www.wegottickets.com/event/407812
Born and raised on the Canadian prairies, Joey Landreth grew up with a guitar in his hands. Working as a side man through his teens and early twenties Joey hit the road, playing music across genres from gospel to country. At twenty-five Joey joined forces with his older brother as they worked on their first independent project The Bros. Landreth.
The band was immediately successful, winning a Juno with their first album 'Let it Lie' among other awards across multiple genres. The band rose quickly to success turning the heads of musical heavy-weights such as Bonnie Raitt, John Oates and Jimmie Vaughan.
In 2016 Joey launched his solo career. And January 2017 saw the release of his EP/Album 'Whiskey'. With the rare ability to be at once vulnerable and open yet seriously blow audiences away with his musical proficiency, Joey’s career as an independent artist is expected to rise to great heights quickly.

The Town Council look forward to seeing you and welcoming you to this great night of music in Ashington as part of the town's 150th Anniversary celebrations...get your groove on!
