Touring in 2020 – Eilen Jewell and Cedric Burnside

The queen of the minor key and the sound of hill country blues are coming to Sydney

Superb Americana singer-songwriter Eilen Jewell and her band will be back in March 2020 in support of her latest album Gypsy.

The reigning Queen of the Minor Key, Jewell leads a tight quartet that blends influences of surf-noir, early blues, classic country, folk, and 1960s era rock ’n’ roll. For well over a decade, they’ve toured relentlessly for legions of fans from Boston to Boise and Madrid to Melbourne, playing large festivals, theatres, rock clubs, and coffeehouses and have shared stages with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Loretta Lynn, Mavis Staples, Wanda Jackson, George Jones, Emmylou Harris, and Blind Boys of Alabama.

Who: Eilen Jewell and her Band

Where: Factory Theatre, 105 Victoria Rd, Marrickville

The Sound of Hill Country Blues

Love Police are also delighted to announce Cedric Burnside will return to Sydney also in March 2020.

The Grammy-nominated 39-year-old still lives on several acres not far from the Holly Springs, Mississippi, home where he was raised by “Big Daddy,” his grandfather, the late singer/songwriter/guitarist R.L. Burnside whom Cedric famously played with, just as his own father, drummer Calvin Jackson, did. Cedric was literally born to the blues, more specifically, the “rhythmically unorthodox” Hill country variant which emerged from Mississippi, where he grew up surrounded (and influenced) by Junior Kimbrough, Jessie May Hemphill and Otha Turner, as well as delta musicians T-Model Ford and Paul “Wine” Jones.

Who: Cedric Burnside

Where: Bridge Hotel, 119 Victoria Rd, Rozelle

When: Wednesday, 4 March 2020
