The first of two nights at The Globe featuring the Tony Bengtsson Band and supporting artists.
Tony Bengtsson ‘Socially conscious modern country folk’
North East-based Americana/Folk artist Tony Bengtsson’s hook-laden songs are ‘remarkable to say the least’ (Maverick Magazine) and his voice has been described as ‘the best for country outside of America’ (Dan Walsh – premier UK banjo player).
Tony’s solo albums Snake in the Woodpile and West Elizabeth received 4-star reviews in Maverick and Rock and Reel magazines.
Bengtsson started writing in 2004 after swapping his drumsticks for a guitar. His writing takes you on a journey through his diary, drawing on relationship experiences, the death of his father, and more recently his political activism in songs like ‘This Little Country’ and ‘Count Me In’. Whatever the theme, the ethos of authenticity remains. The honest heartfelt message can be heard in all of his songs.
‘Snake in the Woodpile should act as a benchmark for what this incredibly talented artist has to offer’ – Maverick
‘With the quality of stuff on [Snake in the Woodpile] it shouldn’t be long before he’s making a name for himself on the international stage’ – Rock ‘n’ Reel
‘The chance to let rip and to show the world what an awesome talent he really is’ – Maverick
The band brings the skills of four versatile, vastly experienced musicians to bear on Tony’s exceptional song-writing and vocals. Chiming Telecaster, driving piano, soaring fiddle and a rhythm section firmly in the pocket are all overlaid with timeless melodies.
