Truckstop Honeymoon in partnership with Cheshire Rural Touring Arts
Truck Stop Honeymoon return to the NW after their memorable last live high-energy performances of original songs with banjo, upright bass and guitar took audiences by storm.
This American duo, recently relocated to mid Wales, holler with all their hearts and live the life they sing about. They bring both great humour one minute and poignancy the next with a deft skill rarely seen in performers. Touring across three continents with a truckload of songs, Katie and Mike West tell stories about the strangeness of everyday life. Their music combines elements of bluegrass, music hall jazz, and straight up rock’n’roll. They have released nine albums and a full length documentary film, produced over 200 albums for other artists and received awards for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts. They are consummate and genuine performers as well as being brilliant songwriters and musicians (and lovely human beings).
“Truckstop Honeymoon work their way through an entertaining set flawlessly… the husband and wife duo have the crowd eating out of the palm of their hands.”
– Bring the Noise, UK
“The music of Truckstop Honeymoon tells a story that is sometimes ferociously funny, sometimes bitterly sad, but always affecting and believable”
