Ashley McBryde announces headline Dublin show
Ashley Mcbryde will play the Academy on Tuesday, 1 October with tickets from €30 including booking fee on sale Friday, 8 March at 10 am from Ticketmaster.
Dubbed as one of Rolling Stone’s “Artists You Need To Know," citing her as "an Arkansas red-clay badass, with the swagger of Hank Jr. and the songwriting of Miranda Lambert," McBryde fearlessly lays it all on the line, and it's that honest all-in approach that has led to NPR critic Ann Powers to ask if McBryde could be "among the first post-Stapleton country stars?"
McBryde's album will showcase an artistic vision that will prove her to be one of the genre's keenest working storytellers, bringing unwavering honesty back into a pop-preoccupied genre.
McBryde was raised in Mammoth Spring, Arkansas. At three, she'd secretly pluck her father's guitar like an upright bass, and after about the 17th time being caught, her father bought her a guitar of her own. When she was twelve, she played her parents and grandparents her very first composition. It was at Arkansas State when, while a member of the marching band, McBryde finally started sharing her voice with others, and finally moved to Nashville in 2007 where steadily worked a circuit of dive bars, biker hangouts, and colourful joints fighting to have her songs heard.
The venue specifies a strict over 18 policy.
