3Arena, Dublin: Saturday 10th March, 2018. Click here to view available tickets.
Margo Price & Midland set to play the RTÉ RADIO 1 STAGE this Saturday, 10th March at 3Arena Dublin.
One of the finest new voices to emerge from the U.S.A., Margo Price was the first country signing to Third Man. Her critically acclaimed debut album chronicles her life to date and pulls no punches as she sings about very real hardships and heartaches – the loss of her family’s farm, the death of her child, drinking and brushes with the law on this deeply moving collection of ten original tracks. Her voice has that alluring mix of vulnerability and resilience that was once the province of Loretta and Dolly. It is a tour-de-force performance that is vivid, deeply moving and all true.
Originally formed in Dripping Springs, Texas, Lead vocalist Mark Wystrach fronts Midland’s rich sound, rounded out by lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy. Rooted in tradition both in sound and style, the band initially garnered attention playing clubs in the Texas region. Their self-titled debut EP features five tracks, boasting songwriting credits from each member. Midland intentionally nods to the wild west with Country music that is reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s with a modern-day twist. They’ve opened for idols Dwight Yoakam and Willie Nelson and their debut album On The Rocks was released to great acclaim in September 2017.
