In addition to the festival itself, Halfway to Seventy-Five hosts individual shows in and around Oxford, based on our mission to celebrate Americana, roots and good honest music.
Our autumn shows take in the full breadth of American popular music – encompassing country, blues, American folk and gospel, and even a little jazz. First up is Luke Winslow-King, who comes to Oxford to showcase the incredible slide guitar and excellent blues & jazz styled songwriting that has made him one of the most talked about of traditionalists on the scene today.
In October, singer-songwriter Anthony D’Amato joins us as part of an intimate series of shows which bring his songs to the fore. And some songs they are too – according to NPR, “D’Amato sings and writes in the tradition of Bruce Springsteen or Josh Ritter”.
For our final autumn show, we welcome back honky-tonk hero and all-round good guy JP Harris as he returns to Oxford to showcase his brand new album ‘Sometimes Dogs Bark at Nothing’. Expect a night of classic country at its very, very best.
