Tipped by NPR, Stereogum, No Depression and more as ‘one to watch’, the Bristol Americana songwriter won the UK Americana Music Association (AMA UK) vote as UK Artist of the Year 2017 and has now announced a run of festivals in the summer following her recent headline tour.

Following a year that saw the release of her debut solo EP ‘Orphan Offering’; acclaimed live performances in London and Nashville and in between; and worldwide coverage in publications like The Guardian, NPR, The Times and No Depression, British country-soul singer and songwriter Yola Carter has announced a run of UK & European festival dates over the coming months:

8th April 2017 – Ramblin’ Roots Revue, High Wycombe UK

21st July 2017 – Underneath the Stars, Barnsley UK

24th – 27th August 2017 – Tønder Festival, Denmark

Carter was named ‘UK Artist of the Year’ in the UK Americana Music Association (AMA UK) Awards in February, and was presented with her award by Al Booth, Editor of Specialist Music at BBC Radio 2. She also performed twice at the prestigious award ceremony in London, opening the night and later as part of a finale singing ‘Will The Circle Be Unbroken’ alongside all the evening’s performers and nominees. In her own words: “We did it! This might be a solo project but it has taken a team to get things done. I’ll be heading back into the Studio to record from next week so keep an eye out new recordings and clips in the spring!”
