Konzertanfrage an den KULTurSPEICHER;
Me and Rosie (the drummer from Whiskey & Women) have a band together called Penny Opry, and we play Maritime Americana music. We will be touring in Germany this August and would love to come and play at Kulturspeicher if you are interested in having us! The music is similar in energy to Whiskey & Women but with a focus on Maritime music.
Antwort von uns;
yes, we want you! You can come to us on 21.August 2018
We very happy, when you come back to us in this year. We were waiting for you
Ja, und nun kommen sie, von uns lang erwartet, am 21.8.18 wieder zu einem Konzert nach Ueckermünde.
Joan und Rosie , die wir von Whisky & Women kennen, haben sich zu der Band Penny Opry zusammen getan und spielen natürlich die von uns so geliebte Americana, wie wir sie von Whisky &Women kennen mit dem Focus auf maritimer Folkmusik
Hailing from the cold waters of San Francisco Bay, Penny Opry specializes in bringing old music back from the dead, with a sound designed to lift spirits and bring life to the party. Armed with a suitcase drum kit, ukuleles, and an antique button accordion, the group draws inspiration from maritime folk tradition, tin pan alley, and old-time drinking songs.
As two-thirds of the band Whiskey and Women, Penny Opry founders Joan Wilson Rueter and Rosie Steffy have covered extensive ground, appearing as a main stage festival act and on national radio across Europe and North America. Highlights include Paimpols’s Festival du Chant de Marin (FR), Brest International Maritime Festival (FR), Vegesack Festival Maritim (DE), and Festival du Chant de Marins de Saint-Jean-Port-Joli (CAN).
The duo’s latest musical incarnation, Penny Opry, extends further into the maritime music genre, exploring seafaring music from North America and the British Isles, as well as American roots music from the 1850s -1960s.
Penny Opry's debut album Alluvium is due out in summer 2018.
