English/American duo, A Different Thread deliver a bluesy blend of Beatlesque folk rock meets Gillian Welch dark country. Alicia Best (of Durham, NC) and Robert Jackson (of Lichfield, UK) were both traveling songwriters in their own right when they met busking in Ireland in 2016. Joining forces they have been on the road together ever since. Their original songs are inspired by the music that has crisscrossed the Atlantic over the generations, in true folk fashion.

A Different Thread appearing at this event

British / American duo A Different Thread delivers an intoxicating amalgamation of Beatlesque folk rock meets Gillian Welch dark country. From the rolling hills of Staffordshire to the Appalachian Mountains, A Different Thread’s original songs are inspired by the music that has crisscrossed the Atlantic Ocean over the generations in true folk fashion. Robert Jackson (from Staffordshire, England) and Alicia Best (from North Carolina, USA) first sang together while busking in Galway, Ireland. They didn't know each other's names, all they knew was that their voices fit together like missing pieces of the same puzzle. Their chance meeting sparked a musical journey across the UK, Europe, the US and even to Guatemala and back; touring and living on the road while cultivating their own 'eclectic yet seamless hybrid of folk, country, and blues' (Penny Black Music) or as they call it: British-Americana.
