We are delighted to announce the line up for the 2019 Showcase Festival .
For the first time we welcome guest hosts this year - the first to announce is CIMA Canadian Blast - they bring with them Madison Violet, Pretty Archie, Oh Susanna, Harrow Fair and Kaia Kater. second guest hosts are Thirty Tigers from Nashville TN, this label works closely with the UK and their artists tour here regularly and they have now signed these UK artists to their label, a truly exciting development for UK Americana - they bring John Oates, Asleep At The Wheel, John Smith, The Rails, Ida Mae and Wade Bowen. Our third and final guest host for 2019 is Big Indie from Austin TX, as Hackney is twinned with Texas this is particularly fitting - they bring over great US artists Willi Carlile, Dylan Earle, Arkansas Dave and Whiskey Shivers as well as showcasing UK Talent Foreign Affairs and House of Songs TX in the round with Graham Weber, Danni Nicholls, Robbie Cavanagh and Demi Mariner
