The Amy Black Band will be sharing a special co-bill with Girls Guns and Glory on June 2 at The Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River, MA. The Narrows is fast becoming "The" American Roots music venue in New England as it continues to host some of the best talent in the format. June 2nd will be no different as Alt-Country rockers Girls Guns and Glory team up with the Amy Black Band for an evening of incredible music. Amy Black has risen to the top of the American Roots music world since her 2011 release One Time, leading the Boston singer to nab opening slots for Chris Isaak, Rodney Crowell, The Courtyard Houds and Joe Ely among others. Her performance on Nashville's Music City Roots program and subsequent gig at The Basement garnered critical acclaim from the Nashville press; no easy feat for a newcomer. Girls Guns and Glory are already staples at Americana radio following the debut of Inverted Valentine in 2010 and their latest album Sweet Nothings in 2012. Ward Hayden, lead singer and front-man for GGG is one of the top vocal performers and songwriters on the entire American Roots music circuit. The band is currently in studio with Eric 'Roscoe' Ambel in NYC. This promises to be a show to remember with two top-shelf performers sharing a stage for the first time. As a promotional effort the two singers have released a video of the classic "After the Fire is Gone," made famous by Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty. It's our Video Pick of the Week and this show is our Must See Show for the Summer...so far!
