MOWING CLUB PRESENTS: RICHMOND FONTAINE

Early Birds with €5 discount are sold out. You can buy tickets for the regular price here.Richmond Fontaine is pretty much the best that alt-country has to offer currently. The band is the brainchild of Willy Vlautin, a songwriter with an honest, warm voice - also called the 'Dylan of the derailed souls.' Since its founding in 1995, the band made thirteen (!) albums to and all the CDs are praised by many critics. Although the music of Richmond Fontaine represents multiple genres, the sound is best described as a blend of burly garagerock, country, Americana and folk. Cinematic AmericanaVlautin has an unique talent to tell stories with his songs ('cinematic Americana'), which is, in terms of depth, not inferior for literary work. This is not strange as Vlautin is also author of several books. At last released album, 'The High Country' (**** Nu.nl) he unites both crafts with great emotional effect. A must see for fans of the genre!
