29 Jul 2017
with Ags Connolly
While growing up in Setauket, New York, Seegers was drawn to the music his parents loved and sang: hard country music from Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Faron Young, Webb Pierce and many more. These influences are writ large in his own songwriting and in his intense, world-weary voice that has often drawn comparison to Williams. In this very special show, he will pay full tribute to the most influential country songwriter of all time singing his favourite Hank songs in his own inimitable style.
'his voice... a weathered instrument that sounds as robust as it does lived-in.... haunting' Wall Street Journal
Ags Connolly is a traditional country singer-songwriter from West Oxfordshire in the UK. A Southern Fried favourite, he proved his astounding debut record How About Now was no fluke with the release earlier this year of Nothin' Expected - also produced by Dean Owens and featuring a Scottish core band - to a fantastic reception.
'dare I suggest that Ags Connolly might be the best singer-songwriter in the country field that this country has ever turned out? Yes, I think I do, and I think he is... and this is a fabulous record' Country Music People
