The Rails on Wednesday 23rd October 2019
Please note, this event has been cancelled.
The Rails are Kami Thompson (daughter of Richard and Linda) and James Walbourne (guitarist with The Pogues and The Pretenders) and hail from Kentish Town in North London. The duo got together in 2013 and were soon signed to Island Records legendary pink label. Their debut album ‘Fair Warning’ garnered 5/5 reviews in the music press and was voted the number one Folk Album for 2014 by Mojo. The following year the pair won the prestigious Horizon Award for best new artist at the BBC Radio Two Folk Awards.
In early 2017 the Rails travelled to Nashville to record their second album ‘Other People’ with producer Ray Kennedy. The album released in September the same year garnered more five star reviews in Uncut and The Times as Walbourne and Thompson embarked on tours of the UK and North America (where they opened for the Pretenders).
February 2019 saw The Rails back in the studio with a brand new label – Thirty Tigers – and a new producer – Stephen Street. The ensuing album ‘Cancel The Sun’ is released on August 16th 2019 and Michael Hann picks up the story……
