Nashville Meets London has teamed with London’s Royal Albert Hall for a virtual concert set for July 18, 2020 at 1:30 p.m. CT, as part of the venue’s recently-launched livestream series Royal Albert Home.
The Cadillac Three, Michael Ray, Tenille Townes and Yorkshire native Twinnie are all set to take part in the free event, which will be hosted by Country Hits Radio, as well as Mainly Music radio presenter Matt Spracklen.
The show aims to raise funds for the Royal Albert Hall, which is closed for the first time since World War II. Like all arts venues across the UK, the Hall is in financial crisis as a result of the pandemic. Since closing its doors on March 17, its online concerts – featuring artists including Rufus Wainwright, KT Tunstall, Richard Thompson and Ayanna Witter-Johnson – have been streamed more than a million times, inspiring donations totaling over £50,000.
Lucy Noble, Artistic Director of the Royal Albert Hall, said, “This series has spotlighted an incredible collection of world class talents working in an extraordinary array of genres. Since we launched on 9 April, we’ve featured everything from Baxter Dury to Bach cello suites, from spoken word to homegrown soul. Now we’re absolutely delighted to announce the first country music concert as part of Royal Albert Home, showcasing four fantastic acts who’ll bring a little bit of Nashville into your living room. The line-up illustrates just how exciting and eclectic the world of country is right now, and we can’t wait to share this show with you.”
