DON GALLARDO at The Golden Lion Thu 20 July 2017 from 07:30 pm



The Golden Lion, Black Cat Promotions and Clubhouse Records are proud to welcome back three of their most treasured acts.
Don Gallardo - Nashville, Tennessee
Rachel Laven - San Antonio, Texas
The Rosellys - Bristol. UK

Don Gallardo was raised in a small town in Northern California, where he spent years building his songwriting career on the west coast before relocating to Nashville in 2008. Now based in Nashville, Tennessee, he walks the line between folk, Americana and roots-rock, mining the influence of classic 1970s singer-songwriters while creating a sound that nods to the past while still pushing ahead toward something new. Don brings with him two of the finest menin the business Travis Stock on bass and Thomas Collison on keys. Drew Bridges will guest on drums.

Rachel Laven is a young yet seasoned singer songwriter with 15 years of professional stage experience. This Texas native is known for turning eyes and ears with her electric vocals and her provocative songwriting. She has performed nationally and internationally at festivals, theatres, house concerts, and small venues alike. Rachel has a new album out, Love & Luccheses, an 11 song Texas Country album, encapturing the last four years of her love life. Make no mistake, however, this album takes on more than romance and heartbreak. The album takes on that new country twang with inspiration from Kacey Musgraves, Jason Isbell, and Chris Stapleton. Songs from this album helped her to win the 2016 NewFolk Songwriting Competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival.

"The Rosellys are a 5-piece band who make no apology for their love of Americana. Musically, they blend English accents with lyrical references to both the UK and US alongside well pitched bass, feisty drum beats and stunning pedal steel and fiddle to create a sound that walks the fine line between Celtic folk and Americana"
