The Shires


An award-winning duo is set to rock a Bristol music venue this month.

The Shires, with support from Andy Brown and Sinead Burgess, will lead the charge in the UK country music scene.

Singer-songwriters Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes offer up big tunes as they pay homage to a plethora of Nashville greats.

The pair will not be copying their idols however, but putting their own British twist on the already popular album.

The duo are the masterminds behind the fastest-selling UK country album in history, with all three of their albums getting to the top of the UK Country Chart.

They have won a number of awards for their work, including five British Country Music Associations.

The Shires will be at Colston Hall, in Colston Street, at 7pm on Wednesday.

Tickets, priced £25.26-36.01, are available from or at 01172 034040.
