Europe/UK Tour ~ Fall 2014

I am taking off Oct 8th for my Fall 2014 Europe/UK Tour.  I’ll begin with solo shows in The Netherlands, Norway, UK & Ireland over the next month and then meet up with my band from Nashville in Germany for a week of shows.  I am excited to have all of them with me for the first time (this will be my 10th tour across the Atlantic).  My good buddy and guitar player Dave Coleman will stay with me through the end of the tour.  And we’ll be home in time for Thanksgiving! :-)

Check back in with us regularly as I am updating show info and adding gigs still (it’s a long tour).  Also, if you see an open date when I’m in your area and want to inquire about a House Concert or a venue I may have missed feel free to reach out mail@stephensimmonsmusic.com

Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.  As always, hope to see you out.

HEARSAY: 7th full band studio album

Hearsay

“Simmons has made his share of scruffy-smart folk-country and roots-rock albums, steering his narratives into the Southern Gothic shadows, but his new album, Hearsay, is a quietly bold surprise. Suddenly, there are sentimental strains to his storytelling, suppleness to his phrasing and an elegant, loping fluency to the grooves. ”

 – Jewly Hight / Nashville Scene

LIVE AT TAKE ROOT released from Groningen, NL

Recorded live at the prestigious Take Root Festival in Groningen, The Netherlands on October 6th, 2007 on Simmons’ second European Tour. He is accompanied by Alex McCollough on pedal steel guitar.

Rounder Europe Records released Simmons’ SOMETHING IN BETWEEN album (released in USA in early 2008) to European audiences in the Fall of 2007 and this Festival Performance was part of that tour that took him from The Netherlands, to Belgium and The United Kingdom to promote it’s release. Rounder Europe had released DRINK RING JESUS in the Spring of 2007 as well as re-released Simmons’ LAST CALL (2004 USA release), thus the majority of the songs from this live show are from those first three Simmons’ albums (plus the then unreleased ‘Asheville Girl’ & “Hadley’s Bend’ that later appeared on studio albums GIRLS & THE BIG SHOW).

Simmons is accompanied by sideman, Alex McCollough on pedal steel guitar.
