ISRAEL Nash brings his band over from Texas in August to play a handful of UK dates including Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) hot on the heels of the release of his acclaimed new album Lifted.

The genre bending rock ‘n’ roller will be live at PAC on Wednesday, August 28, 8pm playing meticulously crafted Americana roots songs, sprinkled with life meaning and multi-hued rock and psychedelia.

PAC director Janet Farmer said: “Israel Nash is a truly incredible musician to behold and we cannot wait for him to bring his unique style of music to PAC, especially as we are one of only a handful of venues he’ll be playing during his time in the UK, nicely sandwiched between two festivals.

“I saw Israel perform at SXSW earlier this year, performing a set at the legendary Continental Club, and he is a great audience pleaser, reminiscent of the early Neil Young, so I can’t wait for him to come to Pocklington.

“Whether you’re a rock fan, an Americana fan, or simply a live music fan I would urge you to experience this.”

His latest album, Lifted, has attracted rave critical acclaim with Allan Jones describing it as a “thing of wonder” in his 9/10 review in Uncut Magazine, and Andy Fyfe of Q Magazine awarded it four stars.
