Sligo Live presents John Paul White 25th October 2024 in the Hawk’s Well Theatre, Sligo. Tickets €29.50 + s.c. 
John Paul White is a four-time Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter and co-founder of Single Lock Records who proudly resides in Florence, Alabama.

With The Hurting KindJohn Paul White has crafted a stunning album that draws on the lush, orchestrated music made in Nashville in the early 1960s. Yet these songs retain a modern feel, whether he’s writing about overwhelming love, unraveling relationships, or fading memory of a loved one.

White lives in Florence, Alabama, not far from Muscle Shoals. He has cultivated a music career in Nashville for two decades, first as a songwriter, then half of The Civil Wars – a groundbreaking duo that won four Grammy Awards before disbanding in 2012.

Because The Civil Wars were so hard to categorize, White has earned a fanbase among indie rock listeners, folk audiences, Americana outlets and AAA radio. So, what will happen if people hear The Hurting Kind and call it country? “Well that doesn’t scare me in the least,” he says. “As a matter of fact, it kind of thrills me.”
Ashley Campbell and Thor Jensen form a unique meeting of musical genres as the duo Campbell Jensen. With Ashley coming from the world of country and Americana and Thor having a diverse background from rock to gypsy jazz, they create a fresh sound as a duo. Ashley Campbell, daughter of country legend Glen Campbell began her career playing in her father’s band on several world tours and has found success as a solo artist in the country music scene.
