Sharon Cort announces CD release, Country cafe

Sharon Cort, who has toured twice in Europe this year, will kick off the official release of her second release in ten years, the celebrated Country Café, on 15 November at 12th & Porter’s Lounge in Nashville, Tennessee. Performing along with Sharon are Aaron Till on fiddle, Ernie Sykes on bass, and Justin Clark on mandolin (all featured on the recordings), with the addition of Larry Perkins on banjo.

This is the first reunion of the band since Ernie Sykes moved to New York in 2007. Aaron Till and Justin Clark, celebrated musicians in their own right, are both featured on Jim Lauderdale’s Grammy-winning Bluegrass diaries, while Perkins contributed to the 'Down from the Mountain' tour as well as the PBS special 'The Carter Family - an American family experience'. The night will also feature Barbara Lamb, formerly of Asleep at the Wheel, performing solo from her own new CD release, Twisty girl.
