River Town: Bristol’s Americana Festival 2017 Photos

Back for a third year, and under a brand new name, River Town brought the best of blues, country and soul to Bristol from artists across the pond and closer to home.

With packed houses at both The Lantern at Colston Hall and over the road in the O2 Academy, we witnessed fantastic performances from Mavis Staples, The Shires, Ward Thomas, UK greats, Paul Carrack, Nick Lowe and Andy Fairweather Low, local legend Yola Carter as well as countless other inspirational musicians.

Here are a few photos from our weekend of Americana.
