THE LONG RYDERS kommer tillbaka till FOLK Å ROCK måndag den 15:e april! På sin comebackturné i maj 2016 gjorde The Long Ryders en enda Skandinavien-spelning via en specialinflygning, och det var här på Folk å Rock! Tokutsåld succé och ett perfekt sätt att återanknyta till bandet som på 80-talet var upphovet till det som senare kallades Alt-Country, dvs byggde bron mellan The Byrds, Gram Parsons Flying Burrito Brothers till Wilco & Jayhawks. Nu får vi återigen höra det bästa från den tidigare låtkatalogen, men The Long Ryders har nu även rykande färska och hajpade comeback-albumet ”Psychedelic Country Soul” med sig i bagaget!

Måndag 15:e april. Öppnar 19, På scen 20. Entré 250kr. Förköp online via Fysiska biljetter hos Folk å Rock, Musik & Konst och Skivesset. Countryrock-klubb, bar & restaurang.

A SHORT Biography of The Long Ryders – An American Band
The Long Ryders were and are the founders of Alt-country, a musical genre which did not exist before they burned so brightly in the eighties, and are a key link in the Americana chain, uniting Gram Parsons’ Flying Burrito Bros with Wilco and the Jayhawks. And fortunately for us all the Long Ryders saddle up again on February 19, 2019 when their first album in three decades is released, Psychedelic Country Soul, with a tour to follow.

Back in the day their indie LP Native Sons was the Number One alternative/College radio album in the USA, and the held the Number Two spot on the UK’s indie charts. Their next album was State Of Our Union, featuring the classic single, Looking For Lewis & Clark. Exhausted after four years of solid road work 1987 saw the Long Ryders release their swan song, Two Fisted Tales, to great acclaim but the band was history by Christmas.

2019 will see the Long Ryders hit the road in support of Psychedelic Country Soul and the world will once again know the power of an electric 12-string guitar when matched by a punk energy. There is nothing like the Long Ryders live, not back then, and not now. Go see them for the ride of your life. Saddle up and hang on tight.
