Cool Country Duo, The Shires, Will Support Tom Jones at Scarborough OAT

The Shires

English country pop duo The Shires will support Tom Jones at Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Wednesday 29 July.

The Shires, who are doing a great job to make country cool on this side of the Atlantic, aren't from Tennessee or Texas, they're from Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. The duo of Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes only got together in May 2013, but they’ve already taken the UK country music scene by storm.

In just two years, The Shires have signed a record deal with Decca Nashville, made their official live London debut at the Country 2 Country Festival at London’s 02 Arena, established themselves as a firm favourite with BBC Radio 2, performed at the home of country music itself, Nashville and become the first British country band to reach the Top 10 in the Official UK Album Chart, with their debut album 'Brave', released in March this year.

Both Ben and Crissie are self-declared admirers of the craftsmanship of country songwriting, but they’re as far from some twangy tribute act as you could get. Powered by Crissie's powerful but subtle and supple vocals and Ben’s perfectly complementary tones and acoustic guitar, The Shires have literally found a piece of country to call their own.

Limited tickets for the event are still available from (0844 844 0444).
