Following the release of their highly anticipated debut collaborative album ‘Not Dark Yet’, sisters Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer have announced their first ever UK/Eire dates together for January 2018, where they will be joined by Teddy Thompson who produced the album.
‘Not Dark Yet’ was recorded in Los Angeles in the summer of 2016 and features a selection of covers ranging from Nick Drake to Kurt Cobain; Shelby and Allison wrap their arms around the past, plant their feet in the present, and nod toward what’s around the bend with a co-written “Is It Too Much,” to close out the ten-song set.
Despite growing up together in the woods of rural Alabama, sisters Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer have pursued separate musical paths, garnering a Grammy, an Oscar nod, and many other awards and nominations along the way. They have collectively released twenty-four albums, but never one together until now. Not Dark Yet is not a duet record. It is no ordinary collaboration. It is not a creation, but rather a celebration of something that has always been, two voices becoming one and finding home within each other.
TEDDY THOMPSON – will accompany the sisters on tour ex Dublin and play his own set.
