aaamusic | On 06, Sep 2011
Following the September 26th release of Beth Harts Dont Explain album – a soul covers collaboration with guitarist Joe Bonamassa shell perform two intimate UK concerts in November. The first date will be The Flowerpot, Derby on Monday 28th November, followed by London Dingwalls on Tuesday 29th November. Tickets for both concerts are available from 0845 413 4444, www.seetickets.com, www.ticketline.com and www.alt-tickets.co.uk. Further press information for Beths UK concerts is available here.
Already a platinum selling solo artist across mainland Europe, Beths collaboration with Bonamassa on the Gil Scott-Heron classic, Ill Take Care Of You, was recently BBC Radio 2s Record of the Week and has since been added to the playlist; the Dont Explain album also recently reached #5 on the Amazon UK pre-order chart.
Compared vocally to the likes of Janis Joplin and Etta James, Beth Harts November UK concerts will showcase tracks from the new album, including a brilliant rendition of Tom Waits Chocolate Jesus, as well as songs from her back catalogue such as the emotionally moving LA Song.
Produced by Kevin Shirley (John Hiatt, The Black Crowes, Black Country Communion), Don’t Explain combines Hart’s raspy and soulful vocals against Bonamassa’s signature guitar sound. The pair collaborate on a stunning collection of hand-picked soul classics from the likes of Delaney & Bonnie, Billie Holiday, and Aretha Franklin.
