IAN FISHER will perform what Rolling Stone magazine calls “half Americana and half Abbey Road-worthy pop” with his six-piece band (Camillo Jenny on drums, Rich Case on pedal steel guitar, Ema Krimpelstätter on electric guitar, Lukas Pamminger on bass, and Danny Rico on keys) outside at the Knust on May 28th with Stefan Honig’s new solo project, Accidental Bird, as support and before Billy Bragg plays inside!
It’s been more than a decade since Ian Fisher left his home state of Missouri and moved to Europe, forever changing his life and his music. With songs that combine an international lyrical perspective and a world-traveler’s musical influences with Americana roots, Fisher has remained on the road ever since emigrating, penning over one and a half thousand songs while also playing hundreds of concerts around Europe, North America, and Africa. With his newest album, American Standards, “Fisher taps into a sound that is at once moving and different” (Glide Magazine), further braking the mold of the singer-songwriter with a collection of socially-conscious and diverse songs that veer between acoustic, stripped-down arrangements and full-band performances. Americana Highways writes, ”What’s instantly noticeable with Ian Fisher is how he manages to shuffle the gold pan of his natural Missouri Americana nuggets with his now expatriate Euro-pop morsels to produce a Euro-Americana hybrid showcase.” Like the artist himself, Fisher’s music resonates far beyond the borders of genres and countries.
Accidental Bird ist das aktuelle Projekt von Singer/Songwriter Stefan Honig (HONIG).
Nach dem Ende der Band HONIG war zunächst gar nicht klar ob und wie es weitergeht doch dann kamen die Songs wie von alleine und da muß man sich ja dann auch nicht gegen wehren. Neue Songs entstanden ohne Plan eine neue Band zu gründen. Ohne Druck in jeglicher Form. Einfach aus Spaß am Musik machen. Und schon wieder Blut geleckt. Das Album zum Projekt kommt in 2022
Das Konzeret wird präsentiert von Bedroom Disco
