A Different Thread
Lichfield UK / Durham, NC
A Different Thread’s original songs are inspired by the music that has crossed and crisscrossed the Atlantic Ocean over the generations in true folk fashion, from the rolling hills of Staffordshire to the Appalachian Mountains. Robert Jackson from Lichfield, England and Alicia Best from North Carolina, USA weave together elements of country, Piedmont blues, and bluegrass with traditional English folk, taking additional inspiration from the folk revival movement of the 70´s. Jackson´s mournful harmonica, stirring guitar, and distinctive voice blend with Best´s tight harmonies, impulsive fiddle licks, and the driving beat of her suitcase drum kit to create what they call ´British-Americana´.
