Country music duo My Darling Clementine will be performing their songs of betrayal, revenge and guilt when they come to Telford’s Warehouse in Chester on Tuesday (October 28).
Following in the grand tradition of classic country duets by the likes of George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and Porter Waggoner, Johnny and June Cash and many more Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish have picked up their mantle under the guide of My Darling Clementine.
Michael Weston King, former leader of UK Alt Country pioneers The Good Sons, is widely seen as one of Britain’s finest singer-songwriters.
He has made 10 solo albums and four with The Good Sons. Always on the road, both solo and touring with the likes of Nick Cave, John Cale, Steve Earle, Roger McGuinn, his collaborations have included Chris Hillman, Ron Sexsmith, Jackie Leven and the legendary Townes Van Zandt.
Lou Dalgleish has been praised by, and worked with, the likes of Elvis Costello, Bryan Ferry, The Brodsky Quartet, and many more.
From 1993 – 2000 she released four albums (including the acclaimed Live at Ronnie Scotts) that showed off her unique songwriting, her stunning vocals and unique interpretation of other works.
King and Dalgleish are no strangers to successful, independent music careers but after 10 years of marriage, the two turned their attention towards a joint project.
The result was How Do You Plead?, an album that took the country/Americana world by storm. Produced by Neil Brockbank and featuring the cream of British players it garnered critical acclaim. The debut single,100,000 Words, became a BBC Radio 2 hit, and the band and album went on to win awards on both sides of the Atlantic.
After a year of touring the UK, America, Canada and Scandinavia, My Darling Clementine released their second album, The Reconciliation, recorded at the renowned Sheffield studio, Yellow Arch and produced by Colin Elliot.
