Event description

Description

Worry Dolls are a tenacious female duo born out of the joint talents of Zoe Nicol and Rosie Jones, who met in Liverpool when they were 18, both on their chosen path of becoming solo singer songwriters, and both falling under the spell of ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’. Rosie joined Zoe’s band as a mandolin player and backing vocalist and their great chemistry and love of harmony led to them starting a contemporary bluegrass band playing Nickel Creek, Alison Krauss & Gillian Welch songs together. Paired by their teachers for an opportunity to have their songwriting critiqued by Paul McCartney, they were inspired to start co-writing, and could now be described as an almost telepathically linked songwriting force.

The pair were drawn to London, where they spent the best part of a year sleeping on couches, obsessively co-writing and performing, and all the while developing a burgeoning cult following. Worry Dolls harnessed this period of transition and channelled it into two EPs, with their second release “Burden” evidencing a sound that was beginning to shed its starry-eyed innocence, and give way to a more acerbic and mature artistic voice.

‘Bless Your Heart’ is the first single taken from their 2017 debut album, co-written with Wild Ponies. It was the first song they wrote in Nashville. They’d been in town for a couple of days and were picking up the southern slang, including “Bless Your Heart” – which they were told can be used to point out to someone that they are being a complete idiot. The highly anticipated debut album “Get Gone” was released Through Bread and Butter Records in early 2017.

Worry Dolls tour throughout February, March and April 2017 promoting their album, with some incredible showcases already completed at the AMA’s Moth Club Showcase and London Fashion week with Vogue. Following this the band will be appearing at some of the UK’s best festivals, including an inciting to the prestigious Country 2 Country.

Special guests for this show & hot on the heels of a sold out headline performance at The Norwich Arts Centre will be Norwich based Morganway who will be playing a very special ' stripped back & intimate ' set. This will be the only time you will be able to catch the band live in Norwich before they release their debut album early in 2018.


Opening the show will be Lisa Redford who along with both the Worry Dolls and Morganway has recevied both support and praise from Bob Harris and we are delighted to welcome her to open for this very special event.
