Last Show: Thursday 28 th March 2024

PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

Nashville Meets London presents are delighted to welcome back Robbie and his band to record a ‘live’ album. Fresh from his success at Folk Alliance International in Kansas, Robbie is a self-confessed devotee of 'real music'. Robbie Cavanagh is not defined by genres. The only rules are good musicians, real instruments, great microphones and performance with emotion. Capturing sound, not producing it. Robbie performs self-penned, unscrubbed tales of heartbreak, loss, love and discovery, and when he puts pen to paper, he lives by his own words. 'The more you wrestle with an idea, the more contrived it becomes'. Robbie writes with honesty, emotion, and most importantly; instinct.

“One of my absolute favourite UK grassroots artists”

Bob Harris

Robbie and his band have made their way onto many UK festival stages including Black Deer, Maverick, The British Country Music Festival, BlueDot, Cornbury, Wilderness, Buckle and Boots, and Silverstone Woodlands, and have performed prolifically around the UK, Europe and USA alongside such artists as Jarrod Dickenson, Aaron Lee Tasjan, The Deslondes, The Wandering Hearts, Beth Nielson Chapman, Mary Gauthier, Jaimee Harris, Robert Vincent, James House, Ferris & Silvester, Wildwood Kin, Max Jury, Whitney Rose, Amelia White, Us The Duo, Jace Everett.

2023 saw Robbie release his much anticipated third record ‘Tough Love’. Recorded live at Studiowz in Pembrokeshire alongside his backing band: Thomas Dibb, Dan Wiebe, Roberto Ruiz, Joe Harvey Whyte and Abby Gundersen, ‘Tough Love’ is a departure from the last record ‘To Leave/To Be Left’ as the cries for help and desperation are exchanged for a much more independent attitude. Cavanagh sees the record as a letter to himself With lyrics such as ‘If you’re thinking of leaving, get up and go’ and ’Tough love, get over yourself, it doesn’t have to be you’. Even more appropriate having suffered a significant break up halfway through the recording process.  One not to miss!
