The internationally acclaimed folk artist, Joe Purdy is pleased to announce a headline Belfast show at Voodoo on Saturday 18th April 2020. Joe has released fourteen albums since leaving his home state of Arkansas. His songs have turned up on numerous TV shows and film soundtracks.
In recent years, the self-described “hillbilly” has come to see the world and his role in it somewhat differently. His views chart the direction on his most recent album, “Who Will Be Next?” which is deeply rooted in the tradition of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and others as a searing commentary of our turbulent times. Purdy’s determination to honour the giants of American Folk music while applying his formidable skills as a storyteller reveals Joe as a compassionate observer and participant in our times.
The indie film, “American Folk,” marked Joe’s first foray into acting. The film garnered several awards including a Best New Film award at the Cleveland International Film Festival.
Purdy’s new album will be released in the Spring of 2020.
