Rochester Cathedral’s organ gets the night off on Bank Holiday Monday when one of Canada’s top country music bands plays instead.
The Abrams, who are also brothers, have been performing together for 18 years.
After performing at the cathedral back in 2017 - to a packed house - they are set to return with their latest tour, Sounds Good To Me. The cathedral will also be the last venue of the tour.
The Abrams’ debut single, Fine, charted in the Top 40 on US Country Radio.
They are also among the youngest performers to play the world-famous Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, and legendary American folk singer Arlo Guthrie described them as “way too young to be playing that good.”
Rev Philip Hesketh, Dean of Rochester, said he was delighted that the brothers wanted to make a return as their energetic combination of bluegrass, country and folk/pop-rock music proved popular last time.
“The Abrams are an exceptionally talented group of musicians.
“Their music has an energy about it that makes you start tapping your feet and dancing – they are definitely not to be missed and the last time they came the nave was hopping.”
They will be supported by local singer-songwriters Jonica Love and Rachel Lowrie.
You can buy tickets at £18, or £12 for under 18s and students, online or from the Rochester Cathedral shop. Doors open for the show on Bank Holiday Monday at 6.45pm. To book tickets visit rochestercathedral.org
