      A Different Thread


      British/American duo, A Different Thread deliver an intoxicating amalgamation of Beatlesque folk rock meets Gillian Welch dark country. From the rolling hills of Staffordshire to the Appalachian Mountains, A Different Thread's original songs are inspired by the music that has crisscrossed the Atlantic Ocean over the generations in true folk fashion. Robert Jackson (from Lichfield, England) and Alicia Best (from Durham North Carolina, USA) first met two years ago while busking in Galway, Ireland. They didn't even know each others names, all they knew was that their voices fit together like missing pieces of the same puzzle. Their chance meeting sparked a musical journey across the UK, Europe, the US, and even to Guatemala and back; touring and living on the road while cultivating their own unique blend of country, blues and folk (or as they call it: British-Americana.)Their debut album 'On A Whim' (release date September 13th 2018, Cat's Cradle Carrboro NC) was recorded last May at Arbor Ridge Studios in Chapel Hill with producer Jeff Crawford (Mandolin Orange, Mipso, Josh Moore,) featuring local NC talent including Omar Ruiz-Lopez from Violet Bell and Rusty Smith who plays frequently with Four Tops and The Temptations, among others! Back in the states for their 'On A Whim Tour' they are gigging up and down the East Coast, (other NC shows include Isis Music Hall on the 3rd of October, The Kraken in Chapel Hill at Jonathan Byrd's Shake Sugaree Americana Residency on the 10th of October, and the Haw River Ballroom on the 13th of October for "Oktoberfest".)
