This November The Borderline welcomes The London Folk & Roots Festival with a co-headline show from Americana duo The Grahams and singer-songwriter Ruarri Joseph.
As a band that draws tremendous inspiration from America’s railroads, it’s only natural for Americana group, The Grahams, to come this side of the Atlantic, where the railway always plays such a strong role. Following the release of their anticipated sophomore album ‘Glory Bound’, due May 19th 2015, The Grahams will be taking to the stage here at The Borderline this November.
Lifelong couple (both romantic and musical), Alyssa and Doug Graham, have been performing together since they were teenagers. The release of their acclaimed debut ‘Riverman’s Daughter’ in 2013 saw them fully commit to life as a musical duo. Following the album’s release, they played over 100 shows throughout 2014.
While recording ‘Riverman’s Daughter’, The Grahams traveled the Mississippi-hugging Great River Road, winding up on a houseboat in the Louisiana swamp where their songs of the river came together. A similar process went into the writing of their new album, except this time, instead of following the lazy river, The Grahams rode streamlined rails, jumping aboard almost all the Amtrak cars.
