Dean Owens and the Southerners
2019 has been an exciting year for Leith’s Dean Owens – seeing him win UK Song of the Year (for the title track of his most recent, widely acclaimed album Southern Wind), and knock up over 20,000 miles on the road, on extensive US and UK tours. He’s delighted to be winding it up with what is becoming a traditional home town gig at the Traverse with the Soundhouse Organisation.
He’s even more delighted to be playing it with his new power trio, The Southerners – aka the formidable talents of award winning instrumentalist Tom Collison on keys and bass guitar (sometimes both at the same time) and guitar maestro Jim Maving on electric, delta slide and mandolin.
Dean’s music conjures the wild romanticism of the open road, distilling the Scottish and Americana into a unique blend of celtic spirit, country soul. The unfettered enthusiasm of a rock n roller coupled with the sympathetic delivery of folk’s storytellers.
Expect great music, songs, banter (not least from the home town audience) and some special guests.
