We’re pleased to announce that BBC Radio 2 favourites, and Bedford’s very own The Shires will be headlining Bedford Corn Exchange for us on Monday 27th April.

The Shires, who formed in 2013, are a UK country pop duo composed of singer-songwriters Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes. They hail from Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. Ben sings vocals and plays guitar and Bedford native Crissie Rhodes shares lead vocals. The duo fittingly took the band name in order to maintain an English identity and take a small part of England back to America. “Shire” is the original term for what is usually known now as a English county.

After playing hardly half a dozen shows together The Shires caught the attention of Decca Records who signed them in the UK and they secured a contract with American based record label Universal Music Group Nashville thus becoming the first ever UK country act to be signed to a major Nashville label.

The duo have recently been A-Listed on BBC radio 2, appeared on The One Show, and sold out many of their tour dates in just a few days, so don’t miss out on picking up tickets from: http://www.seetickets.com/event/the-shires/bedford-corn-exchange/851663 or from www.bedfordcornexchange.co.uk

Doors open 7.30pm
