Transatlantic Americana with hair-raising harmonies that tell heartfelt tales of life on the road

A Different Thread, the dynamic transatlantic band, is fronted by Robert Jackson from Lichfield, UK and Alicia Best from Durham, North Carolina. They are joined by double bassist, Mike Seal, for a show that promises a unique blend of folk, blues, and Americana that has garnered praise from fans and critics alike.

The story of A Different Thread began with a serendipitous meeting, busking on the streets of Galway, Ireland. Their impromptu harmonies sparked a creative partnership that has flourished over eight years of independent music-making and relentless touring.

Folk Radio UK lauded them as “warm, deep songwriters” with “a strong, independent sound,” a testament to their word-smithery, which delves into themes of change, counter culture, travel, and the parting ways and reuniting that comes with a life on the road.

Known for their hair-raising vocal harmonies, intricate guitar, soulful fiddle, playful harmonica, and Alicia’s distinctive suitcase drum-kit, the duo has forged a minimalist yet powerful sound that resonates deeply with listeners.
