Long Tall Jefferson &
The Mastersons (USA)

Der Songwriter & Storyteller Long Tall Jefferson (Simon Borer) war die letzten zwei Jahre permanent auf Tour, hat in ganz Europa über 200 Shows gespielt und das Publikum mit doppelbödigen Geschichten über schlechte Tage, alte Freunde und unendliche Fussmärsche in seinen Bann gezogen. Er war Gast an grossen Festivals wie Moon & Stars, Blue Balls und dem Gurtenfestival und begeisterte das Publikum in Solothurn an der Kulturnacht 2017. Rechtzeitig zu seinem Auftritt an den «Acoustic Nights» wird im September sein neues Album «Lucky Guy» erscheinen.

Don’t bother asking The Mastersons where they’re from. Brooklyn, Austin, Los Angeles, Terlingua; they’ve called each home in just the last few years alone. If you really want to get to know this husband-and-wife duo, the better question to ask is where they’re going. Perhaps more than any other band playing today, The Mastersons live on the road, perpetually in motion and always creating. Movement is their muse. On tour, in the unpredictable adventures and characters they cross, in the endless blur of skylines and rest stops and dressing rooms and hotels, that’s where they find their greatest inspiration, where they hone their art, and where they crafted their brilliant new album, Transient Lullaby.
