Sturgill Simpson

Formerly the leader of Sunday Valley, an energetic roots outfit that made some waves in the early years of the new millennium, Sturgill Simpson gained greater renown as a solo artist, initially thanks to his 2013 solo debut, High Top Mountain. An outlaw country record in form and feel -- its debt to Waylon Jennings clear and unashamed -- High Top Mountain became a word-of-mouth hit in 2013, thereby establishing Simpson's country credentials and opening the door to a wider future. In 2018, Simpson dabbled in acting, and film was an essential component of his lastest project, Sound & Fury. A noisy excursion into sci-fi rock & roll, the album was accompanied by an anime film upon its release.

Before the concert you can watch Jim Jarmusch’s horror comedy The Dead Don’t Die in the Cinema, for which Sturgill wrote the theme song. The film has an all star cast of actors and musicians starring in his films on a regular basis: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Iggy Pop, Steve Buscemi, Tom Waits, The RZA, Danny Glover and Sturgill himself as a guitar zombie. And some nice trivia for us Dutchies: apart from Sturgill you can hear the Amsterdam band Beans & Fatback as well, with the song 'Backstabber' from 2015!
