Outside Lands 2013 Spotlight: Foy Vance Outside Lands 2013 Spotlight: Foy Vance


Man I hope Foy Vance still has this mustache when I see him at Outside Lands. I mean your singer songwriter street cred goes through the roof when it looks like your next job is Cockney chimney sweep… Ok calling a man Cockney who is from the seaside town of Bangor in Northern Ireland is probably grounds for a fight so I digress.
What I really need to be talking about is the unique perspective that Foy enjoys from being born in Northern Ireland; spending his childhood with his father, a preacher, travelling the American South; settling in Oklahoma; than returning to Ireland years later. The end effect of all this cultural cross pollination is timeless music that has a distinct privilege of sounding Americana and Old-World at the same time.

At Outside Lands 2013 (sfoutsidelands.com) Foy Vance will be appearing on the Sutro Stage at Noon – 12:40pm on Friday Aug 9th. After that he has a series of club and Festival dates in UK, Europe and the US, which include T In The Park, Truck Festival, Squamish in British Columbia, CA and Lyons Folk Festival in Colorado.
