Video: Unforgettable Pronsky beat
ONE of New York's finest singers is heading to Barton-upon-Humber to put on a performance you won't forget.
Brooklyn native Rebecca Pronsky is coming to the Ropery Hall as part of a two-week tour of the UK.
Rebecca's style is "twangy folk", of which Mark Keable, of MTM promotions, said: "Her music is as urban as it is rural and she is not afraid to be sophisticated."
She is promoting her new record entitled Only Daughter, which is released on March 19 and will be touring with her husband, Rich Bennett, who is also her lead guitarist.
Rebecca's musical life began early and, as a child, her powerful voice and musical talent stuck out and she was encouraged to pursue vocal training in New York City.
But it wasn't until she was 16, after many years of singing other people's songs, that she picked up the guitar and began to write her own music.
At university she discovered ethnomusicology and jazz singing and recorded her first demo of original music.
After graduation, Rebecca moved back home to Brooklyn where she met guitarist and composer Rich who helped her record her first EP and has been her musical partner and co-producer ever since.
Rebecca will be on stage at Ropery Hall on Saturday, March 30, starting at 8pm.
Tickets cost £10 in advance or £12 on the door. To book a ticket, or for more information, call01652 660380.
