Josh O'Keefe

Music Event
Derby born, and now living in Nashville - Tennessee, Josh O'Keefe is visiting Matlock Bath as part of his coveted 2020 UK Tour!

A rebel artist, a protest singer, the heir to Bob Dylan, or – when he's doing one of his lighter satirical numbers – a harmonica-tootin' Mr. Bean… with raw, topical storytelling and a voice that crackles with authentic folk tradition, Okeefe is all of those and more.

Having just launched his Debut Album: Bloomin' Josh will be back in the UK this year, and has chosen to return to his roots between his London and Edinburgh gigs, and visit us here at The Grand Pavilion, Matlock Bath, in support of our Restoration Project.

More about Josh:

In 2012, Derby (England) native and folk-singer Josh Okeefe dropped out of school, travelled across the Atlantic and arrived in Nashville, TN in search of the places his idols Hank Williams and Johnny Cash once graced. He became a regular in the rock and roll clubs on the east side and the legendary honky-tonks on Lower Broadway; met a host of other musicians and began writing songs at an astonishing pace.

Over a couple of nights in his 350 sq. ft Tennessee log cabin Okeefe recorded his critically acclaimed self-titled debut album with just a borrowed RCA Microphone from the 1960’s that vibrated its diaphragm and carbon to the to the voices of Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Guy Clark, and other towering specters of country music. and an Ampex 2-track Tape Machine which Okeefe purchased from JJ Cale’s estate for $100.

Catapulting himself into the spotlight Josh Okeefe has already performed with the likes of Alison Krauss and Jamey Johnson, earned headline festival spots and BBC Radio apperances, sang for the people at national and local protests and had his songs recorded by major label artists like Ashley Monroe and High Valley to name a few and this is just the start...
