Joint venture into American country music

Johnny Dowd and Melle de Boer travel through the Netherlands as a double bill. Their Going Down the Road Feeling Bad tour marks the occasion of the release of their new albums. Dowd and The Boer play their own songs and, in the collaborative part of the show, perform their joint, unconventional take on American traditional music.

Artist and musician Melle de Boer is known as the lead singer of his band Smutfish. Their 2003 debut record Lawnmower Mind is widely regarded as the founding album of Dutch ‘country noir’. American musician Johnny Dowd lives and breathes American blues, folk and country music, reinterpreting their traditions in his own experimental and darkly humorous way. Dowd and De Boer both have a knack for the eclectic. Don’t expect a sleepy singer songwriter night: their songs are beautiful, urgent, chaotic, loud, noisy, soothing, and above all, unforgettable.
