Award-winning crime-writer Mark Billingham and leading country duo My Darling Clementine come together to present a dark and glorious mix of song and story.
A rundown Memphis bar. Lust, murder and domestic horror. That long and difficult search for…The Other Half. This unique and brilliant show comes to the Liverpool Phil’s new Music Room on Wednesday 18th November 2015 direct from spots at the Edinburgh and Latitude festival this summer.
Billingham’s series of crime novels featuring the detective Tom Thorne led to an acclaimed TV show starring David Morrissey. Now the author has teamed up with My Darling Clementine whose Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish are a modern day classic country duo in the mould of George Jones and Tammy Wynette or Dolly Parton and Porter Waggoner. Pain, loss and violence are the lifeblood of crime fiction, but also the dark seam that runs through the very best country music.
Tickets are £14 from liverpoolphil.com or the box office on 0151 709 3789
Mark, Michael and Lou will be on Billy Butler’s show on BBC Radio Merseyside on Wednesday 18th November to talk about the show.
