About A Different Thread

British-Americana band: Our original songs are inspired by the music that has crossed and crisscrossed the Atlantic over the decades in true folk fashion.

A Different Thread’s original songs are inspired by the music that has crossed and crisscrossed the Atlantic Ocean over the generations in true folk fashion, from the rolling hills of Staffordshire to the Appalachian Mountains. Robert Jackson from Lichfield, England and Alicia Best from North Carolina, USA weave together elements of country, Piedmont blues, and bluegrass with traditional English folk, taking additional inspiration from the folk revival movement of the 70's.

Jackson's mournful harmonica, stirring guitar, and distinctive voiceblend with Best's tight harmonies, impulsive fiddle licks, and the drivingbeat of her suitcase drum kit to create what they call 'British-Americana'.Since they formed two years ago, they have been touring, recording,and collaborating with different musicians throughout the UK, USA,Ireland, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Guatemala.They are currently recording their first full-length album in NorthCarolina before touring the UK this summer with cellist Maya McCourt.

Inspired by the likes of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Johnny Cash + June Carter, Doc Watson, Joni Mitchell and Bert Jansch, as well as more contemporary artists such as Willy Mason, Gillian Welch, The Cranberries, Fleet Foxes and Rhiannon Giddens + the Carolina Chocolate Drops.
