Brooklyn ‘indie-twang songstress’ Rebecca Pronsky will be performing at Belper Rugby Club on Friday, June 20, as part of a UK tour to support her acclaimed album Only Daughter.

The gig is the second date on an extensive UK tour that takes in the likes of Sheffield, London, the Scottish Highlands, Bristol and Suffolk.

Rebecca Pronsky is a born and raised Brooklynite whose songs are gritty and dark, layered and dreamy, bravely disobeying the usual conventions of the Americana genre.

Rebecca has been singing since her schooldays and added songwriting to her repertoire around the age of 16 when she picked up the guitar for the first time.

She went on to study ethnomusicology and jazz at Brown University and came home to Brooklyn with a diploma and a demo CD. She soon met guitarist and composer Rich Bennett, who has been her musical partner and co-producer ever since. The two married in 2012.

Rebecca and Rich are a touring team who have graced the stage internationally at clubs and festivals.

Rebecca’s newest record Only Daughter is her third release on Austin, TX label Nine Mile Records. Pronsky

Admission is £6 and the doors open at 7.30pm.
