Wild Ponies + Danni Nicolls @ The Prince Albert, Monday 28th January

For Brighton Americana Week, Wild Ponies and Danni Nicolls will be performing smoky soul, folk – pop and alt-country sounds at The Prince Albert. Inspired by the musical roots of Nashville, a place so popular for its music scene that it is commonly known as ‘Music City’, and Southwest Virginia, these powerful musicians will take you to out of the city and into the rugged landscapes of North America.
