SATURDAY’S ‘SHOWCASE AMERICANA’
Josh Okeefe is a singer/songwriter from Derby, living in Nashville, Tennessee. His authentic, raw, roots song-writing is delivered by the voice of a world-weary, American old-timer. Okeefe’s voice hits you with the force of a hurricane: a rare, powerful, gravelly sound, the likes of which is usually crafted from many decades of nicotine, alcohol and hard living in the deep south. He is often compared to the like of Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie. He is an artist who prefers to let the songs do the talking and a character with a penchant for the unpredictable.
