Tami Neilson’s extrovert show made a lasting impression at Tønder Festival 2017 with its power and its good old country style. You have more in store with her return this year. One reviewer called Tami Neilson “a red hot honky tonker somewhere between Patsy Cline and Wanda Jackson with a dash of sophisticated Peggy Lee.” Another critic writes that Tami Neilson brings the same to country music that Amy Winehouse brought to R & B music. Understandable, since Tami Neilson takes the recognisable roots of 50s country music and whisks them up to the present day. Tami Neilson is no newcomer. As a youngster she was part of the Canadian family country group The Neilsons, who were very successful in Canada in the 90s.

In 2007 she moved to New Zealand and launched her solo career. Since then it’s been up all the way, and her two most recent albums Dynamite! (2014) and Don’t be Afraid from 2015, have won her prizes and sent Tami Neilson on major tours. Only Danish festival concert in 2018.
