Saturday 27. august - 19:15 - Bolero

Katie Pruitt is a voice for our times and a rising star in Nashville TE, USA. Born in 1994 in  Atlanta, Georgia, USA, to Catholic parents, Katie Pruitt began her career as a singer and songwriter at college. She put out an EP in 2018, which led Rolling Stone magazine to place her name on their list of the year’s 10 New Country Artists You Should Know. In February 2020 she made her debut album Expectations. Katie Pruitt says of the album “It’s all about not caring what others expect of you, being free and being yourself.” At age 20, Katie Pruitt came out as a lesbian, and many of her songs deal with the frustrations and shame growing up in a conservative christian environment in the southern states of USA. On the album Expectations, Katie Pruitt mixes country, folk and indie rock, and many of the songs grow dynamically from a quiet, intimate level to a full, grandiose rock production. Solo at Tønder Festival, this is Katie Pruitt’s only Danish festival concert in 2022.
