Shovels & Rope

Black Deer Festival Shovels & Rope

Shovels & Rope

Americana heroes Shovels & Rope are a husband and wife duo with a raw roots sound that leaves a mark on all who hear them. They were the Americana Music Association’s Emerging Artists of the Year in 2013 and followed that up with another AMAs win in 2013 when their song ‘Birmingham’ was named Song of the Year. Albums such as ‘Swimmin’ Time’ and ‘By Blood’ are favourites of the roots community and their songs have swam the mainstream due to the success of the popular documentary about the band ‘The Ballad Of Shovels & Rope’.
2021 has seen Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst release ‘Busted Jukebox Vol. 3’, their cover series featuring collaborations with The Milk Carton Kids, Shaky Graves, Sharon Von Etten and more. The band’s trademark guttural and authentic sounds and songs will go down a storm at Black Deer.
