No stranger to the Kitchen Garden, MWK returns for a solo show.

He is the former leader of U.K. Alt Country pioneers The Good Sons, with whom he made 4 ground breaking and critically hailed albums in a seven year career, which was celebrated by the double album, Cosmic Fireworks-The Best of The Good Sons (1994-2001).

From 1999 – 2010 he toured the world as a solo artist and performing with the likes of Nick Cave, John Cale, Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, Guy Clark, Chris Hillman, Ron Sexsmith, and many more. He released 6 studio albums, 3 live albums and a career retrospective dvd, The Crowning Story, along the way.

For the past ten years he has been half of the brilliant country soul duo My Darling Clementine with his wife Lou Dalgleish. Together they have toured widely across Europe and N.America, and released 5 much loved and much lauded albums, the latest being Country Darkness, a collaboration with Steve Nieve re-interpreting the songs of Elvis Costello.

But this is a rare solo appearance timed to coincide with the release of a new album, The Struggle , his first solo album in eleven years.

He will be joined by Welsh wunderkind, the brilliant guitarist Clovis Phillips with whom Michael has collaborated on the new album.

The live show will feature the Struggle played in it’s entirety, as well as favourites from his 25 year / 19 album career. As ever there will also be room for some of MWK’s amusing observations and an anecdote or two about his many years as a touring musician.

“Michael Weston King has a voice part Nashville balladeer and part Alt Country hero………a cross between Nick Cave and Rodney Crowell.” (The Independent).

“There were times on the struggle I was reminded of both Jerry Jeff Walker and Gilbert O Sullivan, sometimes even at the same time. It’s overwhelmingly dour, it’s downbeat, it’s sad, it’s thought provoking but at the same time it’s inspirational and  just, really, really beautiful – 5 stars*****”(Country Music People).
