Join the UK’s best-selling country act and award-winning duo The Shires for an intimate, acoustic performance at The Fire Station, featuring their greatest hits and favourite tracks.

The Shires’ Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes have made huge waves both on home soil and across the pond becoming the first UK artists to win ‘Best International Act’ at the prestigious Country Music Awards.

The duo released their debut album, Brave in 2015 which soon reached GOLD-certified status and topped the UK country charts. A further two gold-certified albums and three Top 10 singles followed, firmly cementing their status as two of country music’s most prominent voices.

In 2020, Ben and Crissie released the acclaimed Good Years and in April 2021 they released a new version of their ballad track ‘On The Day I Die’ with American country superstar Jimmie Allen.
