The Most Ugly Child / Live Music, Soul

Sat 8Mar
9:00 PM

Note: This event has finished


The Most Ugly Child are a five piece Country/Americana band from Nottingham, UK. Brought together by a mutual appreciation for the revival of old time country and bluegrass music, the group centre around the partnership of singer/songwriters Daniel Wright & Stevie-Leigh Goodison.

Influenced by the high and lonesome sounds of Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and George Jones, the pair have been likened to some of the great male/female country duos of yesteryear, such as Johnny and June Carter-Cash.


Their original material blends seamlessly with old time country classics and listening to Daniel’s own ‘Bluebird’ you could be forgiven for thinking it was penned by the late great Hank Williams himself.


The new, soon to be release EP features the full band including Max Johnson and Matt Cutler (The Broom Hill String Band) on upright bass & drums respectively and Nicole J Terry (The Rip Roaring Success) on Fiddle.


“Daniel Wright is a young man with a wise old head…like Justin Townes Earle, he seems possessed by the spirits of the great singers of the past.” – Alan J Taylor (No Depression/Maverick)
“A young band with an amazing feel and understanding of old timey country music” – The Chickenhead Lounge, The Musician
