A firm favourite of the late great John Peel who literally played her hit Twist The Knife in a loop up to 4 times in one show, this is a rare chance to witness a bona fide country singer on a Berlin stage.
There’s a special challenge to being an artist in this increasingly fractured cultural age; a delicate balancing act, between being of your time, and striving for timelessness. Few contemporary artists even try. Neko Case is an exception.
Neko Richelle Case is an American singer-songwriter, best known for her solo career and her contributions as a member of the Canadian indie rock group The New Pornographers.
