Rising UK acoustic-rock trio Wildwood Kin have released a live video for “The Crown” via American Songwriter. Recorded at The Caves in Edinburgh, Scotland, on the group’s album release tour in December, the performance showcases the band’s telekinetic chemistry.
Comprised of sisters Emilie Key (guitar) and Beth Key (bouzouki/keyboards) and their cousin Meghann Loney (drums/percussion), “The Crown” is a song about “leadership power politics and empires. It was inspired by the phrase ‘with great power comes great responsibility’ and poses the question of whether leaders will still stand up for what’s right even when fame fortune and the glamorous aspects of leadership are stripped away. It encourages the idea of selfless leadership and of putting the needs of others first.”
Recently performing “Why Don’t You Write Me” with the BBC Concert Orchestra at the London Palladium for the 50th anniversary of Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘Bridge over Troubled Water’ album, the band will once again hit the festival circuit this summer.
In June, the group will return to the acclaimed Black Deer Festival of Americana and Country Music. Held at Eridge Park in Tunbridge Wells, UK, Britain’s oldest Deer Park, the line-up for the 3-day gathering also includes Wilco, Saving Grace Ft. Robert Plant & Suzi Dian, The Waterboys, Shovels & Rope, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, The Milk Carton Kids, Jade Bird, Imelda May, The Secret Sisters, The Felice Brothers, The Dead South, Shooter Jennings, Birds of Chicago, and Courtney Marie Andrews.
The trio will also perform at Nibley Fest in Gloucestershire, UK, Hanwell Hootie in London and Between The Trees, a family friendly festival set in a Welsh woodland by the sea in South Wales.
