Patrick Watson (CA)

Patrick Watson has a special connection with the Netherlands: his first two albums and shows at Lowlands and Crossing Border earned him a solid Dutch fan base. After sold out shows in the Melkweg and Paradiso, he returned to Amsterdam last April for an exclusive concert with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. There, the persistent classic undertones in Watson’s music were emphasized in all its glory. As a prelude to his third album ‘Adventures In Your Own Backyard’, Watson did some special performances in unusual locations: alongside train tracks in Quebec, but also in a backyard in Amsterdam. The long awaited new album is set to be released on April 16th 2012 on the Domino label, and will be, in Watson’s own words, “more heartfelt and direct than the other records.”
