The UK’s best-selling country act The Shires have announced they will bring their intimate acoustic tour to Pocklington Arts Centre early next year. 

Award winning duo, Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes, are the most popular and best-selling country acts in the UK having made huge waves at home and in the US becoming the first UK artists to win ‘Best International Act’ at the prestigious Country Music Awards

The Shires have performed at PAC on numerous occasions, first appearing at the venue in 2014, and have previously headlined the venue’s Platform Festival. 

Ben and Crissie said: “Wembley Stadium, MEN arena, Grand Ole Opry are all amazing, but Pocklington will always be a special place for us!”

The Shires 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. 

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

Currently working on album number five, The Shires, will bring their acoustic tour to PAC on Wednesday 26 January, 2022. 

PAC director Janet Farmer said: “We are delighted to welcome Ben and Crissie back to the venue for this very special intimate, acoustic show. 

“From first playing the venue’s studio inn 2014 to headlining and selling out our summer festival in 2019, it’s been a fantastic journey following their phenomenal success to date and we can’t wait to see them again.”

Tickets are priced at £32.50 each and go on sale at 10am on Friday 24 September
