After concerts at the Circus Theater in Braga on September 14th and the next day at the CCOP auditorium in Porto, it is time for Courtney Marie Andrews to say goodbye to the Portuguese stage. Tonight at Musicbox from 22:00.
In the first part, we will be able to see and hear Portuguese singer Ana Stilwell.
Courtney Marie Andrews spent over nine months of 2017 on the road, with multiple trips across the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. That’s nothing new for Andrews, though. She’s been touring relentlessly since leaving her Arizona hometown at 16. It’s a life that inspired much of her 2016 breakthrough album, Honest Life.
While that album’s themes spoke to the isolation and rootlessness inherent in a life on the road, most of its songs were actually written during an intentional, extended break. The success that followed its release, however, didn’t afford her the same break to write the material for her new album.
