Rita Hosking and Sean Feder to play the Back Room, Cottingham
You only have to listen to a few seconds of Rita Hosking singing "fly away little pretty bird" and you are instantly drawn in.
She hails from the hills of Northern California and sounds like a real mountain music sort of girl.
Fans will be clambering for their phones to book tickets to see the acclaimed performer with musician Sean Feder at the Back Room next week.
The duo's new album, Little Boat, is released the same day and with only six dates in England, an East Yorkshire venue owner is excited about the furore they will create.

Paul Sutton, owner of The Back Room, is expecting strong interest in the gig.
He said: "Since starting our regular live shows about a year ago we've had some terrific singer-songwriters from the States, Canada, Australia and Yorkshire.
"But this gig promises to be one of the best.
"Rita has earned rave reviews around the world and Sean is a hugely talented musician who can turn his hand to almost any instrument.
"The new album has only been available at gigs so far.
"It has been very well received and we're honoured Rita and Sean are having their launch gig at The Back Room before playing the rest of their UK dates and then heading home to California."
Little Boat was recorded in November last year over four days in Austin, Texas, at the home studio of Rich Brotherton, who also produced Rita's highly acclaimed Burn, and the award-winning Come Sunrise.
In contrast to those, Little Boat takes a somewhat simpler approach.
Rita is on guitar and harmonica, Sean on dobro and banjo, daughter Kora on clawhammer banjo, and Rich Brotherton on guitar, bass and various acoustic instruments.
Burn made the Observer's Hidden Gems of 2011 list and received high praise from The Telegraph.
She told the press: "I started songwriting on a guitar when I was going to college.
"My friends and roommates got together and bought me an old Gibson.
"I learnt three chords, popped a song out and started doing open mic nights."
Rita released her first record in 2005 and tours around the Netherlands, England and the US every year.
She said: "I want to keep making records. I have released four albums and a live EP that was recorded down a gold mine. I love writing songs and singing and I want to keep doing it for as long as I can."
• Rita Hosking and Sean Feder are at the Backroom, Hallgate, Cottingham, at 7.30pm on Tuesday (March 5).
