About The Prairie Hearts
The Prairie Hearts are a group of friends who came together to indulge their love of Roots, Country and Americana music. Despite being from Hampshire in the South of the UK, they find there's a common thread in the stories and characters of these old songs that transcend time and national boundaries. So, the notion of a British country band doesn't seem so strange!
And there are new stories waiting to be told - many of the songs The Prairie Hearts play are their own original compositions. Some (but not all) involve cowboys, spittoons and broken hearts...
