Four stripped back shows to feature songs from her recent album: 'Standing In The Doorway: Chrissie Hynde Sings Bob Dylan' which was recorded in lockdown by Chrissie and her Pretenders bandmate James Walbourne, almost entirely by text message. James would record an initial idea on his phone and send it off to Chrissie to add her vocal, before the tracks were mixed by Tchad Blake (U2, Arctic Monkeys, Fiona Apple). 

A companion film called 'Tomorrow Is A Long Time', which details the recording of the album, is also available via Sky Arts.

Special guests for all four shows will be The Rails, Kami Thompson (daughter of Richard and Linda) and James Walbourne (guitarist with The Pretenders) previous winners of Best New Artist at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
