Manchester’s finest folkrock superhumans, The Travelling Band, have won hearts and minds wherever they’ve found themselves, combining the strut of refried Southern Country with the One Foot On The Monitor mayhem of the E Street Band.The Travelling Band aren’t messing around – music is what makes their blood move.

Fans of Calexico, Iron & Wine, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Frightened Rabbit and Elbow should apply here, for The Travelling Band are the kings of North Country & Western music.

“The sounds they generate took me back to my musical roots… Marvellous music to savour and enjoy” – Michael Eavis, Glastonbury Festival

“Their harmonies are tight, guitar picking deft and tunes melodic” – Q Magazine

“The Travelling Band blur the folk/rock boundaries, delicately intertwining sensitive lyrics with accomplished folk vocals and jangly instrumental accompaniments to form a tapestry of glittering whimsy” The Sun

We’re delighted to be able to bring Jack Harris back after his bafflingly brilliant set last time around. Jack’s live show is a riveting mix of song-craft and story-telling, adorned by intricate fingerstyle guitar and smoky, soulful vocals. Drawing from the narrative traditions of folk and blues music, Jack brings both into the here and now; a “born poet”, whose songs are steeped in myth and mystery.

“Jack Harris is a priest of song who holds himself to a rigorous, ancient code of beauty most of us have forgotten exists.” - Anaïs Mitchell

 

lewisandleighLewis & Leigh are an alt-country/americana duo from London. Though they hail from Wales and Mississippi respectively, it was through their Nashville connections that Al Lewis and Alva Leigh met.

Sometimes when we get sent demos they just force themselves to the front of the queue, and this was one of those times. These two are special, end of. Enjoy.
