Manchester six-piece The Travelling Band take influence from folk, county, psyche and rock before filtering it through their own sunshine-pop sensibility. Here is a band who excel at sounding happy, sad, frustrated, and vulnerable, often at the same time, and their best songs, whether they’re fast or slow, feel like they’re bursting with energy and wisdom. The Travelling Band’s live show is a feel-good tour-de-force.

Support comes from London based singer-songwriter Sam Lewis.

Sam’s music has a unique modern sound; a heady mix of soulful vocals, heartfelt passionate lyrics with tinges of blues, country, folk and soul, all played with a vitality that is fast becoming his trade mark style: truly unique and beautiful.
