About The Event

Norwich-based alt-country rock band, Brown Horse, are on tour with their debut album: Reservoir (Loose). Rooted in a collaborative approach to songwriting, the six-piece mix guitar-driven 90s alternative rock with the folk and country sounds of the 70s.

“Country rock from East Anglia, haunted by disquiet […] Stunning debut album” 9/10 - Uncut

“Signed to the legendary Loose Records, the Norfolk-based six-piece are staking a claim for an alt-country throne that feels like it’s been sitting empty in recent years with their melodic guitar-driven country rock.” – Holler

“Unvarnished yet impeccably crafted […]” – Folk Radio

2023 Winners of the Janice Long Bursary – Moseley Folk & Arts Festival

FFO: Wednesday, Big Thief, Lucinda Williams, Silver Jews

Ead Wood Described as “defiantly original” by Clash Magazine, Ead Wood debuted as a solo project before its reimagining as a five-piece in 2022 complete with Banjo and Pedal Steel. The Bristol quintet have since established themselves as pillars of the Indie/ Alternative scene through an onslaught of releases and energetic live shows – including performances at Glastonbury festival ,Left of The Dial Festival and a recent appearance supporting Surf Curse at SWX in Bristol.

Their latest release, ‘A Sparkling Gift’ shows the band delving further into the realms of sonic experimentation – The EP finds the band in full command of their influences, with tracks bathed in pedal steel guitar, harmonica and ambient acoustics, offering a more focused distillation of the band’s developing sound than previous efforts. Lyrically, the songs of 'Sparkling Gift' find lead singer songwriter, Ed Soles, with a renewed clarity and maturity, finding sentiment and humour in life's most common places and everyday corners.

Pigeon Wigs Bio - Pigeon Wigs are a 5-piece alt rock band sprung from Cardiff’s fertile soil. Their riff-laden fuzzy tones and melodic harmonies come crashing together to form a wild beast like no other.

After receiving glowing praise from BBC Introducing’s Adam Walton and Bethan Elfyn, and a multitude of press praise including Line of Best Fit, The Crack Magazine and The Rodeo, the gang have gone from strength to strength supporting well-known artists such as Inspiral Carpets, The Bug Club & CVC on their tours as well as spreading their wings at Kendal Calling, Green Man & Shambala last summer.

"Retro-rock juggernaut - Line of Best Fit

“Full of snappy riffs and bags of fuzzy rock and roll that stands or falls on the quality of the melodies, and, thankfully, they’ve got those in spades" - The Crack Magazine

“Phenomenal… funky, dancey, good ol’ fashioned rock n’ roll.” - The Rodeo
