MONDAY 30TH JANUARY
The Head And The Heart‘s new release Signs Of Light, recorded in Nashville, crackles with the upbeat, sing-a-long energy of the the band’s finest work. Throughout, the colors are brighter, the electric guitars are louder and the musical touchstones more universal, with nods to classic Fleetwood Mac. Support comes from Cattle & Cane with their finely crafted indie-pop and mesmerising harmonies.

SATURDAY 4TH FEBRUARY
After supporting the likes of Ryan Adams, Father John Misty and Beck, Kieran Leonard returns with his new band Saint Leonard’s Horses. Born out of a visit to Stanley Kubrick’s family estate in St Albans, Hertfordshire, the intention was to harness the creative forces at work in the Kubrick house and record new material as ‘live’ as possible with the five-piece band playing together in the same room, and even lead vocals being laid down live with each track. Support comes from singer-songwriter Joseph Hicklin, and Bob Dylan and Ben Howard inspired Jack Cooper And The Offshore.
