When: 25th November 2017
Where: Brudenell Social Club, Leeds, West Yorkshire
Tucked away on the last Saturday of November, High & Lonesome is something of a hidden festival gem. It is small, perfectly formed and consistently punches above its weight in attracting to Leeds some of the very best modern songwriting that is around today.
In firm keeping with previous years, its fourth annual edition once more boasts an absolutely cracking line-up. Headlining the High & Lonesome Festival in 2017 are the revered English guitarist and singer-songwriter John Smith and his equally acclaimed American counterpart, Josh Rouse.
An exceptionally strong undercard features amongst many others the varied delights of Kent folk-pop outfit Keston Cobbler’s Club, the consistently marvellous The Travelling Band from Manchester and coming all the way from Nashville, Tennessee the former Old Crow Medicine Show member Gill Landry.
And to ensure that there is a local West Yorkshire representation on the bill, the newly-formed trio Shadowlark (emerging out of the ashes of Ellen and the Escapades) and fellow Leeds’ band Crake will both be performing at High & Lonesome on the 25th of November.
This year’s event will take place entirely within the four walls of the Brudenell Social Club in west Leeds, with the famous venue’s recently opened Community Room replacing that of the neighbouring West Bank church.
It all promises to be yet another great festival in the most warm, welcoming and intimate of surroundings and can be enjoyed for what is the ridiculously competitive price of £18.00 (plus transaction fee) from Music Glue, See Tickets, the Brudenell Social Club, Crash and Jumbo Records in Leeds.
