A brilliant band, and a good example of that crossover where Britain meets America and it makes it a very special sound indeed! (Ralph McLean - BBC Radio)

We were lucky enough this year to have Rebecca and Simon (Duo) support rising Nashville country star Cale Tyson at his sold out show with us, and they really knocked us out, and obviously our audience too, as we were inundated with requests to have them back for a full gig in their own right. And that's exactly what we've done, so we're thrilled to be able to welcome back The Rosellys for a full band show! And if that isn't excitement enough, we also have the wonderful singer / songwriter Luke Tuchscherer supporting!

"The Rosellys are a 5-piece band who make no apology for their love of Americana. Musically, they blend English accents with lyrical references to both the UK and US alongside well pitched bass, feisty drum beats and stunning pedal steel and fiddle to create a sound that walks the fine line between Celtic folk and Americana" (Nashville Over Here)

In 2015 The Rosellys signed to Clubhouse Records (Redlands Palomino Co, Cale Tyson, Don Gallardo, Erin Rae) and released their first full band album 'The Granary Sessions', gathering praise from musicians, critics and audiences alike. They have toured extensively across the UK, Australia and America - notably the Southern States where San Antonio (Texas) has become their second home. Influenced by artists such as Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, Alison Krauss, Chris Stapleton, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, it is clear The Rosellys have an absolute love for Americana music.


"Hailing from the UK, The Rosellys are really quite an exceptional band that proves the British country music scene is by no means dead and buried (Maverick Magazine)

The Band formed when Rebecca (guitar/vocals) met Simon (guitar/vocals/fiddle) in 2005. Allan (pedal steel/resonator) joined the band in 2006 - recording on all of their albums to date including Drive Through The Night (2006), One Way St (2008), Two Much Like Trouble (2011) and The Granary Sessions (2015). Matt (bass) joined the band in 2015 followed by Andy (drums) creating a powerful alt-country sound.

"The Rosellys capture the essence of country, with folk ingredients baked into a transatlantic roots fusion." (R2 4/5 Stars)

Support for the evening comes from another rising star of the UK Americana scene, Luke Tuchscherer, whose debut album You Get So Alone At Times That It Just Makes Sense was voted second best album of the year in Americana UK's readers poll, along with second best male artist.

A confessional brand of Americana. A performance worthy of a headline slot. His songs are laced with relevance and a deceptively easy, but powerful, lyrical depth. (Nashville Over Here)

The album attracted universal acclaim, and we can vouch for the fact that the album is pretty special indeed, which is why we're really pleased that Luke agreed to come and play this support slot for us. We know you're going to love him!
