Cornwall trio William the Conqueror have been picking up praise from far flung corners ever since Ruarri Joseph took the step to go public with his erstwhile secret alter-ego. The band's debut album, Proud Disturber of the Peace, was released in the summer to widespread critical acclaim, and their shows have been steadily winning over fans up and down the country. After a summer of festivals, followed by a tour opening for Loose label-mates Danny & the Champions of the World, the band are now readying themselves for a run of headline shows.
The indie-rock three piece sees Ruarri joined by bassist Naomi Holmes and drummer Harry Harding, channelling classic blues and roots through a grunge/indie filter, with diverse influences including The Doors, Ryan Adams and The Lemonheads.
Praised for their grit and authenticity by the likes of The Guardian and NPR's Ann Powers, they made their mark at AmericanaFest in Nashville, signing to Loose, and going on to pick up a nomination at the UK Americana Awards 2017, where they shared the stage with the likes of Van Morrison, Richard Thompson and Ethan Johns.

Opening for William the Conqueror will be John Dhali two time winner of 'best solo act' at the Staffordshire and Cheshire music awards.
John continues to wow audiences wherever he goes and has already played alongside such renowned artists as Scott Matthews, Frank Turner and A500 Music favourite Willy Porter.
Since his last performance at Fulford, the 23 year old has signed his first record deal with 'Kidda Records' which he hopes will help propel him to a bigger platform and once you've seen him on stage, you won't question the possibility of that happening.
John's live performances are something special and his unique soulful blues voice, stunning lyrics and infectious tunes will remain in your head for days

A500 Music aim to present some of the finest live music in a friendly and intimate environment.
We seat our audience in a cabaret style and because we always hope to be near capacity, we allocate seating to our guests according to when they purchased their tickets.
By inviting you to *bring your own drink*, we are making the evening an inexpensive as well as enjoyable experience.
Drinking glasses will be available on the night and we also provide free hot drinks.
