Finding themselves championed by 6 Music’s Marc Riley and the Eavis family even before self-releasing debut album ‘Under the Pavement’ in late 2008, quickly established Manchester outfit The Travelling Band as ones to watch very closely. Over five years and 400+ shows since their formation, the band have garnered an enviable reputation as one of the U.K’s tightest live acts and hardest working bands. There’s far more to The Travelling Band than primarily meets eye or ear, continuing to develop and flourish from festival favourites into fully fledged recording artists, building a legacy destined to stand the test of time.
As part of the Hey! Manchester-curated line-up at this year’s Sounds From The Other City, The Travelling Band will be performing an interpretation of Neil Young’s album ‘On The Beach’ at First Chop Brewing Arm. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this album, The Travelling Band will put their own spin on Young’s fifth studio album, which has accompanied and influenced them throughout their career. Don’t miss the chance to see this one-off performance live in Manchester!
