I have said on a number of occasions that Manchester as a real buzzing alt.country and folk revival movement going on at the moment, and tonight’s gig should be a great example of that. Along with contemporaries Blind Atlas and Walton Hesse, The Travelling Band have been creating wonderfully harmonic and warm Americana tinged music for a while now.
Recently signed to the prestigious Cooking Vinyl label and celebrating the release of a brand new album, tonight’s gig at the Deaf Institute may well be the last chance Manchester crowds have to catch the group in such an intimate venue. Destined for big things, The Travelling Band are.
Tonight (19/05/2011), The Deaf Institute, Manchester.
