Folk Star Joshua Burnell and Band To Play Cardiff Venue
After releasing a weekly folk song for a year, BBC Radio 2 spins and glowing press reviews, York based Joshua Burnell & Band take to the road to launch a brand-new album.
In 2017, Joshua and his band won The Great British Folk Festival audience poll for favourite act by an overwhelming majority and received the ‘Highly Commended Best Performing Artist’ award at the York Culture awards.
Armed with ‘The Road to Horn Fair’, a brand-new album of traditional material which according to Joshua, “juxtaposes the delicacy of the English folk canon with the rawness of the early 70s hard rock movement,” the band are ready to set some feet stomping on their first national tour of England.
Momentum is starting to build fast for the band as they launch the new album and the tour. They will be sharing some material from ‘The Road to Horn Fair’, ahead of its release in early 2019, along with some favourites from Joshua’s previous albums,’ Into the Green’ and ‘Songs from The Seasons’.
Joshua Burnell & Band are playing Cardiff’s Acapela Studio in Pentrych on Sunday 3 February. Tickets £12 Tel. 029 2089 0862 www.acapela.co.uk
