On personal recommendation from Blue Sky favourites The Goat Ropers, we have some of the finest new talent from the North East! What’s more it’s going to be a fully acoustic performance from their brand new EP promising a magical atmosphere.
The Often Herd reach beyond what is expected of a bluegrass band, marrying the wistful sunshine harmonies of Southern California with the striking industrial allure of their home in the North East of England. An engaging and dynamic live act, the band are able to pull off their intricately arranged material alongside moments of exciting, spontaneous improvisation.
Rupert Hughes (guitar) and Evan Davies (mandolin) are responsible for penning the band’s vibrant and catchy original music. American fiddler Niles Krieger and jazz bassist Sam Quintana contribute deft and dynamic instrumental skills that lift the songs to new heights.
The Often Herd will be releasing their self-titled debut EP early in 2018 and will be hitting the road soon thereafter. Flock to the herd; you won’t be disappointed.
