Following the success of their debut album ‘Wild Silence’ and an all important appearance on the Andrew Marr show without sneakily changing any lyrics, Americana’s answer to the New Main Street Singers, The Wandering Hearts, have announced a UK headline tour in November/December, including a London show at Islington Assembly Hall on Wednesday 28 November. Having already sold out three London headline dates, most recently Bush Hall, the show is being hailed as the band’s biggest performance yet.
In February, the band won the coveted Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award at The UK Americana Awards 2018, a prizehand-picked by the broadcaster himself. They performed their song ‘Burning Bridges’ at the awards ceremony, and joined Imelda May, Mumford and Sons and Robert Plant on stage for a rendition of the late Tom Petty’s ‘Wildflowers’.
