High & Lonesome have announced the first acts for their fourth edition of their festival. Once again taking place at the end of November at the legendary Brudenell Social Club and the stunning Left Bank Leeds, High & Lonesome continue to build their reputation for putting together interesting and diverse line ups of artists that share their love of great songs.
Leading this announcement is the excellent John Smith, who will be stopping by on his UK/EU tour to support his critically acclaimed new album 'Headlong' and Nashville singer-songwriter Josh Rouse. Also on this announcement is Manchester folk-pop band The Travelling Band, London singer-songwriter Alessi's Ark and recent Domino Records signing Seamus Fogarty.
Also performing at the festival will be some of the most exciting new names in songwriting with new Loose artists William The Conqueror, the fast-rising Brooke Bentham and two of Leeds' brightest new talents in the form of Shadowlark and Tamzene.
The announcement of the fourth festival comes after a great first half of the year for High & Lonesome that has seen them take over at the stage at Bluedot Festival at the incredible Jodrell Bank Space Observatory and host artists in Leeds including Margo Price, Courtney Marie Andrews, John Moreland, Noah Gunderson, Bear's Den, Andy Shauf, Hiss Golden Messenger and Hurray For The Riff Raff among many others!
