About: The Travelling Band are an Alternative folk band from Manchester England famous for their vocal harmonies, honest song-writing and exciting live shows. Their shimmering blend of cosmic-country-pop and nu-folk has made them one of the most talked about artists to emerge from the Manchester music scene. A recording project in New York City in 2006, led a collective of like minded souls to record what was to become “Under the Pavement”, their first studio album. ‘Under the Pavement' was very well received by the UK media, gaining BBC Radio 6 ‘Album of the Day’, BBC Radio 2 'Single of the week’ and a featured song in the Ian Dury biopic 'Sex Drugs & Rock n Roll'. The band have become a firm favorite on the thriving British festival scene. After winning the ‘Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition’ they have performed at Glastonbury, Wychwood, Larmer Tree, Kendal Calling, Wizard, End of Road, Llama, Sunrise, Moseley Folk, Summer Sundae, Mad Ferret, Hop Farm, Hungry Pigeon and Beathearder. International Festival Appearances include CMJ (Usa) ,MIDEM (France), NXNE (Canada), Tbilisi Open Air (Georgia, N.Europe), L'es Nuit D'o (Montpellier, France). 2010 saw the release a live album 'Arrears not Careers' and their festival anthem 'Sundial'. A limited edition 7" vinyl of 'The Horizon, me and you' was released on the Too Pure Singles Club in August. 2011 sees the band preparing for an intense year of global touring with a host of gigs and festivals appearances already confirmed to promote their highly anticipated new album 'SCREAMING IS SOMETHING' scheduled for an early summer release.
