Wes Finch

"...a welcome and singular addition to the list of new bloods reinvigorating British folk music...Non-traditional acoustic roots delivered with an edgy, risk-taking sonic boldness" (Nigel Williamson in Uncut)

Coventry born Wes returns to The Criterion Theatre with his band to play a mixture of older, known songs and new and unreleased compositions. He has also invited two of his favourite York based artists to perform alongside:


The Howl & The Hum

The Howl & The Hum used to have one head and then someone cut it off so it grew two heads, and this situation reoccurred until the now four-faced hydra began its slow takeover of this planet, beginning in York, UK. Its electric, distorted roar is often softened to a loveless moan, with both ranges being covered in their first song and video Godmanchester Chinese Bridge.


David Ward Maclean

David has worked as a musician in York, England for the past 25 years or so. He has supported John Martyn, Jack Bruce, John James, Ralph McTell, Dougie Maclean, and more recently Martin Carthy, Jethro Tull, John Otway, John Gomm, Edwina Hayes, Chris Helme, Woody Mann and Benjamin Francis Leftwich.

"Great Stuff." - Ian Anderson, Jethro Tull.
"Brill, David!" - Roy Harper.
