LONG LOST TOM AND FRIENDS – Live in concert.
August 29 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£6
LONG LOST TOM AND THE HARRIETS Live in concert
Long Lost Tom is a budding songwriter from the liquorice fields of Pontefract. Performing his own songs on his Hofner Senator guitar, LLT reflects his regional area in his music. He has put out two acclaimed EPs: Long Lost Tom and Liquorice Sticks, both of which show his keen lyrical focus along with the spring and twang of his guitar melodies.
The Harriets are a Leeds-based power pop band who have received airplay on BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing and were praised by Glastonbury Emerging Talent and RSD Unsigned. Fronted by two singer-songwriters, they deal in driving, uber-melodic ’70s-inspired pop, adorned with distinctive vocal harmonies and brought to the stage with plentiful high kicks.
“I challenge you not to instantly fall in love with The Harriets. This is a song to take you straight back to youth – whether recent or more distant – in a kind of marriage of the best of Belle & Sebastian and Squeeze. A great live band too” – Competition Judges, Glastonbury Emerging Talent
“To me, their song Television sounds like a lost classic recording from CBGB’s era New York, which in my book is high praise indeed” – Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
