JAYWALKERS WITH LITTLE RACH

This event is sold out. To join the waiting list for ticket returns, click here or call The Met on 0161 761 2216.

Since reaching the finals of the BBC Young Folk Awards in 2008, Jaywalkers have cemented their place as one of the most exciting, virtuosic and entertaining young bands working on the British Folk scene. Creating a unique sound, the band takes influence from folk, bluegrass, country and western swing music in the form of virtuosic instrumentals, 3-part harmony and impressive slap bass. After being awarded the Help Musicians UK Emerging Excellence Award in 2014, their 3rd studio album, produced by award winner Andy Bell, is being released in March 2015. The album will heavily feature Mike Giverin's (mandolin, harmony vocals, guitar) original compositions that take inspiration from the Lancashire stories that are a part of his heritage as well as a few traditionals.

"A joy to watch... great stage presence with top-quality musicianship" R2 Magazine​

Little Rach returns to The Met to perform songs off her debut album 'If You Go'. With her beautifully pure voice and a true sensibility for live performances her songs will make you laugh, cry and wonder.
