Travelling Band Bring Cosmic Country Pop to The Met

The Met welcomes The Travelling Band on Wednesday 7 December at 8pm.

The Travelling Band’s shimmering blend of cosmic-country-pop, understated psychedelia, vocal harmonies and nu-folk has made them one of the most talked about artists to emerge from the Manchester music scene.

“If you consider the term Mancunian Americana to be an oxymoron try listening to The Travelling Band. Brilliant.” Marc Riley BBC 6 Music.

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 debut studio album. Released two years later, the record was very well received by the UK media, gaining BBC Radio 6 Album of The Day, BBC Radio 2’s Single of The Week and a featured song in the Ian Dury biopic Sex Drugs & Rock n Roll.

“The sounds they generate took me back to my musical roots… Marvellous music to savour and enjoy”Michael Eavis, Glastonbury Festival

Their 10 track second album demonstrates a giant leap forward for the band. Released earlier this year, Screaming Is Something, isn’t quite soul music, isn’t quite folk, isn’t quite pop, country or rock, has been well received by the media.
“Sparkling harmonies and bright chirpy guitars pepper this album full of bright-eyed optimism” - Jerome Blakeney, BBC 6Music

Tickets are £8 standing or £10 seated. To book call the ticket office on 0161 7612216 or go on line at www.themet.biz
