Lost Weekend Launch

Wildwood Kin

+ Robert Vincent & Catherine McGrath

TV and radio presenter Bob Harris is hosting a special edition of his Under The Apple Tree Sessions in Exeter Cathedral to launch the brand new Lost Weekend festival. 

Headlining will be Exeter’s own Wildwood Kin, playing their biggest hometown concert to date. The all-female, indie folk trio’s debut album Turning Tides was released to critical acclaim in Augustand this will be their first Exeter show since its release.  Selected by the BBC as one of the highlights of Glastonbury 2017, the girls are known for their sublime harmonies and accompany themselves on acoustic instruments underpinned by Meghann Loney’s driving percussion. 

Bob commented – ‘It’s a great privilege to be able to call Wildwood Kin my chosen ‘Emerging Artist of the Year’ for 2017. They are so special, and having them perform in the breathtaking Exeter Cathedral for my Under The Apple Tree Sessions will be a truly memorable evening. Joining them will be my 2016 Emerging Artist from last year Robert Vincent, and the hottest rising UK Country star Catherine McGrath.

Wildwood Kin’s acclaimed anglo/americana live show combines their own beautiful and thought provoking original songs with a few stunning arrangements of better-known covers. Their voices meld perfectly in effortlessly sublime harmonies over a range of instruments. 

As headliners at  BBC Introducing stage at Somersault festival and stand out performers at Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival and Beautiful Days, they continue to enchant audiences with every performance.
