"The next time someone asks me life in York is like, I'm gonna tell them to go check out Harrison Rimmer...C. It's vulnerable and fragile, it's bold and it's beautiful, and I'll be spinning it for a long time to come."
tellallyourfriendspromouk.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/harrison-rimmer-c.html

"Of course, there is nothing cliche about Harrison Rimmer’s acoustic compositions at all, because it isn't on the level of that moron in ripped jeans, with his songs of fabricated conviction, wooing high-school girls under the tree in the playground. No where near."
Matthew Spear, Musically Fresh

"...Rimmer is a singer-songwriter that is slowly starting to make a name for himself and when you listen to this EP there will be no trouble in figuring out why that is. With the raw passion and talent that shows throughout the EP (C) Rimmer is definitely an artist to keep an eye out for..."- Rachel Colley from Mad Alice Records

Afternoon Americana41 call laneLeeds,LS1 7BT Map

We're so glad Katie will be stopping off and playing for us on her tour. Please get down early, this will be a busy one!

“The way Katie plays is never contrived, showy or imitative; it sounds true … a world-class folk guitarist”- fRoots

“Great discoveries are always a pleasure and Katie Spencer’s debut album Weather Beaten is a grand pleasure” - RnR Magazine

Like the expressionistic brushstrokes of a landscape painter, Katie Spencer conjures vivid landscapes through the medium of song. Curating intimate studies using her unique finger picked acoustic guitar style and an assured warm voice, Spencer underlines the sense of space that surrounds her home by the sea in Hornsea, East Yorkshire.

The striking imagery that rings through her ethereal songs creates a universe of sound and storytelling. Her mesmeric live performances have seen her play world-renowned stages, at the likes of Cambridge Folk Festival and Celtic Connections as she assembles a dedicated fanbase from all corners of the country.

This year saw Spencer embarking on a UK tour in celebration of her brand-new album Weather Beaten, a flawless and flowing ten track journey that encapsulates her intimate live performance style. Produced by Spencer Cozens, long-time collaborator of John Martyn and Joan Armatrading, the sound of the album is clear and bright, bringing a precision and boldness reminiscent of the best ‘ECM’ modern jazz albums which naturally pairs with the warm and hazy folk sound that envelops Katie’s style.

At just 22 years old Spencer has built up an extremely respected profile within the national acoustic music scene, sharing the stage with musicians of outstanding calibre such as Danny Thompson and Ted McKenna, and continuing to receive glowing reviews of both her live performances and recorded works.

Apr 23, 8:00pm - Apr 23, 11:00pm

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar41 Call LaneLeeds,LS1 7BT Map

New Terminal Boy are a 4-Piece Rock band from Leeds, West Yorkshire.

Neil Williams – Vocals, acoustic guitar
Giuseppe Perniola – Electric guitar
Bryan Lund – Bass, backing vocals
Jon Bull - Drum

If you're a fan of alternative, progressive, "anti-establishment" Rock, then this Leeds based band is right up your street with deep and meaningful lyrics that give a social commentary to the society we live in. This is a band who knows the frustration that comes with the love of music and they use that to their advantage, whether you catch them live or via media player. This is "New Terminal Boy".

Now based in Leeds New Terminal Boy formed in London in early 2014. The London era of the band ended at the end of 2014 when Giuseppe Perniola, the bands lead guitarist and main songwriter moved to Leeds but that wasn't the end only just the beginning for the band who continue to enjoy success, performing at a slew of gigs across Northern England and having their music played on various internet stations.

Their music is a mix of alternative with a blend of hard & heavy rock, touching upon the post punk and new wave era. Their performances are ones not to be missed and whilst the guys music is hard and heavy, they are true gentlemen to speak to!

With influences that range from britpop and heavy metal, New Terminal Boy is a band that more that adequately suits the "up & coming Rock Icons" mantle!

The band's first EP "Orchestra of Vandals" released at the back end of 2017, it's a five track masterpiece of 4 original songs plus one amazing cover of The Animals "House of the Rising Sun".
Then in July 2019 the first self-produced LP "Nowhere; now here" has been released.

At the moment they are playing various gigs across UK and already working on new tunes, which will be part of the forthcoming album that will be released by the end of next year.

The Banquets

May 1, 8:00pm - May 1, 11:00pm

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar41 Call LaneLeeds,LS1 7BT Map

The Banquets are a unique sounding rock/pop trio based in Leeds. They have just started out on their musical adventure, and are ready to make 2020 the year they officially start getting their music out to the public!

The Banquets’ sound is a simple mix of rock, blues, and pop music, and they try to maintain the great tradition of British rock. The musical influences of the band stretch far and wide, and go right back to the early 20th century blues scene. Their sound is hugely impacted by the music that has flowed out of America over the last century, and like most British music, it reflects back that sound and rubs in some northern British magic. Although on the surface they might appear to be an acoustic outfit, they aim to make as big a sound as possible. Their sound often leans towards the ecstatic, and they pursue it at every opportunity. At the heart of the band’s music is the desire to make people happy. At the end of the day, they want to have a good time and want the crowd to have a good time with them.

Cat Una + Joe Kelly

May 6, 8:00pm - May 6, 11:00pm

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar41 Call LaneLeeds,LS1 7BT Map

Cat Una is an Indie-folk singer-songwriter of Irish/Italian decent. Spending her childhood days in a melting pot of culture, a love for music was born out of observing her Father and Grandfather playing jazz piano and saxophone, quickly spiralling into obsession and becoming a private vessel for the expression of emotions.

During her time at University, Cat Una had bagged herself a solo slot at the renowned Live at Leeds festival as well as airplay on BBC Introducing in West Yorkshire with 'Ivy’, a track she co-wrote with guitarist Mac Volpe, who still accompanies her to this day. As well as supporting artists such as Tom Williams and Jerry Williams on their UK tours, Cat Una was the first signed asset of pioneering not-for-profit label ‘Monomyth Records’, who have endorsed several releases which continue to be praised by the BBC introducing in WY team.

After a period of re-calibration involving the balancing act between working on a telephone switchboard by day, and crafting as well as performing a stream of stripped back shows by night, Cat Una is fast approaching the release of her latest single 'Wait it Out’. It provides a glimpse into the journey Cat has made over recent years, showcasing notable growth in both her confessional style of song-writing and advancement of her vocal prowess. Cat says of the new single, “I guess the crux of this one, for me anyway, is about when you close yourself off and don't ask for help when you probably need it the most”.

Backed by The Royal Pharmacy, debut LP Imperial Caravan sees the dustbowl-dry skeletons of Joe Kelly’s haunted blues and country songs fleshed out with an Americana sound ranging from lush to eerie. Cut live in the studio with minimal overdubs, no click tracks or samples, the album’s vintage sonics are augmented on three songs by Welsh singer-songwriter Bryony Sier, who adds spectral harmonies that somehow channel Emmylou Harris and Stevie Nicks.

Afternoon Americana41 call laneLeeds,LS1 7BT Map

We've been fans of daniel Lucas and his musical incarnation Boss Caine for a long time so we're really glad to get him down.

“Stunning UK talent!! Really something!!” – ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris (BBC Radio 2)

“Definitely one of the UK’s leading exponents of roots influenced music!” – Americana UK

“Like Ryan Adams singing Tom Waits if they had both had the good fortune to grow up in Yorkshire!” – The Fly Magazine

Boss Caine is the musical vehicle of award winning, permanently gigging, hard living, Sundown Sessions curating, Busk @ Dusk hosting, genre blending, troubadouring Yorkshire cowboy, songwriter, Daniel Lucas. Playing relentlessly, both solo and with various line ups of his incredibly talented musical collective, he has notched up literally thousands of gigs, playing bars, venues, theatres, festivals, house concerts, and more, all over the UK, supporting the very varied likes of Richard Hawley, The Wildhearts, Willy Mason, Beans On Toast, Tony Joe White, Guillemots, Justin Townes Earle, Shooter Jennings, Alabama 3, The Undertones, Arlo Guthrie and many, many more.

The Boss Caine sound is a unique blend of Americana music, drawing on influences from soul, bluegrass, country, folk, punk, blues, rock and roll and more, all tied together by Lucas's immediately identifiable, heart breaking, gravelly baritone vocal.

Celebrities such as Keith Allen, Russell Brand and Bill Nighy, have all been spotted at Boss Caine gigs.

In 2019 the British Library recognised Boss Caine as ‘an artist of cultural significance’, and keeps copies of the back catalogue in their Kings Cross exhibition centre, where they also keep original Beethoven manuscripts, and Beatles memorabilia!?!?

The latest Boss Caine release, 'Loved by trouble, troubled by love', has been receiving five star reviews the world over, and was included in several 'album of the year' lists by reviewers.

The Harriets

May 16, 8:00pm - May 16, 11:00pm

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar41 Call LaneLeeds,LS1 7BT Map

The Harriets are Daniel-Parker Smith (guitar and other instruments, baritone vocals, jawline) and Ben Schrodel (bass and other instruments, tenor vocals, Roman nose).

​They met at a party in Leeds when they were banging on about Johnny Marr and Paul McCartney respectively, and they’ve not found a good reason to stop since. Both songwriters that were in search of a band, they formed The Harriets as a means of collaborating on existing tunes and continuing to write more.

The Harriets sound features the bright and distinctive vocal harmonies of its two frontmen, and jangly retro-inspired guitar work. The band has played many gigs in its native Yorkshire as well as the International Pop Overthrow Festival in Liverpool's Cavern Club. They are also on the line-up for Bingley Music Live Festival in September 2017, alongside acts such as The Manic Street Preachers and the Kaiser Chiefs.
​
As well as honing their live show gigging, the pair work on regularly releasing self-produced singles, allowing them to give an airing to the more diverse material in their songbook. These have recently received airplay on BBC Introducing, and won funding and support from Higher Rhythm’s Breakthrough programme after being selected by a panel of industry experts. ​
