Under The Apple Tree presents: WILDWOOD KIN
www.undertheappletree.co.uk

Having tirelessly promoted emerging and cutting-edge music over his prolific career, broadcasting legend “Whispering” Bob Harris OBE today announced that he will be taking the much respected Under The Apple Tree Sessions out on the road with his newly announced Under The Apple Tree tour. The tour will be headlined by indie/folk trio Wildwood Kin and will also have regional acts handpicked by Bob for each show.

Wildwood Kin are a family trio whose sound is characterized by extraordinary harmonies. Their brilliant debut album, while influenced by their early folk leanings, delved deeply into their other genres, featuring both electric and acoustic instruments, and featured inventive sonics and spectral atmospherics alongside their three-part harmonies. They boast over 15 million streams as well as performances at various festivals across the world - including Latitude, Boomtown, Glastonbury and BBC Radio 2’s Hyde Park Festival In A Day. 

Curated by BBC Radio 2 and The Old Grey Whistle Test’s “Whispering” Bob Harris OBE, Under The Apple Tree is the UK’s foremost online/live platform for the very best in Country, Americana and Roots - the fastest growing genres in British music today. In the live arena, UTAT stages have popped-up at a plethora of events, including Country Music Week, C2C: Country To Country, BBC Countryfile Live, Silverstone Woodlands F1 Grand Prix, Black Deer Festival, Beavertown Extravaganza and at venues across the UK in partnership with Soho House & Co.

Bob Harris has been at the very heart of UK music scene since the heady days of the late 60’s. He has established a worldwide reputation as one of the most trusted and influential broadcasters of his generation - described by Radio Times as “...one of the greats of British contemporary music broadcasting” and by The Mail on Sunday as “a national treasure”. His peerless career has seen him acknowledged by a series of amazing awards. He is a three-time winner of CMA International Broadcaster of the Year Award, has twice won the prestigious Wesley Rose International Media Achievement 
Award and is an Americana Trailblazer. In 2011, Bob was awarded an OBE for his services to music. 

This tour brings Bob’s passion for music to the stage:
“I absolutely cannot wait to launch our inaugural Under The Apple Tree Tour. It is thrilling to announce Wildwood Kin as our headline act and exciting to know that we will be supporting great local talent as we play dates across the UK.”

The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email gigs@thefleece.co.uk for more details.
