The acclaimed Hackney Colliery Band are heading to the 2018 St Ives September Festival.
Watched by a huge crowd at the 2012 London Olympic Games closing ceremony, they are the first headline performers booked to appear at St Ives Guildhall for next year’s September Festival.
The Hackney Colliery Band, who have also performed live sets at the MOBO, Brit and Mercury Awards, are the star attraction for September 15 – the middle Saturday of the 15-day Festival.
Last year their third album Sharpener went straight in at No.3 on the jazz charts and No.14 on the independent music charts.
They have collaberated with the likes of Amy Winehouse and Jamie Cullum and sold out clubs across Europe.
A New Orleans-style line up of trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone and two drummers, and a name which pays homage to the British brass heritage demonstrate that Hackney Colliery Band are rooted in tradition, yet sound thoroughly modern.
- 8.00 pm (doors open at 7.00 pm)
