WILDFLOWERS will be performing live at The Horn pub in St Albans this week.
Put together in April 2012 by former Bristol and now Brighton-based lead singer and chief songwriter, 21-year-old Siddy Bennett, they will be appearing at the Victoria Street music venue on Tuesday night.
Suitably labelled in an early reviews as “punk Dolly Parton”, Siddy’s style is freewheeling, strong, and you can hear the influence of Siddy’s tastes from White Stripes to Patsy Cline in the Wildflowers’ gutsy sound.
The band includes Siddy’s sister Kit on backing vocals, accordion and Hammond organ, and James Ashbury, Siddy’s long term co-writer, guitarist and mandolin player.
Support comes from Hertfordshire band Stolen Horse. Formed in late 2012, they blend a wide range of influences from folk, blues and singer/songwriter styles into an original new sound.
Herts four-piece The Neverists are also on the night’s bill.
Tickets for the 18 plus gig cost £4 in advance and £6 on the door.
They are available from www.thehorn.co.uk
