We are delighted to confirm that the second band playing our August 11th gig will be Leeds’ own Jimmy Islip & The Ghosts. Jimmy has played in some legendary Leeds bands, toured the world in them, not to mention his contribution to the Leeds music scene as one of the brains behind the institution that is the Out Of Spite festival.
But never mind all of that, lets just focus on Jimmy and his new backing band The Ghosts (who between them number some pretty special local artists!). Playing haunting americana but with a real Yorkshire influence and sound, Jimmy’s new album ‘The Wild West Riding’ is out now so pick up a copy and learn the words before the gig.
Have a gander’s at thus video of Jimmy performing solo and prepare for the announcement of our headliner soon!
