Local duo Mulholland present a night of the very best of Americana/Alt-Country from Yorkshire’s finest on 14 April at The Basement. Come and be transported to another world filled with the acoustic sounds of guitars, banjos and fiddles and gorgeous harmonies from four bands from across Yorkshire with a common love of all things Country.
The lineup features Mulholland, Gracie Falls Steve Chapman-Smith and Steamtown.
With their influence reaching back to the heyday of singer/songwriters in the 60/70s, York-based Mulholland bring their own take on acoustic Americana with their close harmonies and self-penned country/rootsy material.
