20:12 20/12/2012 Glendale Family Single Launch
The Glendale Family are a collective of musicians based in the North West, with members ranging from Scotland to Australia and a number of places in between. They can most aptly be described as a modern folk band, influenced by sea shanties, heroic figures, tall tales and the natural world. They are the purveyors of good vibes, with a clear motivation to share the energy they create whilst maintaining a gracious approach to their performance.
After touring the whole of Ireland in 2009, Scotland in 2010, England and Wales 2011 the band earned their stripes living on the road, playing serious folks clubs, allotments parties, a ferry on Loch Ness, busking the streets by day and gigging bars and venues by night. This led to building new friendships that ultimately led them to featuring on national Irish radio Station Dublin Fm and make exciting and memorable performances at this years Focus Wales, The Wickerman and Deer Shed Festivals. Along with their work for charity Music In Hospitals and their recent crowning as Busking Champions at the Marple Food Festival, The Glendale Family plan to release their Debut Single ‘Fitzcarraldo’ on 20/12/2012 at their spiritual home Telford’s Warehouse in Chester.
With support gigs planned alongside John Fairhurst, Washington Irving and a debut E.P. planned for march 2013 its boomtimes for the Glendales.
