Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the success of their debut album Wild Silence, folk-Americana group The Wandering Hearts have announced a UK headline tour in November/December, including a London show at Islington Assembly Hall on Wednesday, November 28, 2018.

Having already sold out three London headline dates, most recently Bush Hall, this will be the band’s biggest performance yet.

In June, the band will be making their US live debut performing at two of Nashville’s most iconic venues, The Grand Ole Opry and The Ryman, both at the personal invitation of country music legend Marty Stuart.

The Wandering Hearts will also be performing at a string of UK summer festivals this year, including BST Hyde Park headlined by Eric Clapton on July 8.

In February, the band won the coveted Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award at The UK Americana Awards 2018, a prize handpicked by the legendary broadcaster himself. They performed their song, Burning Bridges, at the awards ceremony, and joined Imelda May, Mumford and Sons and Robert Plant on stage for a rendition of the late Tom Petty’s Wildflowers.
