We're very happy to be bringing you one of three UK shows from New Orleans outfit The Deslondes.
They've just hooked up with New West Records to release their brilliant Andrija Tokic (Benjamin Booker/Alabama Shakes) recorded debut. Featuring two members of Hurray For The Riff Raff, The Deslondes have toured with big hitters Alabama Shakes, Old Crow Medicine Show, Michael Kiwanuka, John Fullbright and Hurray For the Riff Raff in the States.
As if that's not enough, this is a co-headline show with the finest folk'n'roll band in the north east The Buffalo Skinners who'll be tearing up the UK festival circuit again this summer from Bestival to Wilderness.
