The final line up has been announced for Richmond’s live music festival, which is to take place in Richmond Castle later this month.
Headlining the event are two acts that are already commanding international respect, Clock Opera and Seye.
London based Indie rock band, Clock Opera, were formed in 2009 releasing their debut album, Ways to Forget, in April this year. The quartet’s music will be familiar to Olympic 2012 viewers – their track ‘The Lost Buoys’ was used as background music by the BBC.
Nigerian born Seye has already played with KT Tunstall, Ellie Goulding and the Noisettes – and spent two years on the road as Paloma Faith’s guitarist. The 21 year old’s work fuses his love of the great singer songwriters with afrobeat and pop.
Local bands Rosie, My Lost Youth, Pandora and the Wolves, The Enything, Borneo Punks, The Bass Thieves, TGM, Since Warning, You Had Me At Hello, Summer City, White Rose and Aurora will also be playing.
‘Castle Calling’ returns to Richmond Castle on August 31 after a two year gap. The event – aimed at young people - open to anyone over the age of 11 and strictly alcohol free – is run by Richmondshire District Youth Council with support from the District Council.
The festival runs from 6 – 10.30pm (doors open at 5.30pm).
Tickets - priced £6 in advance (£8 on the gate) – are available from Richmond Tourist Information Centre, Richmond Youth Centre (at Richmond School), Richmondshire District Council Community Offices in Richmond, Colburn, Reeth, Hawes and Heyburn and online at www.wegottickets.co.uk
