Forest Folk and Roots present The Hardy Band + Starlings & Sparrows

Formed in 2015, The Hardy Band are a six piece folk-americana band from Leicester - having influences from many genres of music, they have found themselves creating a fresh blend of melodic, foot stomping, country-pop.

Their sound combines the melodic guile of the folk romantics, the savage twang of the west coast hepcats and the joyous stomp of an Americana tinged barnburner,

Over the three years of being together, The Hardy Band has released two EPs, “The Hardy Band” and “Son of the Rising Dog”.

Their influences shine through in their music from the best of Americana to their deep love of the giants of American folk rock, from Dylan to CSN&Y and Emmylou Harris to Pete Seeger.

Melodic, Romantic, Lustful, Exuberant, Daring and Gritty - they are they are like the Everly’s on steroids at a country-punk hoedown.
