Cornwall trio William the Conqueror have been picking up praise from far flung corners ever since Ruarri Joseph took the step to go public with his erstwhile secret alter-ego. The band's debut album, Proud Disturber of the Peace, was released in the summer to widespread critical acclaim, and their shows have been steadily winning over fans up and down the country. After a summer of festivals, followed by a tour opening for Loose label-mates Danny & the Champions of the World, the band are now readying themselves for a run of headline shows.
The indie-rock three piece sees Ruarri joined by bassist Naomi Holmes and drummer Harry Harding, channelling classic blues and roots through a grunge/indie filter, with diverse influences including The Doors, Ryan Adams and The Lemonheads.
Praised for their grit and authenticity by the likes of The Guardian and NPR’s Ann Powers, they made their mark at AmericanaFest in Nashville, signing to Loose, and going on to pick up a nomination at the UK Americana Awards 2017, where they shared the stage with the likes of Van Morrison, Richard Thompson and Ethan Johns.

Potteries Blues Club sunday afternoon concert witb support by acoustic blues duo Jaxhill...2-5.30pm. £7.50
Billed as Kossoff - The Band Plays On..., Terry Slesser has put together a fine ensemble of high-calibre musicians to pay tribute to the legendary guitarist Paul Kossoff.
This is not your regular 'tribute' act, as Terry was vocalist in Kossoffs' post-Free outfit Back Street Crawler for their entire lifespan. This marks the first time since the seventies that Slesser has taken the Back Street Crawler catalogue (and some choice Free tracks) on the road.
Front-man Terry Slesser sure knows how to captivate an audience. He's got some seriously entertaining anecdotes in his armoury which are all delivered with style and panache.
Guitarist John Buckton has the Kossoff sound down to an absolute tee and that's no huge surprise when you consider that Free drummer Simon Kirke has said "If Free were to reform, John would be my first choice as guitarist."
Buckton has captured the soul and rawness of Koss' playing - Paul Kossoff had his own unique / standout style and it lives on in John Buckton's fretboard.
Also Included in the line-up is former UFO, Wild Horses, Uli Jon Roth and Pat Travers' drummer Clive Edwards.
Dave Chapman on Keyboards and Rick Hunt on bass complete the line up.
Paul Kossoff was revered by music fans and fellow musicians alike and his music shone through along with his personality ...all brought to life in a show of sheer quality which pays homage to the highly talented and much missed guitarist.
