The acclaimed Hackney Colliery Band are heading to Cornwall for the 2018 St Ives September Festival.
The band, who have gone from success to success since appearing at the 2012 London Olympic Games closing ceremony, are one of a glittering line-up booked to appear at St Ives Guildhall during this year's September Festival.
The Hackney Colliery Band, who have also performed live sets at the MOBO, Brit and Mercury Awards, are the star attraction for September 15 - the middle Saturday of the 15-day Festival.
The band are looking forward to returning to Cornwall after previous appearances at the Hall for Cornwall and Lusty Glaze in Newquay.
"It?s alway a treat," said leader Steve Pretty. "We can?t wait to get back to Cornwall for the St Ives September Festival.
"Cornwall is one of our favourite places in to tour in the UK, with lovely audiences and, of course, incredible scenery - much appreciated on the long drive from east London!"
Last year their third album Sharpener went straight in at No.3 on the jazz charts and No.14 on the independent music charts and they have collaborated with Amy Winehouse and Jamie Cullum.
A New Orleans-style line up of trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone and two drummers, and a name which pays homage to the British brass heritage demonstrate that Hackney Colliery Band are rooted in tradition, yet sound thoroughly modern.
Rusty Shackle appear the following night with Daphne's Flight on Tueday the 18th and The Young 'Uns on Friday the 21st with Breabach closing the Festival on Saturday September 22.
September Festival chairman Mary English said: "We've booked some exciting performers who have not previously appeared in St Ives."
