9/9/20 This Event is currently under review to whether it can go ahead as planned so sales are paused in the meantime - Full updates to follow soon.
RE-ARRANGED DATE from Friday 5 June 2020. ALL TICKETS PURCHASED for that date will remain valid for this date.
The Wynntown Marshals are known as Britain's number one country-rock band and in the eyes of many top critics and reviewers have put it - Europe's top Americana band - a title that all who hear and know them will find difficult to argue with.
After decades of performing and recording it is our pleasure to welcome them to the home of Rock in West Lothian - Dreadnoughtrock.
'The Wynntown Marshals’ lyrics are never throwaway, the subject matter often obscure. World-weary yet uplifting melodies are channelled via strident guitars and gorgeous vocal harmonies, offset by beautiful keyboard parts, and driven by a rock-solid rhythm section. There’s something for everyone with the Marshals - nostalgic lyrics collide with jangly guitars and killer pop hooks, powerhouse guitars, plaintive pedal steel guitar, and washes of Hammond organ.'
For the uninitiated, they are a band who will have plenty of appeal for fans of artists such as The Jayhawks, Tom Petty, Richmond Fontaine, Ryan Adams, Neil Young and many more - perhaps even including Gram Parsons!
Suffused with many elements of Americana but the observant listener will also recognise a more than a passing likeness to the sound of fellow countrymen Del Amitri.
The Marshals invite you to pack your bags and get on the next bus to Wynntown - a small, homely place populated by down-to-earth, hard-working types, where a fist-fight is often followed by a bear-hug, and lost love and heartache might be only a drink away.
