Ward Thomas

19.10-20.10, Stage 1 • Friday

Hailed as 'Britain's first country stars', Ward Thomas are 22 year old twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas, a modern country music duo producing modern country music with a British twist.

Begun for fun while they were at school, their unexpectedly successful 2014 debut album 'From Where We Stand', was released as an experiment on their own label and went on to win UK Album of the Year at the British Country Music Awards.
In 2016, Ward Thomas announced a joint venture with Sony Music and their second album, 'Cartwheels', reached number 1 in the UK Albums Chart, making Ward Thomas the first UK country act to top the charts.
