William the Conqueror

Stage 2 • Sunday

William the Conqueror’s bluesy, indie Americana has already seen them head out to Nashville to perform at AmericanaFest, share a stage with the likes of Richard Thompson and Van Morrison courtesy of a nomination for Song of the Year at the UK Americana  Awards, and sign to Loose Music, where they join an immensely impressive roster including Courtney Marie Andrews, Sturgill Simpson, Andrew Combs, The Handsome Family and Danny and the Champions of the World.

Their eagerly awaited debut album is called Proud Disturber of the Peace and will be out on 4th August. Recorded in sessions that took the band from Cornwall right up to the Isle of Lewis and back again, the album features the multi -instrumental talents of Harry Harding, Naomi Holmes, and Ruarri Joseph, a name many folk fans may remember from his acclaimed solo output.
