Sweeney Astray

“Delightful mix of poetic balladry, catchy melody and meaningful lyrics” (BBC Radio Lancashire)

Melodic sunny indie folk act hailing from Manchester and Lancashire – Sweeney Astray have appeared at Ribchester Music Fest, Lytham Music Fest, Cloudspotting, Middle Earth Festival, Preston in The Park, Preston’s People Fest, as well as featuring on BBC Radio breakfast shows, supporting the likes of Dodgy, Jon Bramwell, King Creosote, Tom Hingley, Midge Ure and Smoke Fairies at north west venues. Singers Mike and Katie are full time professional musicians who gig and teach music on a daily basis as well as write songs – together they sing stories of love and nature. Perfect for a woodland setting on a mellow Friday when we’re all kicking out the working week and heading into the festival life…expect guitars, harmonies and lyrical beauty.
