Formed in early 2018, four piece Americana band The Blue Highways have quickly cemented themselves as a fixture on the Americana scene in the UK. Having built a reputation as a commanding live act driven by big vocals, close harmonies, and narrative led songs, they’ve already supported some of the biggest acts in the genre including Iris Dement at the Sage Gateshead, and Bennett Wilson Poole on their first UK tour.
The band also appeared at numerous festivals over the past 12 months including AmericanaFestUK, Summertyne Americana festival, Millport Country Music Festival, Noshville and Wild Tweed and are regulars on the London gigging circuit having recently played with The Fargo Railroad Co, Speedbuggy USA and Matt Woods and the Natural Disasters.
They recently performed a showcase set at the Americana Music Association music festival, and recorded a session with ‘Under the Apple Tree’, which was played live on Chris Country Radio by both Baylen Leonard and Miles Myerscough-Harris on UTAT’s weekly show, curated by Bob Harris. Further to these shows, in March they appeared at Country2Country at the O2 in London, followed by a slot as part of Under The Apple Tree’s first ever UK tour, in London at the O2 Academy Islington supporting Wildwood Kin.
