Folk and jazz band CC Smugglers is confirmed to play at a Llangollen music festival.
The Bedfordshire sextet will bring their live show to Llangollen Fringe on Friday, July 14 – supported by Wrexham’s Heal the Last Stand.
Since their rapid rise to fame supporting two-time Grammy award winning Old Crow Medicine Show on their UK tour, CC Smugglers have been selling out venues, and stealing headlines at the Cambridge, Cornbury, and Glastonbury festivals.
CC Smugglers describe their sound as a mixture of American folk music, swing, jazz, country, ragtime and bluegrass with contemporary touchstones such as hip hop, metal, dubstep, house and dancehall.
The band have also been touring around Europe, playing many prestigious festivals, including Werchter Festival in Belgium – sharing a bill with Bruce Springsteen.
The band has collected many critical plaudits along their journey to success, including The Sunday Times culture section.
Llangollen Fringe 20th Anniversary Festival, which is supported by the Arts Council of Wales, takes place from July 13 to 23.
