Never miss another 'William The Conqueror' show
William The Conqueror, Jonas & Jane, Bryony Dunn
"William The Conqueror features acclaimed Cornish singer-songwriter Ruarri Joseph, with Harry Harding and Naomi Holmes making up the three piece band.
If you are familiar with Ruarri's solo material, William continues in a similar vein, with an indie/grunge feel channelling blues, folk and americana.
Drawing influences from bands and artists as diverse as The Doors, Ryan Adams and The Lemonheads. They have already made their mark across the pond in Nashville performing at the influential AmericanaFest.
The debut album "Proud Disturber Of The Peace" is released August 4th.
Support comes from Surrey based Americana duo Jonas & Jane and Bryony Dunn

Info provided by the Event Organiser
Cornwall trio William the Conqueror have been picking up praise from far flung corners ever since Ruarri Joseph took the step to go public with his erstwhile secret alter-ego. Debut album, Proud Disturber of the Peace, was released in 2017 to widespread critical acclaim, and their shows have been steadily winning over fans up and down the country.
The indie-rock three piece sees Ruarri joined by bassist Naomi Holmes and drummer Harry Harding, channelling classic blues and roots through a grunge/indie filter, with diverse influences including The Doors, Ryan Adams and The Lemonheads.
Praised for their grit and authenticity by the likes of The Guardian and NPR’s Ann Powers, they made their mark at AmericanaFest in Nashville, signing to Loose and sharing the stage at the UK Americana Awards 2017 with the likes of Van Morrison, Richard Thompson and Ethan Johns. Proud Disturber of the Peace was shortlisted for the 2018 UK Americana Awards "UK Album of the Year”.
