Willie and the Bandits - described as ‘one of the country’s best live acts’ and ‘one of the top 10 bands at Glastonbury’ play Hartlepool this month.

The acclaimed band appear live at Hartlepool United Supporters’ Club on Saturday, February 17.

The group release their new live album Living Free this month to coincide with a European tour to promote the record.

The album will only be avaliable at live shows to start, with so audiences can buy the performance they have just witnessed.

Wille and the Bandits are known as a band who mix award-winning musicianship with intoxicating songs.

They deliver their message by the power of song, but they can rock out with the best of them, as tours with Deep Purple have proven.

But their softer side has almost poetic, anthemic qualities which draw comparisons with Bob Dylan and Ben Harper.

Fans of bands from Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd to Pearl Jam and the John Butler Trio are advised to check them out.
