THE Howl & The Hum are to perform a very special live-stream concert from York Minster on May 25.
York’s long-standing independent promoters Please Please You, independent York grassroots venue The Crescent and legendary Leeds venue and promoters The Brudenell [Social Club] are teaming up with the Chapter of York to present this one-off live performance by the York alternative rock outfit.
The show will be live-streamed at 20:15 (GMT) via ticket.co, and depending on Covid-19 restrictions at the time, a “very limited socially distanced audience may be able to attend”.
Indoor performances with reduced capacities could re-start from May 17 under the Government’s four-step roadmap out of lockdown, and so updates on this possibility will be delivered exclusively via the band’s mailing list.
Singer, songwriter and guitarist Sam Griffiths, bassist Brad Blackwell, guitarist Conor Hirons and drummer Jack Williams will perform a “unique set to compliment the unique venue”.
Last May, The Howl & The Hum released their debut album, Human Contact, whose prescient title chimed with pandemic times as such contact became more restricted through the alienating cycle of pandemic lockdowns.
Delighted to confirm York’s most ground-breaking band for a night in the Nave, at the fourth time of pencilling in a date, Please Please You’s Joe Coates says: “We’re very pleased to be able to bring some cheer to town at this time! Particular thanks to the Minster for being helpful and accommodating.”
The Howl & The Hum will be the first rock act to play York Minster since York singer-songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich on March 29 2019. Live-stream tickets are on sale via thehowlandthehum.com/.
