NORTHBOUND

Modern Acoustic Blues

Vocals, Harmonica, Guitar & Bass

HELLO

NORTHBOUND are a 4 piece acoustic blues band based in the UK, consisting of Vocals, Guitar, Harmonica and Bass.

 

We perform a modern take on traditional delta blues which includes a mix of original material and traditional blues songs. Our performances heavily feature authentic blues harp playing as well as slide guitar.

Our music harks back to the acoustic origins of blues and so they have a stripped back sound without electric guitars or drums, focusing on the songs rather than volume.
