Modern Acoustic Blues
Vocals, Harmonica, Guitar & Bass
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.
Originally formed as a trio late 2013 and gigging regularly from mid-2014 onwards, the band added upright bass in the summer of 2015 to complete their sound.
Pete Barlow - Vocals
Matt Timms - Harmonica
Mark Tomes - Double Bass

Northbound typically play blues festivals and acoustic festivals across the UK as well as music pubs and clubs.
The band members are located across the UK in Shropshire, Wiltshire and Staffordshire
