Fresh from the release of their highly acclaimed, Top 5* debut album, ‘Solace’, Held By Trees are excited to announce live dates this October [all dates below]. Praised by music journalists around the world, the live iteration of David Joseph’s instrumental project will include album contributors Robbie McIntosh on guitar, Laurence Pendrous on piano, and Andreas Panayi on flute and clarinet. Augmenting the line-up is James Grant on bass, Paul Beavis on drums and additional guests sitting in at different shows.

“Rehearsals have been going really well and we’re all having a great time bringing these pieces of music to life, allowing them to breathe and go to new places,” said Joseph. “We can’t wait to meet our audience at these dates and show them new material we are working on as well.”

Held By Tree’s first foray into the live music scene starts at the famous Half Moon in Putney, London 26/10, continues to Bournemouth’s St Luke’s Church 28/10 and then on to Dareshack in Bristol 29/10. Support acts will be announced in the coming months.  
* Solace charted at Number 4 on the Indie Breakers Chart and Number 23 on the main Indie Chart
