Indie-folk quintet Patch & The Giant headline an exclusive trailblazer ‘Folk Night’ at Selby Rugby Club on the May 19 ahead of the town’s inaugural Selby Arts festival.

The London based Indie-folk quintet Patch & The Giant were booked after Festival Director Dave Edmunds saw them at the boutique Deershed festival last year clocking the enthusiastic response to their set.

The band released their debut EP ‘The Boatswain’s Refuge’ on Folkroom Records in 2013 produced by BBC Folk Award winner and hotshot guitarist Ben Walker. National radio airplay led to sessions with the BBC’s legendary ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris, Bandstand Busking, and Songs From The Shed.

Their debut album, ‘All That We Had, We Stole’ came out at the start of 2017 showcasing their eclectic take on folk music fusing elements of indie, rock, blues and classic story-telling courtesy of lead singer Luke Owen.

Patch & The Giant band have been working hard on the festival circuit playing Green Man Festival, Secret Garden Party, Cambridge Folk Festival, Larmer Tree Festival, Wilderness and Deershed.

Support comes from Selby born and bred singer/songwriter Alice Simmons, who attends the Read School in Selby, and has already performed at major festivals including the Beverley Folk Festival.
