When Rivers Meet
Hot off the release of their critically acclaimed third studio album “Aces Are High”, award-winning rock duo When Rivers Meet, comprised of husband-and-wife Aaron and Grace Bond, are pleased to announce their “Aces Are High” Spring 2024 UK Tour.

The tour takes in eight concerts and starts at The Brook, Southampton on April 27th, and finishes at The Garage, London on May 11th. 

Lead singer, mandolin and violin player, Grace Bond is looking forward to touring the new album. “Aaron and I can’t wait to get back on the road in 2024 to tour the Aces Are High album,” says Grace.  The new songs are powerful and intense. They represent where we are right now as both writers and performers.  It’s an exciting journey and we look forward to sharing the ride with our dedicated fans.”

Since their formation in 2019, the husband-and-wife duo Grace Bond (vocals, mandolin, violin) and Aaron Bond (vocals, guitar), have been quick to prove themselves one of the most exciting names in British blues rock. Blending Rock, Blues, Americana, and Folk in a distinctly unique manner, they have been showered with many awards and accolades.

The Dusk Brothers
Dusk Brothers are a ‘dark swamp blues’ two-man-band from Bristol, UK.  

Since 2015 brothers Graeme and Iain (E) Moncrieff have, in every sense, been building their dark, gritty, bluesy sound from the ground up. Their visceral live shows have astounded audiences and begun to accrue a dedicated fanbase at gigs and festivals across the UK, including the acclaimed Buckle & Boots Country Festival in 2018 and the UK cigar box guitar festival Boxstock.  

The trademark Dusk Brothers sound derives from self-built guitars, percussive stomp-boxes with foot operated cymbals, various percussion instruments made from anything they can get their hands on (think old oil cans, pots and pans etc) and valve guitar amplifiers built from scratch in their own workshop. Combining all of that with growling vocal harmonies and blues harp, the brothers are two one-man- bands playing simultaneously to create an incredibly huge and distinctive sound.  

Dusk Brothers’ debut EP ’Storms, Rum, Liars and Guns’ was released on Saturday 16th Feb 2019 to critical acclaim and with a very hot, sweaty, buzzing and packed out launch gig in their home town of Bristol. The Moncrieff brothers will continue to play many more shows throughout 2019
