KNUTSFORD band Fine Lines will appear at this year’s Pub in the Park festival on Saturday, June 8, alongside Glaswegian pop rock giants Texas and hip-hop group Stereo MCs.

It’s the second year that the roots-infused Americana band has played at Tom Kerridge’s famous food, drink and music festival, and singer and lead guitarist, David Boardman can’t wait to return.

He said: “We had an incredible time last year joining the likes of Mel C and Razorlight on stage and are hugely flattered and very excited to be asked back again.

“This year we will be playing tracks from our new album, ‘Gaslight Roses’, some old favourites from ‘Hour of Need’ and maybe even a cover.”

2019 is shaping up to be a good year for the band. As well as releasing its second studio album and heading out on tour with folk rock band, Merry Hell, Fine Lines notched up its first play on national radio earlier this year.

Tom Robinson played new track, ‘My Time Again’, which was penned by David and bandmate, Mark Radcliffe, on his Saturday night BBC Radio 6 Music show in February.

“We were absolutely thrilled that Tom Robinson played us on his show, it was definitely a highlight of our career so far,” said David.

The six-piece band, which also features fiddle player, Emily Doggett, singer, Zoe Blythe keyboard player, Gary O’Brien and bassist, Anthony Jardine, has been together for three years and rehearses regularly at Knutsford Little Theatre.

David added: “Pub in the Park is very much a home gig for us and we are hoping to see lots of familiar faces in the audience.”

This year’s Pub in the Park takes places at The Lambing Shed from June 7 to 9. Fine Lines will be playing at 7pm on Saturday, June 8.
