KNUTSFORD-based band Fine Lines will be bringing its roots-infused Americana to Knutsford Market Hall on Saturday, June 22 as part of the town’s music festival.

A stripped-back version of the six-piece band including frontman, David Boardman, will perform a 45-minute busking-style set at 11am, which will feature new songs from Fine Lines’ second album, ‘Gaslight Roses’, as well as fan favourites from its first offering, ‘Hour of Need’.

The band was approached by Jane Smyth, who runs Style Loft Boutique in the Market Hall and asked to play during Knutsford Music Festival.

Jane said: “I saw the group’s ‘On the Town’ video, which was filmed in Knutsford and thought that they would be a great addition to the Market Hall over the festival weekend.

“We were looking for an upbeat act to draw in the crowds and Fine Lines fit the bill perfectly. I contacted them on Twitter was absolutely delighted when they agreed to perform.

“I’m really looking forward to hearing them play live on the day.”

In true busking style, Fine Lines will be encouraging shoppers to part with their change. Any money raised on the day will be given to Knutsford Royal May Day.

David said: “Although I was born in Northumberland, I have lived in Knutsford for over 25 years and know how important the May Day Festival is to the town.

“Both of my daughters were in the Court this year and had an amazing day; it’s good to be able to give something back.”

The Market Hall gig will follow on from the band’s appearance at Mark Radcliffe’s ‘Folk at the Theatre’ event on Friday, June 21.

Fine Lines has a number of other gigs booked over the summer, including CarFest North, at Bolesworth Estate, near Tattenhall, on Sunday, July 28.

The band will join headliners, Clean Bandit and Tom Odell at Chris Evans’ popular festival.
