We’re excited to be helping Lucy & the Caterpillar launch her new EP!

Lucy-Caterpillar-Castle-Manchester

Lucy & the Caterpillar is a name you might be familiar with, having been a regular around the north’s music scene a few years ago, earning herself much mainstream press in the process and playing alongside the likes of Adele, Florence and Laura Marling among others.

After taking a brief hiatus, spending time opening her own vintage boutique shop in Hebden Bridge – which is also named ‘Lucy & the Caterpillar’ – and launching her own clothing label Lucille, Lucy is now back with new music, and better than ever.

The first tracks included on the forthcoming Coming Back Home EP demonstrate a refined vocal and Lucy’s most intimate lyrics to-date.

An impressive return.

This show marks the launch of her new EP, with both Xfm and BBC Introducing having already shown renewed support.

Main support comes from new Manchester group We Were Strangers.

Opening the show is Olympian, aka Manchester-based singer-songwriter Aron Robinson.

Book tickets now. Tickets are available from Common (no booking fee), Piccadilly Records, Vinyl Exchange, Seetickets.comWeGotTickets.comTicketline.co.uk and on 0871 220 0260.
