Americana Day
Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra

Western swing, country blues, & ragtime band from Newcastle who draw on myriad influences from Bob Wills to Django Reinhardt, George Jones to Tom Waits – yet they ultimately sound like nobody else, that North Eastern Swing style that’s utterly their own and changing all the time.

The band tour the way bands should – widely and endlessly – winning friends and fans at each new show with notable performances at festivals like Glastonbury, Bestival, Wilderness and Cambridge Folk Festival. They’ve appeared twice on Radio 4’s Loose Ends, and had their music played by everyone from Marc Riley to Huey Morgan.

“Newcastle’s finest swing-honkytonk-rockabilly band” fRoots
