From Let’s Eat Grandma to Luke Wright: Did you know these Norfolk acts were heading to Glastonbury Festival 2017?
East Anglian favourite Ed Sheeran is headlining Glastonbury on Sunday, but he’s not the only act from the region who’ll be performing at the festival.
Here’s a look at the singers, poets and politicians from Norfolk who will be taking to the stage at the UK’s biggest performing arts extravaganza:
Former Lynn Grove pupil, Connor Mullally, known professionally as Mullally, will be singing in The Rabbit Hole area at Worthy Farm. The musician recently signed a major record deal with Atlantic Records UK, which represents big names such as Clean Bandit and Charli XCX. His music style has been described as “neo-soul” and he is said to take influence from legends such as Marvin Gaye and Amy Winehouse.
The rock band, whose members hail from Hunstanton and King’s Lynn, will be performing on the Other Stage on Sunday between 12.15pm and 1.05pm. The band’s fourth studio album, All These Countless Nights was released in January this year and debuted on the UK Albums Chart at Number 5 while topping the UK Independent Albums Chart.
Let’s Eat Grandma
Norwich musical duo, Let’s Eat Grandma comprised of teens Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth will be performing at Williams Green on Sunday at 5pm. The pair released their debut album, I, Gemini, on June 17, 2016 through Transgressive Records and it includes songs such as Deep Six Textbook and Eat Shiitake Mushrooms.
The poet from Bungay will be performing at 8pm on Friday in the Glastonbury Cabaret Tent and in the Poetry Tent on Saturday at 4.15pm.
Luke began his performance career at the Norwich Arts Centre, aged just 17 and has since gone on to write and perform eight one man shows and publish various books and spoken word albums.
MP for Norwich South, Clive Lewis, will be speaking in the Left Field tent on Saturday lunchtime, as well as appearing on the main stage alongside Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn.
