Transatlantic Americana artist tours UK around festival appearances “One of the best live bands you’ll ever see”: Hype Magazine “Riff-driven guitars, catchy chorus’, gritty addictive vocals – straight up old school rock n roll”: Music Junkie “Absolutely cooking live. If you get the chance to see this lot play, grab it with both hands!”: Brighton News


Ryan Hamilton and the Harlequin Ghosts are thrilled to announce a short engagement of live shows in the UK around their confirmed festival appearances this year (with more festivals to follow).


Talking about his long held dream of playing UK festivals, Fort Worth, Texas based singer/songwriter Hamilton says: “Since I started playing music, it’s been a dream to play music festivals in the UK. I remember seeing the ‘Travis LIVE in Glasgow’ DVD and going, “Holy shit. I HAVE TO do that someday”. So, here we are… dipping our toes in our first UK Music Festivals, and I sincerely can’t wait!”


Once again to be released on Stevie Van Zandt’s ‘Wicked Cool’ label, Hamilton continues: “We’re right in the middle of recording a new album. I think we’ve finally found the right mix of Americana, Pop, and Rock n Roll. After a couple of years touring… and 1 successful album under our belts as this current incarnation, we found our identity, musically. I can’t wait to finish this album and share it with the world. I think it’s gonna be the thing to get us where we wanna go.”


Finally, Hamilton adds – “and before I get it on the socials that this isn’t strictly a full UK tour – we know & we’re working on correcting that by the end of this year – and THEN getting over to mainland Europe for more festivals and shows in 2021!”
