Leather’o have played regularly in many York pubs (about 20 at the last count) including The Snickleway Inn (our favourite!), The Black Swan (yes, the home of the award-winning folk club) and the legendary Blue Bell on Fossgate. We’ve also put on our own shows at the Basement Bar, City Screen and The Bike Shed.
The band is increasingly playing outside York, including recent gigs in Scotland, The Lake District, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Leeds and villages in the Vale of York. We often play at venues along the East Coast, including Hull, Scarborough and Whitby.
Our festival credits include the last two years of The Galtres Festival, the Black Swan Folk Festivals in York in 2014-15-16 (we’ll playing on the main stage again in June 2017), Cornucopia (we’ll be back there again in 2017), Cleethorpes Folk and Cider Festival 2015 and 2016, and several regular beer festivals. We’re delighted to be playing at The Langdale Folk Festival in May and September 2017.
We’re pleased to be playing at several of the York city centre festivals through the year.
Leather’o played for many weddings in recent years in venues including Bedern Hall, Beningborough, The York Treasurer’s House, a giant teepee in a field, a nightclub in Leeds and a village hall in Hampshire. We have several weddings in the diary for 2017!
