The Dunwells - Mercury Lounge NYC

Article and images by Bill Kelly

Hailing from Leeds, England, composed of two brother, two cousins and a close friend, The Dunwells played a crisp set at New York’s Mercury Lounge on their way to being properly discovered by American audiences at the upcoming South By Southwest festival.  Sounding new but firmly rooted in the harmonized traditions of CSN and Mumford and Sons, the Dunwells demonstrated strong roots in the British-American folk rock, blues traditions that have pinged back and forth between the continents since the early days of the British invasion.  Featuring tracks from their premier album Blind Sighted Faith, the young band showcased soaring, five part harmonies and musicianship that would be envied by many more travelled bands.

Along with several sets at SXSW,  the tour will take them through Nashville, Denver and several stops in California before heading back to the UK.

The full tour schedule and links to their music can be found at the band’s website
