Last September saw Thornaby-on-Tees’ very own Cattle & Cane release their much anticipated debut album ‘Home’ and celebrated with their biggest headline show to date, a sell-out performance at Teeside University in Middlesborough.
They followed up their recent album launch with their first ever headline tour of the UK back in October 2015. With numerous sold out dates, the band are now heading round the UK again, beginning February 2016 – and this time the band will be heading to Lincoln.
Cattle & Cane are a band made up of four siblings – Joseph Hammill, Helen Hammill, Fran Hammill, Vin Hammill, and family friend Tom Chapman – who began creating music together five years ago. Lead singer Joseph, and Helen have always had a love of music.
“Me and Joe have played music ever since we were very little, and it was really very natural to start a band with the other siblings because we were all so musical,” said Helen. “It just happened naturally.”
Helen describes their music as very harmony-led. “We’ve got the three sibling harmony across the front, and there’s elements of folk, blues, americano and country. We just take influence from loads of different music and just make what we are.”
Being a mixture of four siblings, each of them have different taste when it comes to their own personal taste in music which Helen describes as being ‘great’ when they come together to write their songs and she said it ‘keep it fresh and exciting’.
So soon after their last tour Cattle & Cane are already ready to get back on the road and tour again. “We can’t wait to get back out again, we love touring the album and getting to play it to as many people as possible. Nothing beats playing live to an audience.”
Cattle & Cane have never been to Lincoln before and look forward to their first visit and to show Lincoln what their music is all about and show off their new material to the crowd.
Cattle & Cane will be playing live at the Engine Shed on Thursday 11 February. Doors open at 7pm and tickets cost £10 from engineshed.co.ukTweet
