The Hereford Live group have been meeting regularly, discussing ideas and planning strategies to revive live music in the county. The group is formed of bands, venue owners, promoters and music fans who would love to see a return to Hereford playing hosts to touring household names.
“Hereford is no stranger to best-selling artists; bands from the Rolling Stones, Manic Street Preachers, Stereophonics and The Beautiful South, to Pulp, James, Two Door Cinema Club and The Wombats have played in Hereford over the years.” said Anthony Murphy of The Jailhouse. “Some of them played in the county during sell-out tours, others have played to small groups of people before they were signed or became household names. There are some incredible artists in Herefordshire, many of whom are destined for great things. We want to get as many people as possible to support the live music scene we have in Herefordshire – not only will they be seeing the talent of tomorrow now, it will help us to stage bigger events in the future too.”
Following their successful launch night at The Jailhouse on Wednesday 25th September- the team are back with their next live night and wide array of local talent. This Saturday January 11th The Jailhouse, Hereford is home to Hereford Live’s New Year Showcase.
