Live Music Session #115 – Henry Wacey + Jol Rose

Henry Wacey is a folk rock musician from Somerset’s artistic hub, Frome who has shared the stage with the likes of Mad Dog Mcrea, Beans on Toast, Funke and The Two Tone Baby, Nick Heyward and many more.

His experience and style landed him a slot at Glastonbury Festival in 2014, and a repeat booking for 2015. At the same time he released his debut EP ‘Here I Go Again’, embarked on his first solo tour and played other well-loved festivals that summer. In 2016 Henry released his second EP ‘On My Travels Again’, recorded with his backing band The Orchard Keepers. He ventured to America and Canada the same summer, playing shows down the west coast.

Since releasing the second EP back in 2016, Henry has headed out on a number of tours, with the hometown dates featuring The Orchard Keepers. The summer of 2019 saw him perform on the ‘Small World Stage’at Glastonbury Festival, and his first experience of playing Boomtown Festival also came in 2019 as well as supporting Mad Dog Mcrea for the Frome Festival.

Support from the Swindon legend Mr Jol Rose. Jol has performed his raw mix of Americana acoustic folk on moving trains, stationary flat-bed trucks and remote Pacific islands. Oh, and in The Tuppenny.
