The announcement that the performer – who in the past year has appeared alongside everyone from the Libertines to Noel Gallagher – will take to the stage on Saturday 20 August has been warmly received by fans.
And it will be another chance to see one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming artists at the festival, following on from his previous appearance last year.
Andrew will join the stellar first-day lineup at Hardwick Hall, Sedgefield where fans will also be able to enjoy headliners The Stereophonics, as well as performances by Jake Bugg and American blues singer, Seasick Steve.
John Adamson, of Hardwick Hall said:
“It’s absolutely fantastic to have Andrew back at Hardwick Festival as his career has gone from strength to strength over the past year. He’s been named as one to watch and since he last appeared he’s has done amazingly well, including touring with Paul Weller twice. This is a great opportunity for people to see one of the most exciting new talents to emerge from the North East.”
