SRF 2017: Peter Bruntnell

You’ve patiently waited for the first line-up announcement and we’re ready to share:

Peter Bruntnell & Band

Static Roots Festival 2017 (9th/10th June 2017) is going to see the brilliant Peter Bruntnell with his band!

“If we lived in a just world, Peter Bruntnell would by now be in the middle of his third or fourth global arena tour, his biggest worry working out how to courier his latest armful of Grammy awards back to the UK so his butler could have them installed in the west wing of mansion by the time he got home.” – The Guardian

“Peter Bruntnell’s records should be taught in schools” – NME

“One of England’s best kept musical secrets” – Rolling Stone

“Eine strahlende Sternstunde des gepflegten, gitarrenlastigen, harmonieverliebten Americana, eine gelassen-reife Lehrstunde in Sachen Songwriting, ein berückender Melodienreigen, der nachhaltig zu Herzen geht. Hier ist nicht der rechte Ort, um über den unglückseligen Umstand zu lamentieren, dass der beeindruckend begabte Brite seit Jahren, ja Jahrzehnten zu den unterbewertesten/übersehendsten Artisten seiner Zunft zählt” – Glitterhouse

“One of the finest songwriters in Britain” – The Independent

“Bruntnell has a remarkable knack for turning out big, dreamy, melodic, memorable songs” – MOJO

“one of Britain’s finest and most overlooked songwriters” – The Line Of Best Fit

“Back on relatively familiar Americana-powerpop turf, superlative songs such as the Trump-berating Mr Sunshine and the teardrop-gorgeous Caroline prove yet again that – cult status or not – Bruntnell is up there with the very best.” – Irish Times

“His songs are warm and beautifully radiant” – Uncut
