Edward II have been rocking festival stages for over 30 years.

Back in the nineties the band toured extensively across the globe touring world music, reggae and folk festivals on almost every continent before finally calling it a day in 1999.

In 2016 the band came back and released a brand new CD called ‘Manchester’s Improving Daily’.  The album received a plethora of positive reviews, including Four Stars in both Mojo Magazine and The Guardian. 

In 2021 the band followed up with set of tunes collected from the fields of Jamaica which was released in Summer 2021, titled Dancing Tunes, again to critical acclaim.

After another 8 years of touring festivals across the UK, including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival and Beautiful Days, the band have decided to take a break throughout 2024.

Tonight will be a celebration of the bands second coming and feature all the festival favourites, old and new, along with many of the friends who have been there along the way. Set in the midst of the Christmas break, this promises to be the party of 2023

Still upbeat, and with rock-steady rhythms, blazing horns, fabulous harmonies and fiery melodeon melodies, the band continue to amaze audiences across the UK and Europe.
