Yay for the wonderful Ellen and the Escapades! The Leeds based alt-folk band fronted by Ellen Smith beat a whole lot of other bands to be crowned the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition winners and will get to play one of the main stages at Glastonbury this year (sorry, i wrote before it was the pyramid stage but it might not be, just any of the main stages!) This is such wonderful news and I feel very proud of them. I have seen them a few times live around Leeds and I put them as my New Treat while ago (see here) so its really good news that they are getting noticed now.
Also, Leeds Fest line-up tonight! 🙂
