An evening of beautifully crafted Cosmic Americana with Americana UK Award Winners The Hanging Stars – undoubtedly currently the hottest ticket on the UK Americana scene, fresh with their critically acclaimed, new chart bound album “On A Golden Shore”. Welcome to the
mind-blowing world of The Hanging Stars!

We’re delighted and incredibly excited to welcome this stunning band back to Portsmouth following their storming show last year. Blending folk pastoralism with swampy 60’s Americana, The Hanging Stars sound like the missing link between the California desert sun and the grey skies of London Town. The Hanging Stars channel the sounds of The Byrds, Big Star and The
Flying Burrito Brothers with hints of Mojave 3 and The Allah Las – mainlining the dying embers of the early 70s psychedelic folk and cosmic country scenes.

“Hazy desert dreams of songs, nicely sharpened with steely-eyed guitars and Mersey-laced harmonies – a shimmering sliver of post-summer brilliance!” (The Guardian)

With the bands epic offering “Hollow Heart” crashing into the upper echelons of the official
Americana charts, the start of 2023 has been a rollercoaster for The Hanging Stars, starting at the Americana UK Awards, where they received the Bob Harris Emerging Artist of 2023 Award, presented by Bob himself.

Robert Plant was also present and stomped and clapped along as the band tore through a couple of songs to much acclaim from an audience of their peers. This was followed up this year with a nomination for “Live Act Of The Year”, and their new album “On A Golden Shore” gaining rave reviews from all the major national publications.
