High Horses FREE
High Horses' set was full of electrifying harmonies, haunting blues melodies, and uplifting songs that continue to play in your head long after the event finishes. This is a band that I could watch for hours and still feel like I was hearing them for the first time, a real credit to the live music scene in Birmingham. Adam and Simon are easily recognisable; the former with dreadlocks flying frantically and mandolin in hand, the later with a voice so deep and gravely that takes on a life of its own. The six musicians on stage all give a deeply passionate performance. The sound of the mandolin, saxophone and violin gives the band a unique folk sound against the rock and blues guitar riffs from the guitars, and the overall effect is overwhelming. I’ve heard ‘Pencil Full of Lead’, ‘That’s Love’ and ‘This Moment’ before when the pair have performed acoustic sets in Birmingham but as a full band there’s nothing to match them.
