A Weston-super-Mare-based band which is forging a reputation as one of the best live acts in the area is headlining a hotly-anticipated gig in April.

Folk rockers The Leylines will perform at the Tropicana’s Reaper Bar, in Marine Parade, on April 1 at 7pm.

A fast-paced fiddle and the soulful voice of lead singer Steve Mitchell are the foundation of the band’s sounds, which have earned them a dedicated following in the South West.

The Leylines are returning to the Trop after topping the bill at the Hazy Days festival last summer, where they wowed a sizeable crowd.

Songs like Let It Go and Sat In A Field are the soundtrack of a Somerset summer, and this gig will be the perfect remedy to the winter blues as the days get brighter and longer.

Tickets, priced £5.80 in advance or £8 on the door, are available from www.facebook.com/thereaperbar
