The Dunwells LIVE at UCSB (4/26/2013) – CLICK TO ENLARGE

A few weeks back, on April 26, 2013, British alt-pop quintet The Dunwells performed at UC Santa Barbara’s Storke Plaza. KCSB aired the performance in an hour-long special broadcast, which can now be streamed at your leisure. The podcast also includes Sheamus Nolan’s live interview with the band on his show, “Cue the Blues.”

The quintet, signed to Concord Records and hailing from Leeds, England, made their way out west after a recent stint at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Festival in Austin, Texas. Their free UCSB concert was presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures as its annual Student Appreciation Event.

Blending English rock and American roots music – including folk, Celtic and country – The Dunwells sound has been compared to the successful band Mumford & Sons, with whom they have shared the stage with on several occasions.
