The Horse Puppets

Thu 04 Jul 2024 | 8pm | tickets £10

The Horse Puppets is the new name for The Retrosettes, a folk/roots acoustic group from Manchester. The band have recently returned from a European tour supporting Simply Red. Their rich instrumentation, compelling performances and unique sound has made them firm festival favourites. They also feature regularly on alternative music stations such as BBC 6 Music.

The band had a simple YouTube clip online that was seen by Italian film director Paolo Sorrentino. They appeared in the opening scene of the film 'Youth', joining Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel in the first shots of the movie.

From the popularity of the film in Europe, the band went on to release an album through Universal Germany and Live Nation, which became album of the week on multiple German radio stations.
