Edd Donovan & the Wandering Moles
Hobgoblin Stage and Wychwood FM Stage, Saturday 2016
Originally from Merseyside, Edd Donovan has made Cheltenham his home being described as “a highly distinctive singer and songwriter with a rare, original talent. His sound is heartfelt—comforting, yet challenging— wise.”
Ed is about to release his second album, Making Mountains (Vol. 1) as a follow up to critically acclaimed début album Something To Take The Edge Off. Alongside his collective of musicians The Wandering Moles, it features intricate arrangements, rhythmic shifts and close harmonies that recall classic artists such as The Band, Crosby, Stills and Nash and Nick Drake.
