VIDEO: The Dunwells to play Sheffield and Doncaster - win tickets

Hit-making Brit bands often then try to crack America – but Yorkshire-based The Dunwells are doing it the other way around, writes Graham Walker

They have appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, recorded at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales studio and made a name for themselves at festivals across the USA.

But now the Leeds-based quartet, who will follow Blind Sighted Faith with forthcoming second album, Follow The Road, are back home to make a name for themselves with a UK tour.

We have tickets to be won to see them at either The Leopard in Doncaster, on April 4, or The Plug, in Sheffield, on April 5.

The Dunwells, brothers Joe and Dave Dunwell, plus cousins Jonny Lamb and Rob Clayton, are a mix of rock, pop and folk, with the voices of angels.
