Band Profile: Ralegh Long & The Primary Three

Joining Sid Griffin, Tim Wells, and latest addition to the Bands & Books Amnesty International fundraising 1st Birthday party BONANZA Al Hutchins, is Ralegh Long & the Primary Three.  

Ralegh is a Bands & Books favourite having attended our inaugural show in Mile End way back in 2011, and we're delighted to complete the circle by having him & his band top the bill at our birthday party! 

Ralegh Long is an English Singer-Songwriter, guitarist and pianist. He makes records and performs either solo or with the Primary 3 (Richard Ellis - Bass, Will Lamport - Drums).  His debut E.P, Sprawl (2011) was celebrated for 'Placing the enigmatic within the classically melodic'. (Sweeping The Nation) and was supported with a U.K tour with Thomas White (Electric Soft Parade / Brakes).

His follow up, 'The Gift' is released late September 2012 and is a solo record of baroque piano ballads. Often compared to cult British luminaries such as Robyn Hitchcock and Epic Soundtracks, as well as stateside bands such as The Db's,  Ralegh writes timeless melodic pop songs.

2013 promises the first full studio record with the Primary 3, which has the working title 'Set to Music'.

You can catch Ralegh Long, Tim Wells, Sid Griffin & Al Hutchins in a musical/literary/poetry smash-up on the 9th September at Power Lunches on Kingsland Road.

There are just 50 tickets available for pre-order, so be sure to get yours today - all proceeds from the night go to Amnesty International, meaning you can help fight oppression wherever it exists in this world whilst enjoying a superb night of live music and literature!
