• 'The festival represented excellent value for money and was enhanced by a genuine feelgood factor.’
  • ‘This event showcased more than just singers, but musicians and songwriters too who presented the best of what real and raw country music is all about.’
  • 'Usually there are some points to criticise about festivals… Here, you would be hard put to carp. The tree is now watered, may it grow and bear fruit!’

Whispering Bob Harris is delighted to announce the first of his brand new Under The Apple Tree Roots Festivals held at the prestigious Cadogan Hall in London.

The one-day festival will be a beautiful, intimate event featuring all of Bob’s favourite artists, bringing together all of the things his career has been built on – authentic, wonderful music in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

Already confirmed to appear on the main stage are Squeeze co-founder Chris Difford, Welsh songstress Judith Owen and her band, Patty Griffin, Ward Thomas, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Martin Longstaff and The Lake Poets from Sunderland, Nashville singer/songwriter Andrew Combs, who made a terrific impression at this year’s C2C festival, and acclaimed Wolverhampton singer/songwriter Scott Matthews. Up and coming acts also include BBC Introducing favourite Dan Bettridge and Lewis and Leigh, who combine their musical experiences from the Mississippi and Wales. More artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

Alongside the main auditorium stage, there will also be the chance to catch acoustic performances on a second, more intimate stage located in the main promenade.

“We are really excited by this line-up” says Bob Harris “It is a perfect balance between exciting new talent and established stars, and with many more artists to be added to the bill I think it’s a great way to start. We’re really excited to launch this new series of one day festivals and Cadogan Hall is the perfect place to do so – it’s a beautiful venue.”

The Cadogan Hall festival is the first in a series of plans to host other Under The Apple Tree events both in London and around the country. “Our intention was always to allow UTAT to grow organically as a brand” explains creative director Miles Myerscough Harris “We are committed to creating events that work for artists and the audience. Our Festival In A Day is one step in that direction”

Tickets go on general sale on Wednesday 29th June at 5pm, priced £45.00.




Set in a fantastic location in the heart of Chelsea Cadogan Hall has become one of London’s leading venues. The Hall’s 950 seats, excellent acoustic and luxurious surroundings makes it the first choice for some of the UK’s top orchestras, including the Hall’s resident orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic, as well as a favourite London destination for international touring orchestras. Cadogan Hall is the chosen venue for the world-famous BBC Proms Chamber Music Series and also offers a vibrant selection of contemporary, jazz, folk and world music events as well as talks, debates and conferences.
