The Wandering Hearts – Live in Cambridge with Ward Thomas – Review

Concert: Ward Thomas, Restless Minds
Artists: The Wandering Hearts (Support)
Date: 7pm on Friday 1st March 2019
Location: Cambridge Junction


With the amount of British talent, we have in the Country music Genre today, we are defiantly ‘Building Our Own Nashville’. Friday Night at Cambridge Junction highlighted some of the amazing country music we are producing in Britain, and I couldn’t be any prouder to be British.

The Wandering Hearts and Ward Thomas are setting the standards high.

The Wandering Hearts (TWH) Album ‘Wild Silence’ was one of my favourites from last year and when I saw them live for the first time I was blown away. In January this year they released their ‘Deluxe’ version of ‘Wild Silence’ and this was my first opportunity to see them as a Trio now that Tim has left the band, with AJ, Tara and Chess continuing on as a Trio. It was also the first time my wife had got to see them live, she was not left disappointed.

The Wandering Hearts came on stage at 8pm and performed 7 songs in a 30 minute set.

For those fans that have purchased the ‘Deluxe’ version they will know that the Acoustic version of ‘Fire and Water’ has a lively different ending to the original Fire and Water on the debut album. It was this new version that TWH kicked off their set.

As TWH continued through their set I felt that their Harmonies shined through. After their opening number they followed with Till the Day I Die and Burning Bridges.

TWH then sang a new song called ‘Your Love Hurts’ which I instantly fell in love with and was singing along (quietly) to the chorus.

They continued the set with Rattle and Wild Silence before ending with a crowd favourite ‘Devil’.

You won’t be surprised to know that there are some new TWH fans out there now after last nights gig – my wife being one of them!.

Set List:
Fire and Water
Till the Day I Die
Burning Bridges

After their set TWH met fans at the Merch stand.
