The Seniors will be supporting critically-acclaimed vocalist Ren Harvieu at the Festival finale on Sunday September 29 at Torr Vale Mill.

Originally performing as a folk duo, Open Mic UK finalists Tom and Paul Senior formed The Seniors.

Earlier this year they released their debut EP ‘Country Folk In This Adorable Town’, which received 50,000 plays in the first six weeks on the prestigious Emeraz Music Platform. This summer has seen them play the festival circuit, and they are set to appear at the Salford Music Festival on September 26.
