Feel Good Festival 2019: Between the Vines

Date published: 10 August 2019

This year’s ‘Feel Good Battle of the Bands’ winners, Between the Vines, had a superb response after playing the main stage for the first time.

Formed in 2014, the country rock four-piece have enjoyed gigs across Greater Manchester and Yorkshire and are thrilled to play their biggest ever show in their hometown.

Excitement clear to see, vocalist Rebecca Whitehead said: “It feels like everything has fallen into place this year. We were positively overwhelmed at winning the Battle of the Bands in June.

“This is the biggest stage we’ve performed on. Meeting Dave and Norman [two other members] was a perfect fit.”

Her husband Kev added: “It’s great, because we are from Rochdale. We’ve been to the Feel Good each year, so to be playing this time is just an honour.”

Named for a love of red wine, Between The Vines have previously played at Street Eat and the Rochdale Food & Drink Festival and have just finished writing material for their second album.

Their first, 50 Ways To Beautiful, was released in 2018, a country-rock mix of original material.

Rebecca added: “We’re really excited for our next album and getting back into the studio. I love the stories country music tells, and I’ve got a very vivid imagination.”
