AN ENERGETIC and soulful trio will perform at Dorchester Corn Exchange on Friday, December 6, at 8pm.

Wille & The Bandits are a classic blues rock three-piece who add a unique edge to the genre, leaving an astounding impression on audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds.

Formed in 2010, the group is currently made up of Wille Edwards, Matthew Brooks and Andrew Naumann. The band have released five studio albums to date and combine traditional instruments with the more unusual, from the electric guitar and double bass to the bongo, dobro and djembes.

Wille & The Bandits perform regularly at festivals and events across the country, and were named one of the must-see bands at Glastonbury by BBC Radio 1 in 2014. Their first single, from their debut album New Breed, reached number two in the UK blues chart.

The band's latest album, Paths, was released earlier this year.

Tickets to see Wille & The Bandits are £13 or £11 for concessions, available from the Dorchester Arts website or box office, or in person at the Corn Exchange.
