Scarborough indie band makes debut at Yorkshire whisky distillery session


A Yorkshire whisky distillery has announced its next Distillery Session artist.


Celebrated Scarborough guitar-based indie band, The Feens will make their debut on the Pot Still Coffee Shop stage at Spirit of Yorkshire's Distillery Session on 29thJune.


Spirit of Yorkshire Marketing Director, Jenni Ashwood, is delighted to welcome the band to the third of the 2024 programme of Distillery Sessions. She said: "Dubbed ‘the musical pride of Scarborough' by Soccer AM's Fenners, the band has firmly established itself as Yorkshire's guitar music torchbearer and is regularly featured on Radio 1 and 6 Music.


"They've opened for the Kooks, topped the iTunes chart and been lauded by Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens, but they've (probably) never played a distillery before. Our small and intimate space means they'll be playing a stripped-back acoustic set here for us and we can't wait."


Tickets for the event cost £15 and £25 with a Yorkshire deli board. They are available online at or by calling 01723 891758.


After garnering support from BBC Radio 1 DJs Jericho Keys, Phil Taggart and new music exemplar Huw Stephens, their standout single ‘Sunset' peaked at No.1 on the iTunes Chart and received plaudits from legendary 6Music presenter Steve Lamacq.


In addition to music events, tours of the Distillery are available seven days a week and home-made refreshments are served in the Pot Still Coffee Shop from 9.30 am - 4 pm Monday to Saturday and 10 am - 3 pm on Sundays.
