A Band Called WandaA Band Called Wanda have just been announced as one of eight finalists in the 2013 Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition. The Galway-based indie/folk band were selected from 8,000 entries. Last month they made it onto the longlist of 120 artists, selected by 40 blogger judges.

Building up a steady following on the live music scene, A Band Called Wanda have previously supported artists such as David Gray, Alabama 3, Stornoway and The Coronas. Their debut mini-album, “Roses are Still Red”, released in 2010, received plaudits from radio stations in Ireland and abroad.
The band are currently working on their debut LP, due for release later this year.

The live finals of the 2013 Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition will take place on Saturday 6th April. The event will stream live on the official Glastonbury website at www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk. The winning act will then get the chance to play a main stage set at this year’s festival.
