Edinburgh-based 5-piece The Wynntown Marshals formed in 2007 and have been described by the Metro as “arguably Scotland’s strongest band” and regarded by The Herald as “the best Americana band outside North America”.With three studio albums, several EPs, and a 10-year retrospective collection under their belts so far, the Marshals have recorded sessions for ‘Whispering Bob’ Harris’s BBC Radio 2 show, as well as BBC Radio Scotland sessions on ‘Another Country with Ricky Ross’ and an appearance on 'The Quay Sessions with Roddy Hart' in 2018.Their debut album “Westerner” was released in 2010 with the Belgian website RootsTime proclaiming it “the best alt.country album from Europe ever”, with the follow-up (“The Long Haul”) being placed at number 10 in the Sunday Herald’s list of the ‘Top 50 Scottish Albums of 2013’. Their next album, 2015's “The End of the Golden Age”, was awarded 8/10 in Uncut, who referred to the band as “colonising the shadowland that lies between Tom Petty and Teenage Fanclub”.In 2017, the band marked a decade together by releasing a 16-track retrospective entitled “After All These Years”, with Louder Than War awarding the compilation 9/10 and declaring that “The Marshals have been crafting songs of such high quality that they're surely a national treasure”, and that they are “miles above the competition at this sort of thing”.
