All the action, on and off the stage
Arthur Rigby & the Baskervylles are an 8-piece Orchestral Pop band, and are one of the many new talents based in Leeds. The sound the band creates is a genuinely beautiful mixing pot of lush orchestrations, poetic lyrics, romantic melodies and powerful energy.
The music is the invention of front man and guitarist Benjamin, scoring songs for violin, piano, double bass, trumpet, trombone, Saxophone and flute. Originally a 2-piece, with drummer Alex joining Benjamin, the Leeds based duo used orchestral backing arranged on laptops with samples and programming, and eventually it grew to the 8-piece it is today. We welcome all 8 on to the BBC Introducing stage with open arms (if there's space!)
We support unsigned, undiscovered and under the radar bands and musicians.
