Tickets are £5 in advance from, or £7 on the door.

Making their third visit to the UK, The Picturebooks, hailed as one of the best discoveries of 2015, are appearing at The Horn next Sunday, September 27.

The rock-blues-country duo comprise Fynn Claus Grabke and Philipp Mirtschink and are based in Germany but signed to an American imprint.

They are currently bringing their Imaginary Horse tour to the UK, named after the duo’s new album recorded in the same garage where the band refurbish and repair motorcycles and choppers.

The Picturebooks have already shared the stage with bands including 65daysofstatic and Millencolin.
