The six-piece band Opaque performed as part of our Friday Night Showcase in 2018 and we loved them so much we invited them back to play again in 2019. The band is an eclectic and genre-defying act who fuse elements of folk, swing and gypsy into their impassioned and engaging performances. Originally formed in 1999 in Peterborough, UK, their originality and flair has earned them both national and international acclaim. Their shows across Europe included support slots for Biffy Clyro, Kasabian and the Kooks, and garnered wide ranging admiration for the band from musicians and fans alike.
