WUCAN SET TO FLAUNT THEIR FLUTE AT DESERTFEST 2017!
Wucan are simply a prog-head and retro rocker’s dream. Powerfully soulful vocals, flute that can be delicate and funky in equal measure and Hammond organ/guitar battles that reek of well-used bong water permeate the air surrounding this Dresden four piece.
Garnishing this tasty stew is the multi-instrumental talents of front-woman Fran Diabola, confidently leading songs which can deviate between hard rock, folk, space rock, eastern mysticism and anywhere else she cares to take them. Guitar and rhythm section follow faithfully to weave a tapestry of delights that honours the progressive rock heroes of yore while still possessing undeniable character of its own.
Wucan keep good company. Frequently sharing stages with the likes of Blues Pills and Kadavar, they are one of the essential new bands keeping the flame burning for classic rock, sounding like Jethro Tull jamming with King Crimson and Captain Beyond. Don’t miss them at Desertfest 2017!
