Based in Shropshire and North Wales, The Innocent are one of the most popular and experienced acoustic acts in the country, covering a wide range of styles and genres, as well as producing their own original music.
They have played all across the world and are as comfortable playing classic songs from the 60s and 70s as they are playing modern rock and pop from the likes of Mumford & Sons, The Killers and Mark Ronson, all without ever losing the upbeat, folksy, Irish feel that makes them a truly unique act.
Alongside their vast library of covers, they also have a selection of original music and instrumental tunes to suit any occasion.
The Innocent started life in 2010, playing original music and garnering praise for their exquisite harmonies and evocative and mesmerising live sets. Since then, they have toured their original music across Europe and America and have had main stage slots at numerous festivals. They have supported acts as diverse as The Feeling, Example and Po'Girl, as well as some of their personal heroes in the alt-folk world such as Gregory Alan Isakov and Polly Paulusma.
In 2011, Adam was one of just 100 songwriters in the country to be selected to attend BBC Radio 1’s inaugural Musician’s Masterclass at Abbey Road.
Their new album 'Lost' will be released in June 2019, featuring performances from one of Wales' most celebrated orchestras, NEW Sinfonia.
The Innocent now offer several line-ups including trios featuring cello, ukulele or drums, and a four-piece party-band option with a DJ service available on request.
All line-ups feature:
Adam Howes - Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin, Kick Drum
Dhugal Fulton - Violin, Vocals, Percussion
In addition, The Innocent can be booked as:

The Innocent can also offer DJ sets at ANY event we perform at. Our drummer Will is the perfect DJ to finish off any event with a bang.
Adding our DJ can help keep things moving smoothly before, in-between and long after the live music has finished. He will tailor the music he plays perfectly to the tastes of you and your guests, meaning you can rest safe in the knowledge that your party will keep going right through until the last man or woman is standing!
