ABOUT

Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a highly refined, internationally acclaimed, high-octane quartet that began life in 1992 when brothers Ben and Jon Salfield toured across the UK as a technical guitar and lute duo called “Ramas de la 'Ud” (Branches of the Oud).

There were sell-out duo concerts across Europe in the 1990s and early 2000s, highlights of which were two tours in Germany and one in Poland, which included an appearance at Zory Festival that was seen on TV by an estimated 12 million people.

Renowned world percussionist Simon Stanton joined in 2009 as they performed to at the Tolmen International Guitar Symposium. In the audience that day was a 10-year old fan, Rowan Nightingale. Seven years later he would make his debut on bass guitar the night before their sell-out show at Hay Festival. His arrival brought not only the beginning of the end of the world, but a new, edgier dimension to the ensemble...

The Horsemen released their award-winning album “Revelation” in 2017, ahead of performing to over 13,000 people at Home Park football stadium and dates across the UK, Germany, Poland and Hungary. Their DVD 'Rockumentary', “March on Nordhorn” has sold several thousand copies to date.
