Besides being a headliner himself, he has also played support for a lot of artists over the years, like REM, Snow Patrol, Wilco and Neil Finn. Bands and artists who have supported Ed on his own tours include Magnet, The Magic Numbers and Feist, as well as a wide variety of emerging British talents, notably The Smoke Fairies and Hush the Many (Heed the Few).
Before going solo Harcourt played the bass and keyboards for Snug.
