GENTLEMEN OF FEW
BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Finalists, Gentlemen of Few, play an eclectic blend of old-time bluegrass and classic rock with skillful vocal harmonies and powerful lyrics, performing their music with a raw passion and intense energy hardly to be believed, giving them an almighty sound that they’ve coined as “Nugrass”.
A band with five years experience of performing their shows to a plethora of welcoming audiences and dedicated fans across the UK in rooms and halls of both homeliness and esteem. The Royal Albert Hall, London; The Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone and The Forum, Tunbridge Wells to name a few, but the boys have found themselves at Tiree Music Festival, Scotland; Secret Garden Party and even supporting the likes of “The Blockheads”, “The Beat” and “Hayseed Dixie”!
9 piece London based folk band bringing an innovative, dramatic fusion of etherial female vocals, heart-wrenchingly evocative strings and upbeat ceilidh-esque stompers that will raise your roof as well as your boots! With lyrics reminiscent of dark fairytale and folklore imagery infused with haunting harmonies, they’ll have you heartbroken on your knees. Then, driven by the powerful force of a celtic backbone sliced with slick, goosebump inducing electric guitar, they’ll have you back on your feet and dancing to the spirits of your ancestors.
We are LA Underlined! We are an acoustic folk/rock band from London, with Liam Anderson on vocals and guitars and James Horsburgh on Drums. Their EP ‘Another Night In’ is now on sale and available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify!
‘Ivy Sutherland and her band will get you floating away and foot-stomping all in one go with their unique sound. Ivy’s involvement in the music world is ever expanding as a multi-instrumentalist across the world of jazz, classical, folk and pop. Joined on drums by Dan Latham and on mandola/guitar by Euan Ritchie their distinctive set up is an intriguing combination and helps to create their dark but dream-like sound.’
