Echo Town / Do Right Fear Nought / DJ Jack Rabbit Slim
April 6, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - April 7, 2018 @ 2:00 am£5 – £8
Echo Town comprises of siblings Ric and Rob Harrison. Unable to fit these two harmonious musical warriors into a general genre, they can only be described as Rock/Roots with a Tribal twist, a band who light up the audience with contagious happiness and incessant energy, who alone, posses the ability to create a full power sound with only two pairs of hands.
An Echo Town show takes the crowd on a journey of exhilarating multi-instrumental genius, showcasing combatant fuelled drumming from Rob, on top of ethnic didgeridoo playing and lap slide guitar from Ric, all accompanied with poignant and mindful lyrics. Well known for creating a conscientious party of lyrical chanting, foot stomping, jumping in the air, and bare foot dancing from an elated and loyal audience.
The brother duo are resolute in their mission to awaken the masses with music, using the stage as a platform to spread peace, love, and unity at a time where they believe music is the most powerful form of expression. They are well known for using their music to raise funds and awareness for organisations such as Sea Shepherd UK and Surfers Against Sewage.
After moving to the South-West in 2015 on a mission to spread their music further they were taken on by The Mojo Hobo Agency and released ‘Be Strong Troop On’ album in Summer 2016, following their release of ‘Come on Over’ in 2011, both of which were produced under Ric’s own label Wood Fire Ash Records. Since joining The Mojo Hobo Agency they have played top festivals and venues all over the UK and mainland Europe. They have had the opportunity to support bands such as My Baby (Netherlands), Xavier Rudd (Australia), Backbeat Soundsystem (UK), Ferocious Dog (UK), Dreadzone Soundsystem (UK) and Sound of the Sirens (UK). 2018 is set to see a third release from Echo Town.
“The ultimate festival band, Newquay-based brothers Ric and Rob Harrison get everyone dancing with their unique mix of slide guitar, djembe, didgeridoo and harmonica… a quintessential Cornish surfing soundtrack” – Cornwall Live
Support from Do Right Fear Nought – Brighton’s newest purveyors of off-kilter alternative rock music, bending dirty blues riffs and eloquent vocals into new and unexpected shapes.
