The Leylines / The Swamp Stomp String Band / DJ Kobayashi
March 16, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - March 17, 2018 @ 2:00 am£5 – £8
The Leylines are a west-country collective established in 2013, with a genre-defying, eclectic sound that ranges from traditional folk to full blown festival rock.
The Leylines was founded by a group of musicians wishing to combine their individual musical styles into something that isn’t quite folk, sort of punk, 100% heart-pounding revelry. This unique sound, combined with frontman Steve Mitchell’s lyrics centred around life on the road and the state of society, has launched the band into the heart of the live music community and made them firm favourites of the festival circuit.
With a fiercely loyal and ever-growing fan base, The Leylines guarantee to have their audiences up on their feet – and they will be having as much fun as their audience while they’re doing it!
The Swamp Stomp String Band are not your average Americana band. Twangy Banjos, driving Guitars and a thudding Double Bass sit behind anything from drinking songs that’ll have the room stomping their feet and shooting tequila to ballads that’ll break even the most toughest folk, to ragtime songs of bar fights and gambling. The London based duo can often be found busking by the side of Thames in the day and performing in any haunt from high end cocktails joints to dimly lit dive bars at night.
Taking a mixture of Jazz, Country, Swing, Blues and Ragtime – it is safe to say their music is there to be enjoyed by people young and old, rich or poor, or who just love to stamp their feet and have a ho-down.
DJ Kobayashi‘s musical styles vary! Everything from Swing, Rhythm and Blues, Oldies, Balkan, Gypsy and Electro Swing. You might know him from the fantastic Balkan group Gypsy Hill!
The venue is open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm. Happy Hour is 5-7pm!
