The Coal Porters, Woodend Bowling and Tennis Club, 6 September, 2015
Sunday the 6th of September the Coal Porters are back at Woodend.
They are without a doubt one of the best live acts to take the Woodend stage and a great night of entertainment is absolutely guaranteed!!
They claim to be the world’s first “alt-bluegrass” act, demonstrating the power of fiddle, mandolin, banjo, acoustic guitar and doghouse bass when matched with four-part harmonies and memorable melodies. They have taken this sound around the world being featured on NPR’s Morning Edition in the USA and having recorded a live session for Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.
The Coal Porters currently have five albums available. Their most recent, Find the One, was produced by folk-rock legend John Wood, producer of Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, Squeeze and Beth Orton.
“Not your average fish & chips bluegrass, the Coal Porters have expanded their music with broad strokes and fearless execution.”
Chris Hillman (Byrds/Flying Burrito Bros)
“Sid Griffin was playing Americana long before it was called that with his Long Ryders and his pioneering spirit lives on in his work with the Coal Porters.”
