Read what Paul Kerr’s has to say about our debut album “Tales from Tallows” on the America Uk website.
The Ridgeway Ramble is a video series presenting to you bands performing songs you may know, and some you may not on a platform that celebrates good old fashioned roots music. Hosted on The Ridgeway in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside you get a unique insight into the workings of a song as we ramble along.
Here’s our debut, performing ‘Hang My Hat’ from our album “Tales of Tallows”.
We’re very happy to announce you can now buy our debut LP from almost every digital musical provider, including iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play and Amazon.
There will be a full CD and potential Vinyl release in the springtime but we have a small number of pre release hard copy if you want to keep it old school. Click here to get in touch about getting hold of one of these!
We’ll be playing a celebratory show at The Library Bar Oxford on November the 17th before taking a short winter break to write new material and hone songs we have ready for the follow up album!
November will also see a one off special Roots Ramble extravaganza in the drinking holes of East Oxford where you can expect to see a powerhouse showing of the best of the local Roots scene.

Country 2 Country was a little insight into the juggernaut that is the Nashville music machine without having to get on an airplane across the Atlantic. They shipped a heap of big bold good looking Country singers over to our fair shores for a long weekend and a surprising number of UK Country fans got their Stetsons and Cowboy boots out of the loft and descended on Greenwich. We had the opportunity to lure some inquisitive ears our way playing on the pop-up stages around the Arena concourse and enjoyed sharing our own take on the genre with new listeners. It’s good to know there is an audience out there for The Great Western Tears and now thanks to Bob Harris we’ve reached a few more of them!
Festival and summer season gig news coming soon, meanwhile get yer’selves out in the Countryside and remember what it’s all about…
