2020 Edd Donovan and the Wandering Moles
“Formidable…This band blew me away” UK Festival Guides, 2014
EDD DONOVAN is a highly distinctive, indie folk songwriter. “A natural storyteller and reflective lyricist” (Maverick Magazine); he has a rare, original talent. Originally from the North of England, he has made his home in Cheltenham. He has a collective of remarkable musicians around him called The Wandering Moles.
Their début album, Something To Take The Edge Off, was released in April 2014 and was immediately ranked under Great Debut Albums in iTunes. It received glowing attention including Folk Radio UK’s album of the month, a fantastic 4* review in Maverick Magazine and extensive national and international radio play. It is “a wonderful example of what modern folk music can be…gloriously different”. Folk All.
“Edd’s unique song craft proves to be witty, thoughtful…and blessed with a melodic touch” (Folk Radio UK) and although comparisons to Bob Dylan, Nathaniel Rateliff (even Johnny Cash) have been made in the press, he creates a sound that is both familiar and fresh.
After a UK album release tour in April 2014, a summer filled with festival dates, 2015 sees Edd on the road as a solo artist, performing select dates with the full band whilst also going back to the studio to work on their second album. Live performances with the band bring incredible energy, textures and groove to Edd’s wonderful songs
2150 Bob Smith and The Hickory Stick Boys.
In 2002 veteran performer and frontman Bob Smith decided the time was right to put a new band together…
He started by selecting some of the very best local musicians…. all of who shared his belief that all that ‘boring old Country music’ really needed was to grabbed by the scruff of the neck and to have it’s feet kicked from beneath it’s staid old image in some sorta order!…with that mission in mind Bob and the boys got to work…… Bob Smith and The Hickory Stick Boys have been igniting the country ever since with incendiary live shows rolling out their petroleum soaked version of ‘country rock’ ever since . Get ready for Geeetars and Yeeeeehars cos the Hickory Stick Boys are back in town!
