One of the most highly acclaimed folk/bluegrass bands in the UK today, the Southern Tenant Folk Union are on tour from Edinburgh to release their fifth album “Hello Cold Goodbye Sun”. A seven piece band with banjo, mandolin, fiddle and harmony vocals, they perform with ‘soul & beauty’ on their murder ballads & laments and tear it up with their ‘Hootenanny sawdust-kickers’ and high energy sound. Championed by Bob Harris & Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 2 and lauded by the music press, the band are currently lighting up the folk music scene.
‘The band knock up a fierce, raw and earthy music that is the stuff of Mumford & Sons’ dreams…’ The Guardian
