Swamp Stomp String Band
Thursday & Saturday
The Swamp Stomp String Band are not just a hillbilly-wannabe, country band. Sure, there are twangy banjos, driving guitars, a
honky-tonk piano, and a thudding double bass but these propel everything from drinking songs that will have the room stomping their feet and raising their flagons of cider, to ballads that will break even the toughest of folk. Play your cards right
and you might even get invited for a waltz!
Week after week you will find your Swamp Stomp boys rambling the length and breadth of the country, gigging a gruelling 200+ shows a year circuit, on a never-ending tour. However, they are seldom happier than when in front of a crowd and raising up a storm in their favourite haunts: from rural but rowdy roadside saloons; to dusty, booze-fuelled cider festivals; to the finest, dimly lit, good-time bars.
Taking a mixture of Country, Bluegrass, Ragtime and anything Americana, The Swamp Stomp String Band are certainly an act to keep one eye on, and both ears on. Their boisterous and bawdy, rough and rowdy, theatrically extravagant performances are to be enjoyed by folk young and old, rich and poor; or by those who just love to stamp their feet and have a hoe-down!
