Foghorn Leghorn are a disparate bunch of oldishyoungish blokes who share a love and great fondness for each other, music, humour, beer and bluegrass - not necessarily in that order. They've been together for over 20 years. A gig with them is a bit like being in their family front room and seeing what develops each evening.
A beautiful and string-driven thing with banjo, mandolin, dobro, upright bass, guitar and fiddle plus sweet and sour Appalachian/North London harmonies. They like gossip, whiskey and taxis - occasional buses and chips - and jokes ranging in quality, memory and uncertainty. Tim Kent banjo, Eamonn Flynn mandolin, Uncle Kev O'Neill dobro, Del Brooks guitar, Chris Clarke double bass, Paul Fay fiddle. They all sing.
Started out as a bluegrass string band, Lunch Special have been captivating audience with their mind-blowing vocals, close-knit harmonies, and rambunctious energy since 2017. Taking inspiration from their diverse musical and cultural backgrounds, the London-based trio have created a soulful, raucous sound of its own kind through off-kilter originals and buried bluegrass, country, and gospel classics.
