Keston Cobblers Club: ‘Guide to Escaping’ Tour 2014
Based on folklore but full of modern kick, the Keston Cobblers Club was formed by siblings Matthew and Julia Lowe, who gathered school friends to revive the legacy of the old struggling Cobbler of Keston and his foot-stamping, shoe-scuffing music club. With beautiful harmonies, an oom-pah tuba line and a mish-mash of accordion, guitar, banjo, piano, harmonica and mandolin, the Cobblers make music that will make you dance “until your shoes wear out”.
Having played BBC Radio Two sessions for the likes of Dermot O’Leary and Steve Lamacq, the band have also been championed by the BBC’s Bob Harris and Simon Mayo, as well as the Financial Times among others. They’ve played festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden, Bestival, Green Man and Cambridge Folk Festival, and have been winning over audiences all over the country.
Following two packed headline tours earlier this year and a busy summer playing festivals across the UK and Europe, Keston Cobblers Club return to play a UK headlining tour in September and October 2014 in support of their “Pocket Guide to Escaping” EP, which is released September 1st 2014.
