The Dodge Brothers are renowned for playing the hell out of classic Americana. Described as “wonderful stuff” by Radio 2 presenter Bob Harris, they play an exuberant hybrid of country blues, rockabilly, jugband and skiffle.

Firmly rooted in these traditions they bring to them a freshness that has feet stomping and hands clapping from California to Cropredy, from the Mississippi to the New Forest. Their songs feature vocal virtuosity and heartfelt harmonies underpinned by joyous guitars, thumping double bass and rattlin’ snare and washboard. Their music has an authentically American tang – lead guitarist/vocalist Mike Hammond was raised in Alabama and his youthful musical travels took him all over the southern and western USA – but with a strong British perspective from Culture Show presenter and film critic Mark Kermode.

Mark will start the evening talking about his book 'How Does It Feel?' and will be joined on stage for the second half by the rest of the band for rockabilly, jugboard & skiffle that will lift the roof off The QH. The Dodge Brothers features Mike Hammond (lead guitar, lead vocals, banjo), Mark Kermode (bass, harmonica, vocals), Aly Hirji (rhythm guitar, mandolin, vocals) and Alex Hammond (washboard, snare drum, percussion).

We're delighted that the band are joining us hot on the heels of the Scottish premiere of their new live musical accompaniment of the 1930 film 'City Girl' at the 10th edition of the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival on Saturday 21 March.
