Whalebone 'Spring' EP available to order

Our new EP 'Spring' is finished and ready to order via our website under the 'Buy' tab :)

Whalebone 'Spring' EP available to order

It has four tracks...

1. Into The Wind - was inspired by a Jackdaw taking off from a nearby roof.

2. You and I - which features an Ebow, an electronic device that simulates the sound of strings on a guitar.

3. Raggle Taggle Gypsy - a traditional tune that we hinted at on the last EP, but we think it's such a great melody it deserved an outing on it's own.

4. Stormlight - which is a bit of a slow building epic featuring Steve on his Les Paul... and some water sounds...

The price is £5.00 inc delivery and it is only available mail order through the website.

High Energy Folk & Acoustic Americana in two great concerts this weekend!

Fancy a concert with some High Energy Folk Music and Heartfelt Acoustic Americana on one bill?

If the answer is 'YES' then these are the concerts for you! This weekend we have invited special guest artists all the way from the USA, the wonderful Kelley McRae, along with husband Matt, to share two concerts with us. They're only playing a few gigs in Europe so this will be a rare opportunity to catch their heartfelt and evocative Americana live on your doorstep. We'll be playing a set each at two great venues, the Greenwood Centre in Coalbrookdale Shropshire on Friday night and Feckenham Village Hall in Worcestershire on Saturday night. More details on and
