HUNTER MUSKETT is an acoustic/electric 4-piece playing distinctive original songs in a folky, bluesy sometimes Americana vein.
Originally formed in 1969 they played at home and abroad until 1974 producing two, now collectable, albums: Every Time You Move with bassist Danny Thompson and the Keith Relf produced Hunter Muskett
Since reforming in 2010 the band now tours again when schedules permit. A come-back album of new material, That Was Then This Is Now drew excellent reviews as has their latest CD Unafraid and Sober.
