The multi-instrumental band, based in Sussex, play an exciting blend of roots, folk and Americana.
‘Masters of the banjo, guitar, lap-steel, harmonica, stand-up bass,
mandolin and, yes, clarinet, combined with their trademark four-part vocal harmonies’ (Maverick Festival).
Often described as the ‘real deal’, every PORCHLIGHT SMOKER show is different. Material is not over-rehearsed, with the idea is that no song is ever played quite the same way twice, thus ensuring there’s a spontaneity and ‘edge’ to every live show.
They play a varied and at times virtuoso repertoire that mixes self-penned works with covers made very much their own. A range of instruments, including banjo, guitar, lap-steel, stand-up bass, harmonica and mandolin, even clarinet, accompany the band’s trademark four-part vocal harmonies. Based in the South-east, Porchlight Smoker started out as a duo in 2006 and since have expanded into the four-piece band that today play across the UK.
