PORCHLIGHT SMOKER: The multi-instrumental band, based in Sussex, play an exciting blend of roots, folk and Americana, and were described as ‘masters of the banjo, guitar, lap-steel, harmonica, stand-up bass, mandolin and, yes, clarinet, combined with their trademark four-part vocal harmonies’ by 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.
