PORCHLIGHT SMOKER return to the Green Note following the release of their fourth album.

‘Foot-stomping, whooping, mind-blowing wonderfulness’ – Fatea magazine

The band’s style has been described by American Roots UK as ‘high-quality roots music that contains a blend of edgy country and British folk, played by a tremendously talented four piece band with excellent vocals and harmonies that few can match’.
All the members are multi-instrumentalists, playing a wealth of acoustic instruments like mandolin, dobro, banjo, double-bass, harmonica – even clarinet. Three lead vocalists – Scott Smith, from Wichita, Kansas, Steve Bell from Dundee and London-born Fred Gregory – bring their international mix of vocal and songwriting styles together to form the band’s unique sound. And double-bassist Scott Warman plays with many international touring artists, including Alice Wallace and Amelia White.
‘First-class musicianship and lyrics as Americana meets Celtic rock and much in between. It’s hard to believe that Porchlight Smoker and sticks of rock hail from the same British town.’
Maverick Magazine

‘A timeless record, fusing elements of folk, bluegrass and country. Not every day you hear so many instruments played – guitar, banjo, mandolin, double bass, sparse percussion and even a jew’s harp. Lots of strings. I like that’
Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

‘An absolute gem; sunshine music from the South Coast. Porchlight Smoker are a lovely band’
Bob Harris BBC Radio 2
