Sunday 3rd October
Pub open from 12pm – Live music from 4pm
Specialising in innovative folk rock, they first emerged in 2009, determined to pair new interpretations of traditional tunes with their own manic compositions, and make them dance.
The sextet of multi-disciplined musicians from Faversham, Kent, takes their inspiration from the depths of English folklore and legend and the classic folk rock sound of the 1970s. Like their predecessors Fairport Convention and The Albion Band, Green Diesel’s sound is born from a love of traditional English music and a desire to reinvent it for modern audiences.
Plus support from Carl Street.
A familiar face of the Kent music scene, Carl has written and recorded an impressive and diverse body of work over the last couple of years. This will be one of the first opportunities to see him perform his original music on a stage!
I have played many pubs, venues and festivals across Kent and the surrounding areas. I would describe my style as eclectic, as I don’t like to be restricted to one genre/style, which I hope my audience enjoys listening to as much as I enjoy creating. I grew up in a seaside town and developed a passion and interest in music from a very young age, which remains to this day. I currently sing, play guitar, bass, keys, ukulele, harmonica and mandolin and I intend to expand further to other instruments in the future.
’Bunking the Midnight Train’ will be my first solo album. Whilst creating this album, I found myself adopting snippets of various genres of music and adapting them to suit my own style. I made the decision not to record an album in one set style and I feel that all the tracks sound different and unique in their own way. I hope there is something for everyone in there. As well as drawing on inspiration from various artists and genres, I also take inspiration from my own personal life experiences and sing about subjects such as mental health, love and loss.
