2016-06-20 FREE DOWNLOADS – SONS OF CLOGGER
Sons of Clogger are a four piece band with a huge sound fusing folk with punk by intergrating 12 string acoustic guitar, 8-string mandolin, 5-string rock n roll bass and free style cymbol smashing drums. Their full-bloodied invigorating music is driven by uncompromising feveur and capitivates the crowds at festivals and venues up and down the UK.
In spring 2012 fellow Stokies, Dave Owen, Neil Owen, Paul Brown and Richard Raizada met at a mutual friend’s party, had a jam session and loved it. They arranged to meet up at the same time the following week in the local village hall, where a full-blooded, invigorating style of folk, infused with elements of punk and rock n roll began.
In 2013 Sons of Clogger quickly recorded their self penned debut album ‘Through Blue and Gold’. The album and their ever growing reputation for foot stomping, theatrical, in-your-face shenanigans, lead to the boys performing at a string of festivals including the highly acclaimed Acoustic Festival of Britain and opening up at Attila the Stockbrokers ’Glastonwick’ where Attila himself described them as The Men They Couldn’t Hang meets The Pogues a must see band with Immense intelligence for song writing.
The exuberant folksters are planning to play many more festivals across the UK in 2016, bringing their diverse following with them and amassing many more who embrace the flamboyance and fun. 2016 is already looking bright with the release of their EP “Blood Moon” and headlining slots at some very popular festivals.
