The Coal Porters claim to be the world’s first “alt-bluegrass” act.
They demonstrate the power of the fiddle, mandolin, banjo, acoustic guitar and doghouse bass matched with four-part harmonies and memorable melodies.
The band have taken this sound around the world being featured on NPR’s Morning Edition in the USA and having recorded a live session for Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.
The Coal Porters have six albums available. Their most recent, No.6, was produced by folk-rock legend John Wood and producers of Fairport Convention Nick Drake, Squeeze and Beth Orton.
