The Spice Of Life
London, United Kingdom
What a night this will be! East Lonesome Drifters return to the Country Soul to launch their debut self penned EP 'A Satisfied Mind'. ELD are a six-piece combo who are known for playing a classic country repertoire that spans the musical ages. Regulars at the Country Soul over the years their March 2016 performance of Willie Nelson's classic 1974 long player 'Phases and Stages' in it's entirety was a notable highlight. Now we find the band in 2018 having, put pen to paper, cut four original compositions for your listening pleasure. Recorded completely on analogue 1950's equipment at the famous Sugar Ray's Vintage Recording studio in Essex the EP will come to you in green 7"vinyl 45rpm format (with of course a free download and three bonus tracks). Come and join us as the band perform their new EP and of course classic country favourites from the likes of Hank, Merle, Gram, Buck, Earle, Dylan and Mr Bob Wills. In addition, bluegrass stalwarts The Vanguards make their Country Soul debut. These guys are traditional but also seek to innovate and their original songs and instrumentals are written with one foot in the past and the other decidedly in the present. And Country Gentleman Mr Crispin Weir will be entertaining us all between sets with a Country Soul DJ set. All of this for a mere fiver on entry. Doors at 6pm.
