Some kind comments at our live
From our appearance at Twinfest, Northampton: …before the incredible King Biscuit Boys play. Having only managed
to bag a slot at Twinfest due to a band member recently moving into the area, the two-piece play through an array of musical
styles, with an even bigger array of musical instruments, and keep the audience completely engrossed throughout.
The mix of
good time acoustic blues on guitar and harmonica, supplemented with a sprinkling of other instruments and a good balance of
originals and covers, with a generous drizzle of humour thrown in, left me going home have had a thoroughly entertaining evening
- John Cee Stannard. You can find the rest of the review and others at http://www.johnceestannard.co.uk/blog/
Folk on the Water - 2015. Crikey you guys were
fabulous tonight. What a great act to close our opening night with. You were a great act. Thank you!
Blues at the Fold
A swift changeover brought The King Biscuit Boys
to the stage, an odd pairing of the worldly looking ‘Lonesome Jon’ on guitar and young Rasta Craig on a pretty
mean harp, along with washboard and melodica.
They gave us some delightful Country and Delta blues with tongue in cheek
humour blending nicely into a very entertaining set. Jon could not help telling us that ‘I’m tired of working’
and we listened to songs as diverse as Mary had a little Lamb’ to an old blues ‘Cocaine’. Craig took up
the washboard and possible half his kitchen to deliver a lovely ‘Washboard Rag’. He certainly knows how
to use the harp. All in all with Jon’s easy gruff vocals they had lifted the tempo. I particularly liked ‘What
is it tastes like gravy?’ Those old blues men certainly knew how to write lyrics.
