Saturday 27th May 2017 - THE LEWIS CHESSMEN supported by SWALE RIDER - at The Bull Inn

THE LEWIS CHESSMEN


A two piece folk-rock acoustic group from Faversham, Kent

Henry Vinson &  Richard Moores
PiF: This highly original duo are well worth seeing!
https://www.facebook.com/TheLewisChessmenBand/


supported by:
SWALE RIDER


Swale Rider has nothing to do with Clint Eastwood, ponchos, cigarettes or cowboy hats. Indeed, most of the band have never been near a horse. Instead, it is a folk/rock combo formed by Mike Richardson and Piers McGinn in Bronx area of Faversham in November 2015. We play mainly covers comprising well-known songs from a better, vanished time. Sometimes we wear shorts on stage, sometimes flip-flops. Big toes are a speciality. Steve Rarraty sings, Richard Moores roars and Clive munns taps the tom-toms. We play folk, prog, sometimes mixed with poke and frog. Once you've seen us you'll leave with a smile on your face, but I guess that's schadenfreude for you.

"Fresh, upbeat, and poetic, with vocals to inspire a sing along. Kolo deliver in a way that both makes you smile, and emotionally relate." - Chemical Magazine
"Kolo are one of the most exciting bands to have come out of the South West in a long time. Having seen them live in the UK and the States, I can tell you its a wholehearted excellent show full of great music. They really deserve success." - Vic Morgan, BBC

"Musically and lyrically, they stand out. The songs, prickly yet anthemic, demonstrate a keen ear for tune as well as experimentation. There are electronic, 1980s-informed flourishes and even the odd operatic vocal..." - Graeme Demianyk, Western Morning News

"After a cooling off, the burning sensation that is Kolo is back hotter than ever and with a smoking new line-up. With explosive lyrics, fiery vocals and scorching guitar riffs, this is what makes Kolo the band for 2012 and beyond." - Phonic FM
