8:45


A unique blend of British and American Blues Rock. A hard-hitting, energetic Blues band from Kent, UK.
Formed in late 2013, long-term friends Lauren, Rob and Ben brought to bear the foundations for Flawless Carbon. Joined by Rich and Dan shortly after, the Flawless Carbon sound quickly took shape.

Variety is the spice of life, and FC have it in abundance. Blues, Folk, R'n'B and Pop play a large part in the background of FC's sound and history. Fused with influences from John Mayer, Joe Bonamassa, Maroon 5 and Black Stone Cherry, FC's unique take on British Blues Rock has them standing out of the crowd.

Currently working the local circuit around the South East of England, Flawless Carbon are quickly gathering attention from the UK Music industry. Their first EP is expected in late Summer 2014, with tours lining up for early 2015.

Power, Passion and Performance. You'll want to see them live.

Saturday 26th October 2019 - SAMANA - at The Hot Tin


"Laced with eerie, mystical atmosphere, alongside a plain-stated-gift for songwriting..." - GoldFlake Paint
Samana was realised in the heart of an Austrian forest surrounding a secret lake 3000 meters above sea level, during a journey the pair undertook across the natural wildernesses and distant cities of Europe; unaware of when they would return or where the road would take them. The name Samana provides an insight into the many conceptual layers that make up the band. As an ancient Sanskrit term, it speaks of one ‘who abandons the conventional obligations of social life in order to find a way of life more in tune with the ways of nature.’

Between themselves, Rebecca Rose Harris and Franklin Mockett are multi-disciplinary artists. Franklin crafts the instrumentation, recording, and production of the music to tape, whilst Rebecca Rose is the visionary behind the conceptual imagery, artwork, lyrics and film. The process by which all works are recorded is of great importance to Samana, who compose their art in their analogue recording studio and darkroom in the remote mountains of Wales.

Samana’s music offers a direct passage into the essence of ourselves, removing ones veneer, with threads of poetical sincerity, emotional honesty and direct openness. Each song is written with its own distinct weight and significance, born from the interpretation of dreams, the philosophies of ancient rituals and personal experience of love, loss and death. Through their rare and honest appreciation of dichotomy, their music emerges almost hauntingly, to lead us into the realms of the unassociated and unknown.

"Laced with eerie, mystical atmosphere, alongside a plain-stated-gift for songwriting, Samana's songs make for a strikingly distinct trip; one that you'll be following with dedicated concentrations all the way through." - GoldFlake Paint

Sunday 27th October 2019 - THE ERICS - at The Market Inn

2.30 to 5.00

The Erics crawled from the mud of the Thames estuary onto the southern shore and hammered a strat into the lush green fields of the Garden of England. Super nature played it's part crushing boyish dreams and tempering the flesh and bone into one well oiled machine. The result is slik, tight, exciting pure rock n roll.

Cohen is also a well-regarded singer and in 2014 won Bromyard Folk Festival's Future of Young Folk Award for singing.

A folk singer/songwriter from Wiltshire, Rosie Hood is known for her strong, pure voice and captivating performances. A BBC Performing Arts Fellow in 2015 and a 2016 Horizon Award nominee, Rosie has become more than purely a traditional singer.

June 2017 saw Rosie Hood release her first full-length solo album The Beautiful & The Actual, a collection of old and new folk songs, described by The Guardian as “a classy arrival”

Wednesday 6th November 2019 - HUNTER MUSKETT - at Faversham Folk Club, The Limes

FAVERSHAM FOLK CLUB
Hunter Muskett
7.30      Ticket Price £8 / £9
Chris George, Terry Hiscock and Doug Morter formed Hunter Muskett in 1969 whilst still at college. The band was lucky in having access to the clubs and colleges of London, including The Marquee and The Troubadour where they were finally spotted.

Within a year they were signed by Decca producer Kim Margolis and booked into the company’s West Hampstead studios alongside bassist Danny Thompson. Arranger Richard Hewson was commissioned to write orchestral parts for a number of the songs.

In 2010, following the Cherry Red re-release of ‘Every Time You Move’ the four Musketteers decided to meet up again for the first time in 30-odd years and a ‘one-off’ performance was arranged at The Aspinall Arms near Clitheroe. This has led to new dates, new songs and another album.

That Was Then, This Is Now (Limefield, 2013) The new CD was made at Limefield Studio, Manchester, with John Ellis and Bill Leader (who almost recorded Muskett 40 years earlier) helped along by the likes of Paul Burgess, Jerry Donahue and Ray Jackson. Ten of the eleven songs were band originals.
